“Patience is a virtue” doesn’t apply online – even one-second delays increase bounce rates and affect your search rankings.
Use these tips to make your site speedier:
Scale images appropriately
Shrinking images with CSS isn’t enough – browsers still load them at full size – so scale them before you upload them.
Optimize your CSS
Your CSS loads before people see your site, so the longer that takes, the longer they wait. Optimized CSS = faster downloads = faster site access for visitors.
Keep scripts below the fold
Page size will only increase as users demand more, more, more, so keeping page speed up might get tricky – but remember: ONE SECOND can lose a lead.
