How To Improve Your Page Load Speed
Compress With GZIP
You may want to inquire from your web host if they allow GZIP compression and deflation with their servers. This approach can enhance the load speed of a page significantly by reducing file sizes to as much as 70% without affecting the quality of images and videos.
Optimise Your CSS and Scripts
Have these two aspects load up on external files instead of having them cramped in each web page. By doing this, the browser will simply have to load files on at a time, instead of each time a person visits each page of the website.
Optimise Your Images
By using Fireworks or Photoshop, be sure that you’re saving your images with the “Save for Web” option to reduce the size of an image drastically. There is an image quality slider that will let you see the trade-offs between better visuals or lower file size.
Take Advantage of Caching
There are content management systems today such as WordPress which use plugins that will cache pages of a website and display it to the users quickly, so it doesn’t have to generate the same page every time they visit it. Using a plugin like WP Super Cache can take out a big chunk of loading time for your web pages and improve your site speed.
