Your Website is Slow… what can you do?
The top two things that can improve its speed are:
- Get Faster Web Hosting
- Optimize Your Website for PageSpeed
Get Faster Web Hosting
Fast web hosting is a must, and we recommend the blazing fast web hosting servers from i3dTHEMES.com.
It is absolutely crucial that you make sure that the server that your website is on is not overloaded with other websites using shared resources that your website needs in order to serve the files to the requesting visitor.
Many hosting providers pack too many websites on a single server in order for response times to be fast times. In addition, those websites running WordPress are also subject to the speed and latency of the database server that they are connected to. WordPress is an extremely versatile Content Management System (CMS) that allows the end user to manage their site directly through their website. What’s extra fantastic about WordPress is that there are over 50,000 plugins available from WordPress.org to add dynamic functionality to your site. Unfortunately, at 500,000 lines of code, the WordPress engine can take precious seconds to serve your pages, causing your visitors to bounce, and your placement in the search engines to be at risk.
Which is why it is extremely important to make sure the web server your website is on is as fast as possible.
Optimize Your Website for PageSpeed
One of the most effective ways of speeding up the loading and rendering of your website is to optimize it for Google PageSpeed. PageSpeed is a metric that Google uses to determine how well a website is optimized to provide the fastest load and render of your web pages.
The faster the website, the more likely it will appear higher in the search engine results pages.
Google has provided a tool to help webmasters determine what it is that they can do to optimize their websites called PageSpeed Insights. When it comes down to the tasks it takes to optimize your web pages, it will tell you that you need to look at:
- Optimizing your images
- Enabling server side resources such as GZIP Compression and Browser Caching
- Deferring all ‘render blocking resources’ to the end of the page
The trouble with manually optimizing your web pages is that whenever you make a change, you need to start all over again. If you make a change in your CSS, you need to recalculate the critical above-the-fold CSS, re-insert it into your web page, re-minify your CSS and your HTML. Of course, you would need to make sure you always have an “un-optimized” backup of your website, so that you an make future changes.
Manually optimizing takes time and a lot of effort.
