Website Speed Has Not Improved

Hi,

Our website speeds are great in Australia (where website is hosted) but majority of our clients are in the US so we set-up Cloudflare on a test website to see if it would improve.

We’ve tested in Vancouver on GTMetrix and website speed is slower by a second on the test site (with CDN). We’ve also made optimisations based on what cloudflare suggests to set-up and have seen no improvement.

Is there something we can do to fix this? We’re on the free plan as we wanted to test out first.

Thanks for any feedback!

Hi @stephanie.g,

Have you set up some aggressive caching?
If you can you simply try a cache all content rule to see if it helps?

Please test it out as well.
Thank you.
