Do A Page Speed Test On Each Web Page Of Your Site
If you are creating a website or have a website then make sure you test website speed on each web page if the page speed is fast well done, but if the results show you that your page speed is slow then rebuild the page and make it fast.
Don’t worry when you test website speed the report will give you a breakdown of each item or object on your web page with the file size so you will know where to start and what to remove to make the web page faster, this Webmaster tool should be used on each web page.
Before you remove anything write down your page speed then redo the test once you have made the change’s and see the difference.
What Make’s A Page Slow
Be careful of how many image’s and the size of the image you have on a page. If you have more than two or three then think about removing some pictures. Do you really need so many images?
Are your image’s the correct size, do not load a large picture then resize the picture using the image size in the code the picture will look smaller but the loading time will be for the larger picture, rather use the image resizer this will not only make the image smaller it will also reduce the image file size for faster loading.
Then use the image optimizer to remove unnecessary bytes from the image file, reducing the image file size even more without effecting the image quality.
Be careful how many Scripts you have running on the page when you make your own website this will also slow your page down.
