With Google now factoring page load time also for mobile devices, when considering the relevancy of search results, there is even more pressure on web developers to have pages load as fast as possible. Slow page load times can be a burden on many websites. Today, a load time above 10s is unacceptable with 1-3 seconds being considered ideal (and, of course, less than 1 second, more than ideal).
But there are a few ways in which page loading times can be drastically reduced.
1. If it’s static, let somebody else deal with it.
Unless you have finely-tuned servers for static content placed throughout the world, there’s little point in implementing your own static content delivery solution. (Even as jazzy as that sounds).
3. Expires & Cache-Control.
Adding meaningful Expires and Cache-Control headers means that your visitors’ browsers cache and revalidate content in the way you wish. Any repeat visits will experience a significantly improved response time.
4. Add W3 Total Cache to your WordPress blogs.
The speed of a website can be a critical factor to its success. Faster loading websites can benefit from higher SEO rankings, higher conversion rates, lower bounce rates, longer visitor duration on site, better overall user experience, and engagement. That is why it is important to take advantage of the many free website speed test tools available out there so you can achieve optimal performance .
