10 Tips for Optimizing Your Website’s Speed
10 Tips for Optimizing Your Website’s Speed
Slow websites destroy conversions. In reality, in two seconds or less, almost 50 percent of consumers expect websites to load. And around 40 percent are going to leave a website that takes three seconds or more. The experts at our web development company believe that if it takes longer than three seconds for your site to load, you will lose nearly half of your visitors before they even make it to your site.
Tips for Optimizing Website Speed by Expert Web Developers Dubai
Here are some of the tips jotted down by the experts at our web development company.
Reduce http Requests
In reality, look at image sprites, which allow you to combine multiple images into one. As web development company, you can use CSS from there to dictate which portion of the combined image is rendered.
Use Caching Systems
It's time to start using a caching method if you discover that your site is linking to your database in order to produce the same content. Your site would only have to create the content once by having a caching system in place, instead of creating the content each time your users visit the website. Don't worry, depending on how you set it up, caching systems regularly update their caches, so even continuously changing web pages (like a blog post with comments) can be cached.
Optimize Your Images
The experts at our web development company know that larger images lead to longer load times. So, select the right size for the job: one thing is high-quality photos of your items, while another is a "follow us on Twitter" image.
Even, for the job at hand, select the correct picture format. You'll want to know about and when to use the various formats. Finally, rather than using HTML scaling, make sure to directly resize images. Setting width= "600" height= "220" is not working well and you are still pushing the complete download of the larger file.
Stop Using Images to Display Text
Text in an image not only becomes inaccessible to screen readers and totally useless for SEO, but it also increases the load times of your web pages by using images to view text because more images mean a heavier web page. As per our web development company, you must decide whether it would be more optimal to serve font files than to serve images.
Minimize Redirects for Website Development in Dubai
Often, you need to redirect the browser from one URL to another to indicate a new URL position, monitor clicks, tie various sections of a web together, or reserve multiple domains. Redirects trigger an additional request for HTTP and add latency. Only manage technically required redirects and you can't find any other solution for it.
Choose Infrastructure Wisely
You can get what you pay for, whether you host your website "on premise," with a hosting or web development company or with a cloud provider. If you run a website for output quality (i.e. outages can impact your web development company or organization), avoid shared hosting. Instead, make sure that your platform is committed to the hosting infrastructure.
Remove Query Strings from Static Resources
Even if a Cache-control: public header is present, you cannot cache a link with a "?" in its URL. The question mark works in the same way as Ctrl+F5. For dynamic tools only, use question strings. As a result of using KISSmetrics, SEOmoz uses two complex URLs with "?" but 2-3 queries are fair.
Database Optimization in CMS
The experts at web development company believe that optimization of databases is an efficient way of increasing efficiency. The database size increases and the website operates slower if you use a content management system (CMS) filled with complex plugins. The WordPress CMS, for instance, stores comments, blog posts, and other data that takes up a lot of data storage.
Avoid Bad Requests as A Good Web Design Company in Dubai
Broken ties result in 404/410 errors. Those cause needless demands. Correct your broken URLs (pay special attention to images). Our web design services Dubai focus on developing optimized websites.
Reduce the Number of Plugins
Plugins are common components of each platform. They incorporate unique characteristics suggested by third parties. The more plugins are installed, the more resources are required to run them. Try to avoid plugins that load a lot of scripts and styles or that create a lot of database queries. The best choice is to keep only the appropriate ones and ensure they are kept up to date.
