Speed on Website Optimization

Speed equals Time

Speed is another important element in web optimization. Speed here means the amount of time spent for your web pages to download its content. Previously, I discussed with you some important tips on how to optimize your web pages for web crawlers and to add up I’ll be talking about speed on web optimization.

It has been proven that an increase in page load will annoy your visitors and probably decrease traffic and ad revenues to your website. Visitors mostly spend less than 30 seconds before they decide to stay or leave a particular site. Most likely if it will take them another few seconds for the page to fully download, visitors will proceed to a next possible site in the SERP or Search Engines Result Page.

Be sure that your web pages are loading quickly into your user’s computer screen despite their internet connections. Here are ways on how to speed up your web pages.

  • Keep your scripts simple. Avoid unnecessary use of scripting languages and flash. Incorporation of such makes it harder for web crawlers to crawl your site.
  • Avoid adding irrelevant web graphics on your web pages. Make an impressive expression to your visitors through your content not with the use of unimportant graphics or fancy animations.
  • If an image must be added to convey an important idea or point, consider the image size and file type to use.

Thus, with more demanding audience and harder competition, speed optimization must be highly considered. To know more tips on website optimization, grab Andy Kings’ book entitled Website Optimization.
