Are you and customers frustrated because your website does not render quickly?  Don’t ignore it!

Does your website load very slow? That’s a major issue in today’s competitive online marketplace. You’ll lose impatient customers that won’t hang around to see that website page load.  It’s also included by search engines like Google when they calculate your page ranking – after all, who wants to promote a web page that’s slow to load?

Many of our page speed clients are generally ignorant that it’s actually their website that is slow!  They will say

Oh, I thought it was my ISP that was causing websites to load slow,,,,”,  or “Really, I thought that’s something I was not in control of…” or “I relied on my web designer to tell me these things which he never mentioned…”

Here at Browserweb, we do a lot of work speeding up websites, from html websites to the more popular content management driven websites like WordPress which have all these plugins, css files, js files, themes and images that are not optimized resulting in a poor page loading rank from Google Page Speed and YSlow.

How do you Fix a Slow Website?

Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

 – Remove Render blocking Javascripts

Before a web browser can physically display a page to the visitor, it has to parse the page.   If the web browser encounters a blocking external script during parsing, it has to stop and download that Javascript.  Each time the web browser does that, it is adding a network round trip, which will obviously slow down the time first render the page first time.

– Optimize CSS

Web browsers block external CSS files before displaying content to the visual screen. This incurs additional network latency and increases the time it takes to show the content to the visitor.

Minify JavaScript

Compressing JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time of your website.

Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.  By keeping image sizes to a minimum to reduce the amount of time a user is waiting for resources to load,  this saves time for vistitors on slower connections.

Enable compression

Many web servers can compress files in gzip format before sending them for download, either by calling a third-party module or using built-in routines. This can reduce the amount of time it takes to download the resources needed to render your web site.

Minify HTML

Compressing HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.

Minify CSS

Compressing website CSS code can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.

Reduce server response time

Web server response time measures how long it takes to load the necessary HTML to begin rendering the page from your web server, subtracting out the network latency between Google and your web server.   There may be variance from one run to the next, but the differences should not be too large.   In fact, highly variable web server response time may indicate an underlying performance issue.

Prioritize visible content

If the amount of data required exceeds the initial congestion window, it will require additional round trips between your server and the visitor’s web browser. For users on networks with high latencies such as mobile networks this can cause significant delays to page loading.
