We are aware that internet users don’t have in particular the high-caliber of patience. Every user wants their websites to load faster. In case our website doesn’t have an appropriate speed then this can lead to loss of traffic. The most important factor that Google considers is the speed of a page in search engine rankings. It is not only compulsory to have a website that loads quickly, but it is beneficial too.
Today we will let you know the most important steps which can help you to speed up your website loading.
1. Caching and CDN
Versions static content caching to increase the speed of a site has been long. You can start with the storage cache in the browser, although it must implement other issues. We can even find alternatives to PHP cache if we do not use a shared server.
