My Boss Is Behind My Life To Minimize The Load Time Of Websites !

  1. 1. My Boss is behind my life to minimize the load time of websites ! If your Boss is also doing the same than let me help you and give you some ps which definitely help you to reduce the load me of your website and keep your business growing and Cool down your Boss too. Here are simple yet effec ve ways to make sure that your website is running fast. 1. Op mize Images: always use the “Save for the web” feature included on image edi ng so ware. Images represent the heavier load on virtually any website so make sure you are op mizing them. 2. Check Image Formats: apart from op mizing images it is important that you choose the right format. JPEG format is suitable for photographs or true‐color images. The GIF format should be used with flat‐color images like logos or bu ons. PNG works very similar to GIF but it supports more colors. 3. Op mize Your CSS: most websites are designed with CSS nowadays. Make sure to aggregate and clean your CSS. 4. Use a Slash on Your Links: when a user opens a link on the form “h p://” the server will need to figure what kind of file or page is contained on that address. If you include a slash (/) at the end of the link the server will already know that this is a directory page, reducing the load me of the site. 5. Use the Height and Width Tags: many people forget to add the Height and Width tags on image codes. Those tags will make sure that the browser knows the size of the image before loading it. The result is that it will reserve a spot for the images while loading the rest of the page, speeding up the whole process. 1 of 2 12/22/2009 2:06 PM
  2. 2. p 6. Reduce the HTTP Requests: when opening a web page every object (images, scripts and the line) will require a round trip to the server. This latency can add several seconds to the load me of your site. Make sure to reduce the number of objects and to combine CSS files and scripts together. Happy Blogging !
