Would you ever let the circle on your screen take its time before a page you gets loaded? I am sure you won’t and neither would the person you expect on your website. Why would a person struggle with slow pages when there are ample options for him to make a switch.
Mobile needs your attention
The smartphone user base is touching higher heights, and thus you need to have a better presence on Mobile devices than even computers.More than 60 percent of people making online purchases do it via their smartphones. Almost every business today is planning to have a Mobile App.
So how can you give your Mobile presence a bit more attention? One of the most crucial things to do is to have fast loading mobile pages. Here are some of the tips to accomplish this effectively.
1. No complex elements
Your website contains innumerable elements and dozens of servers. More of these elements lesser the load speed. If some of your elements are unoptimized and unmonitored, they slow the pages even more. So if you think you have a lot of such unwanted elements, don’t compromise your speed for them. Get rid of them asap.
2. Have ample amount of Graphics and Videos
Another thing that contributes a lot to the slowing of page speed is Graphics. You cannot do without them. You need images, logos, and graphics for an impactful aesthetics. But the thing is, you need to have them in perfect balance so that they don’t affect your page speed. Using JPEG over PNG would cut your image size to half. So have that fair amount of images and not more than that for better conversions.
Videos are other important means of customer engagement. But again they would cost you a lot of speed. So be careful while you embed those video content as even a second of delay can cost you a lot.
3. Cut down you DOM ready time
5. Caching is beneficial
HTML 5 uses the local storage of your browser for the data frequently used. This has immense benefits. If the data is cached in the local storage, it need not be drawn from the server again and again. This lets you lessen a lot of loading time. Additionally, you save a lot on your server usage, and people can even access partial features without the Internet.
6. Content Delivery Networks
CDN stores you pages on multiple servers around the globe. It can be helpful in your cause of lessening load time as well. Having your pages at multiple servers makes your website quicker to load. Visitors will see complete pages without waiting. Although you need to pay for the services, it’s totally worth the cost.
7. Database Indexing
It’s a very crucial thing to keep your web pages speed optimised. Your database might be storing huge amount of consumer data from different sources. When your pages pull out data from such storage, it has to go through thousands of pages of data. The load time is seriously affected. Indexing comes in handy at such times. A well indexed and organised database directs the browser quickly to the right place.
So deploying these 7 tactics, you can up your load speeds by a significant amount. A second of delay kills about 10 percent of your business. Beware.
