ACTION INSIGHTS : CUTTING THROUGH THE CLUTTER

How Fast is Your Website?

How Fast is Your Website? | Your eyes can deceive you! It is hard to replicate the loading speed of your website on desktop and especially hand-held devices.

You must take into account the following:
• Your machine speed (your computer or device)
• ISP speed (your connection to the Internet through COX, Verizon, Comcast and others)
• Browser type (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari)
• Browser cache (how many times you have visited a website using the same browser)
• Router cache (how many times you have visited a website over the same connection)

From your stand point, your website is loading just fine; though 90% of the time it is not. It only appears to ‘YOU’ that your website it is loading fast.

Fixing a website that is loading slow takes the following factors into consideration:

Speed Rules
• Avoid landing page redirects
• Enable compression
• Improve server response time

• Minify resources
• Optimize images
• Optimize CSS Delivery
• Prioritize visible content
• Remove render-blocking JavaScript
• Use asynchronous scripts

Usability Rules

• Configure the viewport
• Size content to viewport
• Size tap targets appropriately
• Use legible font sizes
