Hi, I’m Nate Babbel, and today I am going to answer the question: How can I improve my page load speed?
Page load speed is incredibly important. A one second delay can cost your site as much as a 7% decrease in conversion rate. And on top of that, if your site is too slow, your Google rankings will be penalized.
I am going to go over 5 of the easiest and most impactful ways you can reduce your page load speed.
- Optimize your images: Reduce all images to the smallest possible size that still retain’s the original picture quality. Use Photoshop or other services such as jpegmini.com to save images into a jpeg format and then reduce the size to the lowest possible value that still retains the same quality and crispness.
I will cover more page load speed tips in a later video.
