How to Increase the Website Loading Speed for Visitors

Sharing is caring!

Perhaps, nothing can be more irritating than a website with slow loading. It doesn’t impart bad impacts to end users but also the website owners. In the digitalized world, the applications of websites are multi-pronged, and use of websites becomes the necessity. The website serves as the bridge to connect people globally. The speed rate of loading the web pages can be the core cause that sites don’t get such a number of hits which they deserve.

Here below some tips are enlisted to boost up the sites’ ranking for providing the attractive interface of the site so that the audience sticks to it:

1. Decreasing the size of the Website

When the website has an issue of slower loading, then the site becomes unattractive for the visitors. They will close the site immediately even before the loading of the homepage. If there is the incorrect file format of the photos in the site, then it can damage the browsing experience. For preventing to encounter these issues, you should reduce the size of the page within the 0.5MB. You should select the appropriate screen resolutions.

2. Developing the site for mobile compatibility

Assuming that you use the 3G network, more than 75% of mobile pages consume about 10 seconds. Generally, a significant portion of overall traffic is collected through mobile phones. Thus you should have a footprint of a small site to provide happiness to the mobile users. In case you employ the CMS (Content Management System) such as the WordPress then you will get the plugins to create the site mobile optimized.

Instead of converting the website on PCs into the mobile site, it is a better option to design a site for ensuring the best practices for the mobile users. With the help of project AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages), you should use a simpler variant of the site. Surely, it will also speed up the loading process for the pages on handheld devices. 

3. Ensuring the site is minified

You should monitor your site periodically so that new projects or contents can be improved as compared to earlier one. You should minify the HTML, JavaScript contents of the websites. You should ensure that the combination of sites’ resources is enabled after checking the website.

4. Ignoring the loading scripts if not required

The loading of various JavaScript files lowers down the speed rate of the website. You should avoid the scripts related to loading from the third party server. You can employ the defer for delaying the JavaScript file loading so that it can boost up the speed of loading webpage. The option of async indicates the web browser for parsing the HTML content continuously at that point of time when the files are loading. When the files are completely loaded then pause will be occurred.

This will instruct the web browsers for executing the files of JavaScript after the web browser has completed the parsing process of the HTML. You can employ the defer and async safely on the analytics-cum-error reporting platforms without impacting the web page. You can employ the additional lightweight buttons if it is needed and remove them when it doesn’t add value to the site. 

5. Employing CDN (Content Delivery Network)

The CDN copies the website onto the servers globally. It can decrease the travel period of data by linking the visitors to the server located nearer to them. The servers of CDN can cache the static contents. You should leverage the caching of the web browser for speeding up the loading process of sites to repeated audiences. The tool of browser caching functions through the downloading of the files taken out from the servers.
