BlessUP Optimize Page SPEED Day, business soul friends!
Faster page loading times are crucial to a business. While optimizing page speed is most often addressed by our front-end team, our North Star – Don’t Make Me Wait which means minimizing the wait time of the users as they navigate through pages is the responsibility of the people who created the website.
A fast-loading website is critical to attracting and retaining current users. Below are some tips for improving a website’s page speed
- Optimize images
Images are often the biggest contributors to slow-loading web pages. To ensure optimal page speed, it is crucial to compress and resize images without compromising their quality. Use lazy loading. Lazy loading is a technique that delays the loading of non-critical resources, such as images or videos until the user scrolls down to view them. This approach reduces the initial page load time and improves perceived performance
- Minify the files
Allows a website to store frequently accessed data in the browser, reducing the need to make new requests to the server
- Use Content Delivery Network
A CDN keeps versions of your website’s pages on multiple servers throughout the world, allowing users to browse the contents fast from the server that is nearest to them.
- Stay updated
Update your tools and libraries often to benefit from the most recent performance improvements and bug fixes. Also, stay informed about best practices and emerging techniques in web development for optimal performance
