First Pingdom performance issue is related to query strings in static resources. These are related to my Timthumb on the fly thumbnails again, basically the Timthumb script takes an image URL, add a few variables to the image URL and it pops out a thumbnail on the fly.
I can not fix this without replacing the Timthumb functionality, it’s on my list of things to do (has been for a while), but it’s a minor performance issue and I keep putting it of as it’s a lot of effort and not even sure it can be replicated FULLY with core WordPress functions.
Next issue is Minimize Redirects. All three issues are related to Google Analytics which are hosted on Google’s site, nothing I can do about it other than removing Google Analytics and I need that data for SEO analysis.
Next we have “Server static content from a cookieless domain”. To fix this I would have to setup a cookieless sub-domain and serve all the images via the sub-domain. I’ve tried this in combination with a self-hosted CDN, it was a pain to manage! I’ll take the minor performance hit :-)
