You missed the part where using XHTML and tables are completely unrelated.

This is what I do for my websites:
1. Gzip compression
1. Image optimization
3. html minification
4. css minification
6. creating css sprites
7. for more complex sites in Joomla I turn Joomla Cache on.
I check the website speed n following websites:
1. developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ (most important one - thanks to this tool you will have an ides how google sees your website)
3. gtmetrix.com (most comprehensive analysis of website speed, lots of suggestions what to change).
Page loading speed is one of the most important factor considered by Google for search engine result pages. Whichever programming language, or technology you use to build your website, however, if the web server where your website is hosted lacks to provide the required speed and resources to your website it won't perform good in SERPs. The more your page loads slowly, the more will be your website's bounce rate as though you put your efforts in driving thousands of visitors, however the page loading speed will frustrate them and force them to the competitors website.
Personally, I would suggest you to find a good Shared Cloud Hosting provider and move your site there. Additionally, it would be more advantageous if you could opt for a CDN for your graphics and other multimedia. Certainly, both will provide you the expected results.
I often laugh at the goofy nonsensical hoops people will jump through to try and make a poorly written and disastrously concieved website "faster". From CDN's, to subdomain trickery, to whitespace stripping, to nonsensical BS about how tables "render slower"... Here's a tip, if a 386/40 on win 3.1 with 'dreadfully slow' IE4 could render a table in an acceptable amount of time, in the age of multi-ghz multi-core processors such claims are a bunch of BULL! -- It's all a bunch of pointless malarkey to just sweep developer ineptitude under the rug.
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE if people didn't make websites with several dozen or even hundreds of separate files, megabytes of images, and megabytes of "JS for nothing" to deliver single digit k of plaintext and a half dozen content images, they wouldn't have to pull all these stupid stunts.
JS for nothing and your scripts for free... that ain't working, that's not how you do it! Lemme tell ya, these boys are dumb.
When I'm building a website, I like to set size restrictions for a 'normal' page; As a rule of thumb, NOT counting content, NOT counting things like social media 'like' buttons (which are grossly inefficient and poorly coded, but at least you can usually count on them being cached) I try to keep my page templates under 72k in 16 files. That's my upper limit; that's HTML + CSS + SCRIPTING + IMAGES. as a rule of thumb, if you can't bring a page template in under those limits, you are doing something WRONG!
Likewise, with content (both plaintext and images) plugged in, again not counting social media bloat, I try to keep 'normal' pages under 144k in 24 files -- there are exceptions to those limits (like image galleries), but again if you can't bring your page in under those limits, you are doing something WRONG!
... and I'm NOT talking gzip compressed, I'm talking uncompressed totals!
But what can you expect with PSD jockeys who know **** about **** sleazing out pretty pictures and having the giant brass monkey balls to call it "design", back-end coders who don't know enough about HTML and CSS to be making websites in the first place, and HTML/CSS coders taking sleazeball halfwit shortcuts like frameworks out of ignorance and/or ineptitude.
It's really a total laugh, people wasting megabytes of crap in hundreds of files to deliver 5k or less plaintext and a dozen or less content images, then going "why is my site so slow?" -- might as well schedule an appointment with Dr. Hackenbush.
"Doctor, doctor! it hurts when I do this."
For wordpress sites:
1. Use Caching plugin
2. Use CDN
3. Reduce sidebar / Footer clutter
4. Remove Related Widgets
5. Reduce Social Buttons
6. Avoid Extra Comment Systems
7. Disable Gravatars
8. Load less Comments
There are lots of online minification tools, for example (links):
Yes! too many images can do slow speed of your website.
Improved loading speed of the website / webpage sometime has been taking as the factor for ranking in search engine by Google. Hence it is not most important but off course small factor to get rank well in the search engine hence we should never ignore it. I hope this link will help you in more detail for “How to speed up website/webpage’s loading time” :
