My sports blog start page is very slow and I have tried to speed it up but everything I try stays the same. I know nothing about bandwidth or MYSQL or site mapping so I don't know if any of these would help. There is a lot of java script for ads and sports updates involved in the site and most likely is the problem. I am very new at this (May 6 2008) I started this site and have made many changes myself. But I am at a loss here. My question is are there ways to speed up the load time? and if so how might I go about it, without taking to much out it, that it becomes bland. I thank all in advance for any help. Thanks TriZetBlu

You just answered your own question. Ads are one of the reason and another will be excessive use of sport updates
