Video, high-end graphics, and Flash animation create an interactive and attractive website, but these elements increase a website's load time. A website that loads too slowly leads to a poor user experience, which increases bounce rate. Most web pages that load slowly can be tweaked for better performance through code changes. Code changes include external file management and compression. Just these few changes increase the amount of visitors to a website, and it can even increase ranking in Google.
For websites that display high-end graphics and large web page elements, gzip is a standard format that compresses large files. When the user accesses the pages, the browser downloads the compressed files, limiting the amount of bandwidth used. This is beneficial for users with limited slotsduck bandwidth. Some users block large images to reduce the amount of time web pages load. Although it's beneficial for load time, the user has a poor experience, because he is unable to view graphics. Use gzip on files to improve the experience for users with slow Internet connections.
Remove Meta Tags with "No-cache"
Meta tags are used for search engines, and they control some behaviors when the user accesses your web page. The "no-cache" directive tells the browser not to use cached information, so the user's web browser always makes a new call to the server. This is especially problematic for cell phone users. Remove the following meta tags from your web pages to implement caching and speed up your visitor's browsing.
These three small tweaks greatly improve the visitor's browsing speed and lower the chance of losing money due to slow loading times. Just a few small changes to website code speeds up your website, which reduces your pages' bounce rate.
