TECHNICAL TOPICS – How Do I Get My Website To Load Faster?
The faster your site, the better your search engine rankings
Not only will a faster site be more enjoyable for your visitors, your website’s load time is a factor in its search engine rankings.
Follow these tips to improve the load time on your pages.
- Optimize the size of images for the web. Large images will slow the page load time. Optimization makes page loads faster by lowering the resolution and/or size of the image. You can also make images smaller by saving them in JPEG or GIF formats.
- Order of stylesheets is important. Place CSS code at the top of your HTML documents in the HEAD section.
- Use Caching or a CDN Caching is a way to reduce processing or loading time for commonly accessed parts of your website. A CDN is a little bit like a cache for parts of your website that don’t change. And you don’t have to be a tech wizard to get started! It’s easy to use a CDN service like CloudFlare, or if your website uses WordPress, a plugin like WP Super Cache, to speed up your load times.
