We have a zipcode search on our site using this plugin. It is slow:
The problem seems to be worse with higher radiuses. The link above takes about 30 seconds to load.
Can you help us solve this?
Sorry to hear that. What version of WP, BD plugin and Zip search module do you have? One option you can try is Enable high performance searches? found under BD General settings that can help improve search speed.

Can you please also check for any conflicts? Here is an article about how to test for theme and plugin conflicts with Business Directory, which may help pinpoint the issue:
If that doesn’t tell anything, please contact us directly so we can investigate further. We need the following information:
– WP admin password
– WP login URL
– FTP username
– FTP password
– FTP servername/IP address
– Your WP and BD plugin version?
