Tips For Improving Your Website Speed

SiteSpeed

In 2017, fast-loading content is key to keeping customers on your site. Is yours up to speed? Consider the following tips to improve your website speed.

Using a content delivery network will speed up your site's loading time considerably and improve user experience. A content delivery network (CDN) uses an efficient file delivery system that allows users to quickly access pages. Many CDN's use services located around the world. Choose a location close to the end user, and improve the experience dramatically.

Secondly, reduce the number of redirects your site uses. While redirects can sometimes be handy, too many redirects can unnecessarily slow a site due to bad server requests. Reduce the number of redirects to as few as possible. You should also scan your site for any broken links, as these delay site load time.
