    The problem is it is setup, but I am still running slowly and I have gone from 1000-1200 page views a day to 300-400. I want to correct this.

    Is there some kind of script I can add to the head / body / footer of my site to load the entire contents of the page, but then load the adsense ads up last?

    The main reason you are running so slow is all of the bloated code that you have.

    You are loading 23, yes 23, javascript files. That is a lot of code you are loading, and much of the code is DUPLICATED in every file. Further, dimes to dollars, I bet that 90% of the code is NOT EVEN USED. Bottom line is there is NO reason to have over 2 javascript files with UNIQUE code in each one.

    Further, you are loading 5 CSS files and should never need more than one.

    Every file you load requires additional handshaking time as well as loading time. Why load code that is never used? Why load the same code over and over again?

    I also noted that you are having problems with your menu on mobile because of javascript issues with your menu. What about the mobile users (and desktop for that matter) that TURN JAVASCRIPT OFF for security reasons or simply because of cost? If your site will not work with javascript off, your bounce rate will be high simply because your site is NOT USABLE.

    Finally, your front page (and probably all pages) are full of errors >>> https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http://highperformancejunkies.com/. Errors cause all kinds of problems particularly with the indexing bots. When they hit errors, those bots will often QUIT indexing a page. If you are not getting indexed, you will not be found when people search using tags relevant to your topic. And if you can't be found, your visitation numbers will suffer.

    I also notice that your page contains NO TITLE. One thing that means is people will not bookmark your site. Another thing it means that if someone does find the page via search, they may ignore it because they have no clue whether your site is spam or a real site that the visitor is looking for. It also means that the indexing bots may stop indexing your page since there is no title to display on the search results pages.
