An engineer knows that every decision can impact performance, so projects must be continually assessed to develop the optimal design. It’s like keeping a bike fast— you have to keep tuning it up, or else you’ll end up with a slow mode of transportation.
Your website is no different, especially if you are are running a CMS like WordPress. Improving your site sped requires clear assessment of the problem, executing solutions and monitoring impact. The good news is that the tools to improve mobile speed are easily accessible.
Website speed is a big deal, and it also probably the most overlooked feature you should really care for. Speed has a direct influence on the chances of a visitor returning to your site, it also increases conversion rates, customer satisfaction levels, and even your website ranking in search engines like Google.
You don’t have to worry about it : we will walk through the steps you can take to get your site up to speed. The tools we have developed are running in the background and you shouldn’t even notice them. Your site will just run faster. But How Fast ?
Measuring Loading Times
Before you learn how to lower your loading times, you’ll need to know how to measure them. Pingdom is a great tool for this, letting you measure your site’s performance and get all sorts of information for free.
At VLoss we are committed to have your website loading in less than three seconds according to Pingdom measuring tool. If you mainly have text with an image or two, your site should load in less than two seconds. Of course if your website is a WordPress install with dozens of activated plugins and a page load of 5Mo, it will never load in three seconds.
