WeRelate:Suggestions/Site speed - request for faster loading

Original request

Pages at WeRelate seem to load very slowly. Can we get a little background on what might be causing this and what could be done to improve it? Do any of these play into it?

  • server age
  • the ads
  • running old Javascript
  • running "batch" jobs such as GEDCOM uploads (added by --DataAnalyst 22:33, 8 July 2017 (UTC))
  • the ever growing list of double redirects
    • How harmful are the double (and triple) redirects?
    • Do we use a bot to clear them now? It doesn't look like we do, so if not, could we?

Much thanks, --cos1776 11:59, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
