Whether migrating to Joomla! will solve the problems that I face with my site?

Post by Alims » Mon May 20, 2019 11:16 pm

Hi there,

I am very new to web world, little bit scared little bit confused, I started my news & Media site My Host insisted that I should use Joomla, while my developer Insisted that WP is better option and he designed a web on WP now i am facing problems like my site take time in loading, SEO getting difficult, Bounce rate is Increasing, and also I am consuming more then 250 GB of bandwidth in a month with just 21k views on my web in a month.
Will any body here can guide me if I migrated to Joomla will I be still facing these problems?? how to get rid of all above mentioned problems? Is Joomla lighter then WP?
I am sorry if my reply does not reflect the post but I think I should take advice with you people.

It fully depends on how you use the CMS, what template/theme you use and how you optimize everything.
Both CMS systems have a lot of functionality in the core. They can both be extended with components/plugins.

However, the more extensions you use, the more resources your website might use.
If you have only a few extensions, but you use a lot of JavaScript, JQuery, large images, external Facebook posts, Google fonts, etc, then your website might still be slow / use a lot of resources.

So it's difficult to say which CMS is lighter. It depends a lot on the media that you make available,
and how well the CMS + server are optimized.
