In the digital world, slow websites are unforgivable.  Customers are just not willing to wait even a few seconds for a page to load.  In fact, 47% of people expect a webpage to load in two seconds or less.  Even a one-second delay can affect your conversion rate by 7%.  This can cause substantial monetary losses.  Not to mention all the new customers who visit your site only to bounce quickly due to lag.  There are some easy solutions for improving your speed.  We have narrowed down five ways you can improve your website’s speed.

1 Image Optimization

With more and more websites relying heavier on images and video, optimizing your images needs to be a priority.  Images can contribute to over 60% of a page’s total load time.  Saving images that you use for your website as web images will compress the files so that they will load faster for you.

2 Minimize HTTP Requests

80% of your pages response time is spent on the front end,  things like loading images, scripts, and flash.  Hopefully, you are not using flash on your website anymore.  HTTP requests are made for each one of these components.  You can use Google’s developers’ tool to see exactly how many HTTP requests are being made on your pages and see if you can reduce or combine some of these.  This will directly increase your load time.
