Ever stop to think that maybe your site isn’t getting results like you hoped – because it’s not loading fast enough? If you haven’t, it’s time to start. To put it bluntly, performance can make or break a website.
Speed is a crucial aspect in providing a pleasant user experience to visitors of your site. It ensures that a visitor’s limited attention span and time are spent on actual content and not wasted waiting for images and scripts to load.
The amount of people using mobile phones to access the web is growing rapidly, while the percentage of people using sluggish dial-up connections to the internet is decreasing. In certain areas, such as social media and search, mobile usage has already surpassed desktop usage. As everyone who uses a smartphone on a regular basis knows, waiting for a web page to load completely over a cellular data connection is really annoying.
No matter the medium via which your website’s visitors arrive, speed is of the utmost importance. Google found that even a little delay of 100 to 400 milliseconds on their search results page caused a noticeable drop in traffic. According to other research, roughly one-third of your visitors will abandon your site if it takes longer than two seconds to load. Plus, it’s quite unlikely that they’ll return. Because Google now considers page load times when ranking websites, a slow site is less likely to appear on the first page of search engine results.
Improving your website’s speed can be broken down into two main groups: decreasing the size of your files and decreasing the number of times your site communicates with the server.
The following list only scratches the surface for website optimization, but it gives you a general idea of what can be done.
Images are the vast majority of your site’s file size, and optimizing images to reduce their size can make your site load several times faster.
The following list contains key points for optimizing images on your site:
Every trip to the server in the form of an HTTP request takes a few milliseconds, and those milliseconds can add up. All those little Twitter widgets, Facebook Like buttons, and advertisements can make dozens of server requests each. You may be surprised to see how many server requests even a simple website makes.
