Speeding-up websites

  • Your site is up and running, but really slow?
  • It was all good, but then some pages slowed down, or even wouldn’t load!

Sounds familiar?

Why is the download speed so important?

First obvious answer would be user experience. We all got used to fast internet. We need information and we want it now. When the user reaches your site for services or products and all he gets is a loading blank page will most likely try your competitor’s page. People got used to quick responses, and we need to serve them ASAP.

The less known reason is the Google website ranking system. The smaller the response and download time, the better ranking you got. Or the other way round: the slower the site, the lower the chance to get higher. Sure there are other factors then speed, but is as important as any other!

  • Don’t lose customers because of slow performance!
  • You may lose potential business opportunities because of a small mistake.

How is speeding up your website done?

01 Assessment and discussion

The first step is to evaluate which parts or functions of the site have inadequate speed. You encountered the problem. You know your site, so you most likely know it was always slow, slowed down gradually or suddenly. The whole web page is slow, or just some of its parts/functions. Have you noticed that whether it depends on time of day, number of visitors or the device used for browsing. These are all important informations for an effective survey. In general, prior access to the source and database of the site is important, so it’s easier to determine the possible causes and the amount of work to be done. A realistic quote can be given after getting familiar with the source and the database.

02 Analysis

Assessment and discussion helps to outline how complex the work is. When the problem and it’s solution looks obvious, the analysis is free of charge and you pay only for the solution. On the other hand if the problem is complex or your site is too big, i give you quote for the analysis too. Analysis is about finding critical parts and bottlenecks of the website’s serving process. After tracking down the problems I’ll introduce you to the results, possible solutions and their prices.
