We recently talked about how to make website development easier for both developers and content marketers.
Now, we want to take that a step further and share some tips for how to optimize your site’s performance, as well as what you can do to ensure that your site can continue to generate traffic and profits.
We’re not talking about optimizing your website’s design, content, or even how it loads in order to make it faster, but rather optimizing your performance to keep it from degrading.
This is particularly important when you’re building an online business or even a social media network.
“Optimizing” means to do something that you’ve never done before and which might make your site look less appealing or confusing.
In other words, optimizing your site is about making it easier for users to find what they’re looking for and making it faster.
Optimizing your site for speed If you’re not already optimizing your web site’s design and content, it’s time to do it now.
Here are some quick tips that can help speed up your site: Make sure your site loads quickly.
Don’t rely on slow websites to make up for slow websites.
If your site has to load quickly, it will slow down your users’ experience.
To optimize your page speed, take the following steps: Add or update your landing pages.
Add a splash screen or two to the top of your page to increase the amount of text displayed.
Add and change the color of your header or sidebar depending on how important your site needs to be.
Use background images or video to highlight important information.
Include some sort of a banner or icon at the top or bottom of the page to indicate that it is your site and to keep the user’s attention.
