      An expert would need admin access to your site to see what can be optimised, and possibly do it for you. A forum isn’t a good way to do that.

      Have a look at https://www.techrepublic.com/forums/discussions/woedpress-slow-speed/ . That’s all we can offer.

      I can certainly provide you with some general advice that may help you address performance issues. Here are some steps you can consider:

      Optimize Images: Large images can significantly slow down your website. Make sure to compress and properly size your images before uploading them to WordPress. You can also use image optimization plugins like Smush or ShortPixel to automate this process.

      Minimize Plugins: Excessive plugins can bloat your website and negatively impact performance. Review your installed plugins and deactivate or remove any that are unnecessary. Keep only the essential ones and ensure they are up to date.

      Choose a Fast Hosting Provider: Your web hosting plays a crucial role in website speed. Consider upgrading to a high-performance hosting provider, especially one that specializes in WordPress hosting. Managed WordPress hosting services often offer better performance and support.

      Content Delivery Network (CDN): Implement a CDN service like Cloudflare or StackPath. CDNs distribute your website’s content across multiple servers globally, reducing load times for visitors from different locations.

      Browser Caching: Ensure that browser caching is correctly configured in WP Rocket. This helps store static resources like images and stylesheets in visitors’ browsers, reducing server requests.

      Database Optimization: Regularly clean up your WordPress database by removing unnecessary data, such as post revisions and spam comments. You can use plugins like WP-Optimize or WP-Sweep for this purpose.

      Lazy Loading: Enable lazy loading for images and videos. This ensures that media content is only loaded when the user scrolls to it, reducing initial page load times.

      Reduce External HTTP Requests: Minimize the number of external resources like external scripts, fonts, or stylesheets. Each additional HTTP request can slow down your site.

      Monitor and Analyze: Use tools like Google PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to identify specific performance bottlenecks on your website. These tools provide recommendations tailored to your site’s issues.

      Content Delivery Optimization: Optimize your website content for faster loading. This includes optimizing code, using efficient themes, and reducing the use of heavy animations or multimedia elements.

      Try optimizing your images by compressing them without compromising quality. You can also use lazy loading to load images only as they are needed, reducing initial load time.

      ‘m happy to help you increase the performance of your WordPress website using WP Rocket. Here are a few things you can check:

      Make sure you’re using the latest version of WP Rocket. WP Rocket is constantly being updated with new features and performance improvements.
      Check your WP Rocket settings.
      Make sure that the settings you’re using are appropriate for your website. You can find more information about the different WP Rocket settings in the plugin documentation.
      Use a caching plugin.
      A caching plugin can help to improve your website’s performance by storing static copies of your pages and serving them to visitors instead of having to generate them on the fly. WP Rocket is a caching plugin, but there are other options available as well.
      Optimize your images.
      Images can be one of the biggest performance bottlenecks on a website. Make sure that your images are optimized for the web. You can use a tool like ImageOptim or Kraken to optimize your images.
      Use a CDN.
      A CDN (content delivery network) can help to improve your website’s performance by serving your static files from servers that are closer to your visitors. There are many different CDNs available, such as Cloudflare and Amazon CloudFront.

      I was facing these issue too but doing the same steps I enhanced the page speed.
