Hi! My cousin has an online shop and she's asking me for my help about the latency problem she's having in her website.  I really don't know anything about this latency thing.  Anyone who knows what I should tell her?  Suggestions?  Thanks!

Discovering why your cousins hosted web page is slow will involve the hosting company telling them how its hosted and how many paths or hops a web query might take.  Might involve fine tuning of the way the web page works.

Not particularly my skills, but it's a start.

I went to her site and I saw that it is full of images - I was thinking that could be a part of it - I was also able to search latency problem and brought me to ghostery. I am still going through the site to fully understand the business and then later on find its competitors. My cousin is lucky that I like research - otherwise, I wouldn't even bother.
