WordPress Theme & Plugin Performance Profiler
If you have experience performance problems on your WordPress web site, there would be multiple reasons. You can test your web site on performance analyzers.
In addition to using these analyzers, I recommend you to profile your theme and plugins. There might be a lot of heavy plugins and themes which affect your website’s performance directly.
Today, I have analyzed my and my dear friend Ahmet’s websites with a profiler plugin.

Analysis of Test Results
This report shows us the theme and plugins’ impact on page load times. As we can see, some of the plugins are heavier than others.
So, the next step is finding new plugins instead of heavy ones. Depends on theme loading time, we might even consider replacing it.
