There may be plenty of reasons for your poor website performance, consider:
- heavy HTML, CSS, JAVA codes.
- Unoptimized images or videos or video links in your content.
- Too many Redirects
- Not handling cache.
- Server hosting provider.
- Increased blocking time
- More time to interact – FCP & LCP
- Unused Plugins
Below effective tips on how to increase the speed of your website and make your every effort pay off in the long run to beat your unhealthy performance
Large image files can significantly slow down a website. Use image optimization tools to reduce the file size of images without sacrificing quality.
Minimize HTTP requests
Every time a user visits a web page, their browser sends an HTTP request to the server for each element on the page (e.g., images, scripts, stylesheets). Minimizing the number of elements on your webpage can reduce the number of HTTP requests and speed up your website.
Use a content delivery network (CDN)
A CDN stores copies of your website on servers around the world, so that when a user accesses your website, they can be served content from the server that is closest to their location. This can speed up your website, especially for users who are far from your server.
Enable browser caching
When a user visits your website, their browser stores certain elements of your website in its cache (e.g., images, stylesheets). When the user visits your website again, their browser can load these elements from its cache instead of sending another HTTP request to the server, which can speed up your website.
Optimize your database
If your website uses a database (e.g., MySQL), optimizing the database can improve the speed of your website. This can involve things like indexing columns, optimizing queries, and normalizing the database.
Upgrade your hosting
If your website is hosted on a shared server, it may be competing with other websites for resources. Upgrading to a dedicated server or a cloud hosting solution can give your website more resources, which can improve its speed.
Use a website accelerator
There are several tools available (e.g., Cloudflare, Fastly) that can speed up your website by optimizing various aspects of the delivery process. These tools can be especially effective if your website receives a lot of traffic.
