Page load speed has become an important factor in determining how well a web page performs. The faster a page loads, the better for users and search engines alike. This article will show you how to improve your page speed and rank higher on Google Page Speed Insights.
4 Things You Can Do To Increase Page Load Time
1. Reduce Image Sizes
There are many ways to reduce image sizes without losing quality. One method involves using CSS3 to resize images. Another option is to use a tool such as TinyPNG.com to compress images before uploading them to your site. You can also use tools such as Photopea (free), GIMP (free) or Photoshop (paid). Even easier, if you are using a content management system like WordPress (which we will always recommend!), there are plugins, such as as Imagify (paid) and reSmush.it (free) that will do the heavy lifting for you!
3. Use A Content Delivery Network
Content delivery networks (CDNs) are used to deliver content from one server to many servers around the world. A CDN helps reduce latency because it delivers content closer to where people are accessing the site. In addition, a CDN allows you to use fewer resources than if you were hosting content yourself. You can find our websites riding on Cloudflare or KeyCDN.
4. Reduce HTTP Requests
