I am fairly new to the server and hosting side of websites, so I may just be missing something simple… but I have not been able to find an answer to my issues doing a few hours of research.
My load time was under 1 second, and now depending on the page are up to around 5 seconds. I have tried disabling Cloudflare to see if it was my hosting provider (GoDaddy), but with CF disabled my page load speed goes back to under 1 second - which leads me to believe that it is a Cloudflare issue. I have another website on CF and it loads perfectly fine no issues.
I have a link for the webage test before and after.
(the disabled doesn’t tell much because with CF disabled I have no SSL and the test comes up with insecure address warning).
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am not an expert in this stuff. I am starting Google Ads strategy this week for work but my quality score is being greatly diminished because of horrendous load times, and I cant just disable cloudflare and go no SSL because the bounce rate is almost 100% w/ no active SSL.
