How To Increase Website Page Loading Speed

How To Increase Website Page Loading Speed

Are you trying to figure out how to increase page loading speed? It can seem complicated if you’re not sure where to start. However it is much easier to improve website speed than you may believe. You just have to be willing to learn a few new things about websites! Whether you have WordPress or something else just follow these instructions for faster page loading time. And if you don’t feel like dealing with it contact us today and we can implement these optimizations at an affordable price.

Image compression

Are your images compressed? How large are the files? If your images are large and uncompressed they could be contributing to why your website is slow. There are countless free plugins that will compress your images to a reasonable size. You definitely want your images to be under 1 MB, in fact I like mine to be under 200 KB. Go to your dashboard and click on media. Investigate the size of your images. If they are on the larger side go upload an image compression plug-in and start optimizing their sizes. I prefer a plug-in called WP-optimize (if you have a WordPress website) because it also does cache, minification, and more. 

Lazy Load Images and Video

How to increase page loading speed with lazy load! What is lazy loading? This is the implementation of a tool that delays the loading of images and video in order to allow the page to load first. Lazy loading improves performance and saves system resources. For example, if a web page has a photo or video that the user has to scroll down to see, lazy load will display a placeholder and load the full image only when the user arrives scrolls down. This reduces initial load time by reducing page weight. 

Cache

How to improve website speed with a cache tool? Do you have a cache tool on your website? If you’re new to websites you probably don’t. And even if you do it may not be activated. 

What is a Cache?

In a computing sense: it is hardware or software that is used to store something, usually data, temporarily. For example backups, logs, deleted information, irrelevant information, etc. These unnecessary files take up a lot of space and slow down your website. All you need is a simple tool to clear (delete) the cache and increase page loading speed. As mentioned earlier, the WP-optimize plug-in will help you compress your images and clear your cache. 

Use a CDN

What is a CDN? How to increase page loading speed with a CDN? CDN stands for content delivery network and it refers to a geographically distributed group of servers. They work together to provide a fast delivery of Internet content. CDNs provide the quick transfer of assets needed for loading Internet content such as HTML pages, javascript files, stylesheets, images, and videos. The majority of quality web traffic is served through CDNs today. For example: traffic from major sites like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon.

CDNs are free to use, for example you can make an account with Cloudflare. 

Minification of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS code

This is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from JavaScript HTML and CSS source code without altering its functionality. For example this includes the removal of whitespace, comments, and semicolons. Also  the use of shorter variable names and functions. Minification of these codes results in compact file size.

How to improve website speed With minification if I can’t code? Do not worry you don’t have to know how to code! There’s a plug-in for this too, in fact my earlier recommendation of using WP-optimize will minify your code!
