Website speed matters for the Internet users and it is cited as the most common reasons for leaving the sites. With rising number of websites and the competition it is important to work on this sensitive element of the websites.

HubSpot’s Gregg Crystal has shared some ways that can help you prevent your website suffering from slow page loading.

Crystal says, “While a few modern content management systems like HubSpot implement speed-enhancing options out-of-the-box, the more common systems like WordPress and Joomla require a little manual labor to get up to speed.

Now let’s look at some essential speed solutions that every webmaster should consider.

1. Optimize Images

Images are one of the most common bandwidth hogs on the web.

The first way to optimize your images is to scale them appropriately.

Many webmasters use huge images and then scale them down with CSS. What they don’t realize is that your browser still loads them at the full image size.

For example, if you have an image that is 1000 x 1000 pixels, but you have scaled it down to 100 x 100 pixels, your browser must load ten times more than necessary.

Scale your images before you upload them to your site, so you don’t ask for more from your visitors than you should”.
