Image Optimization – A website is made visually appealing by using high-quality images. Images are one of the important elements to make a website beautiful. The images used can be of small size or large size, but it is always recommended to use high quality images which are of smaller size. Large size images makes your website heavy and that makes the website load slower. It is important to compress the images which reduces the size of the image but maintains the quality at the same time.
Minimize the Server Requests – A website is basically a package of file which includes programming files, images, videos and other necessary files. These files are stored on a hosting server which stores your website data and makes it available to the public over the internet. Whenever a person enters the website URL in the web browser, the browser sends request to the website server to upload the files. If the website contains large number of files, the server might take time to respond to the requests which then makes the website slow. Try to minimize the number of files
Add Expire Headers– The Expire Headers saves the internet data and makes the website fast by signalling the browser whether to request the server for files or to take it directly from the browser cache.
GZip Compression – GZip is a compressing tool which is used by signing into the server dashboard. GZip compresses the website files and makes the files lighter to transfer from the server to browser.
Fix broken links – Broken links are the least things you want on your website. They create unnecessary responses on the ERROR 404 page. Check all the broken links and fix them to optimize your website at its best.
Minify Website’s HTML, CSS, and JS files – Just like Image compression is necessary, the programming files like HTML, CSS and Java Script files also needs to be compressed to its smallest size. This makes the website lighter and eventually increases the response time.
