Since my last update of my WordPress blog it was horrible slow. My mobile phone was not able to load the blog anymore, my computer needs something arround one or one and a half minutes to load the next page, on the blog and in the admin dashboard too. I asked myself why.
I googled a lot to solve this problem. Nowere I found a tip that helps. So I took the logfile of myserver and tried to find the problem there. But there was no error shown in logfile. The only hint I got from this logfile was the solution. There were a lot of entries, that my blog loads the WordPress Hit Counter. So I deactivated this plugin and, suprise suprise, my blog was as fast as before again.
Maybe It is also a solution for you, if you do not know, why your blog is so slow?
