Job Description

Update code on our WordPress blog (simple website: pictures, text, membership area) so that the page loads in under 4s. We have already done the research and have a list of tasks, but trust the successful contractor to implement these + any others identified to achieve the results.

Job description:
We've built two beautiful websites over the last two years. In the last four months, however, they've both dropped in ranking and the page load is up as high as 13s+. This is frustrating, as it's simply a blog with nice images and it's critical to our success that it loads quickly.

Preliminary research has been done and we've identified several areas of improvement. We would like to see the following:

- Review of attached reports
- Recommendation of whether or not these should be implemented
- Implementation of report items
- Identification of other areas for improvement

Success will be measured based on whether the page load speed is under 4s for first-time load on webpagetest.org and score is over 75% on http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/

Web development project type:
Modification to an existing project

Client side or server side development:

Specific programming languages desired:
