This article discusses some of the basic concepts of optimizing a web page to make the web page load quickly – or at least, more quickly. It is for the benefit of those who are not technically oriented, but need to have a means of discussing these concepts with their web developer.
Reduce the amount of data required to display the page
Reduce HTTP Calls
The next important key step to increasing web page loading speed is to reduce the calls to the internet within your web page (reducing HTTP calls). There are several aspects to this issue: combining scripts and style sheets, using image sprites, and avoiding redirects or frames. These are critical areas in which your website performance can be improved.
If your optimized website still loads slowly, you will need to evaluate your webhost and your ISP. If your webhost is slow, your website will load slowly. You will need to upgrade your webhost. Or it may be just that your ISP speed is slow in which case other people will see your website load quickly, but you will always see it load slowly. Time to shop around for a new ISP.
These are just a quick general discussion of the aspects of website optimization. Please contact us if you have further questions.
