I have a fairly new affiliate website (3 months old). I have about 17 posts and 10 pages. On Friday I started having issues. Pages with Amazon IMAGE links(not text links) are going extremely slow. To the point where GTmetrix doesn't even work and just times out because the page won't load.
-Also, underneath my Amazon images I get a bunch of code/characters that show up. That usually just happens when a page has an issue loading. (see attached image)
-Also, my favicon spins and spins while the page tries to load. Some pages take up to 5 min before the favicon stop spinning.
I use WP-Rocket, Elementor Pro, Astra Theme and A2 Hosting. I talked to all of them and they all said it's not an issue with their end, and I just need to find ways to optimize my pages to load faster. Before the issues on Friday, GTmetrix worked great and most posts/pages were 1-3 seconds load time. Some of the bigger posts with lots of Amazon links were closer to 4-5 seconds load time. Now those Amazon pages won't even load up GTmetrix.
That makes no sense to me because it was working fine Friday morning, but by the evening it started having issues. I'm not a developer, so I need help.
I'm looking for someone to figure out why it's going so slow and optimize my site. I want every page to load under 4 seconds on GTmetrix.
