How to optimize site speed




How to optimize site speed:

There are many things that can slow down a website....but one of the best tools to find out how to optimize your site for the fastest load times is provided by Google...
 
"Google PageSpeed" is an extremely useful tool that lists, in order of importance, various things you can do to improve the load time of your site.
 
You can install the "PageSpeed plugin" to FireFox and Chrome, but for those who either do not want to install anything or only plan on trying it out,
 
Google offers a web version of the same tool called Google Insights.
 
We recommend downloading the plugin if you plan on making many changes as it's much easier to run the test multiple times. 
 
Google also offers the API for Insights and a guide to the PageSpeed extension.
 
 
If your site is slow even after you have a high "Google PageSpeed Score", contact Technical Support and we'll fix it right up for you.
