One of the most important factors in website ranking is site loading speed. Even with users experience with your website. A slow loading site is a huge turn off for returning users and unique visits. But there are a lot of way to boost your website speed.

1. Minified CSS/JavaScript

By minifying(removing spaces, commented code) CSS and JavaScript file you can increase your page speed.

2. Loading Resources Asynchronously

Loading Resources(CSS/JS) asynchronously make your web pages amazingly fast. Because your content will not be waiting for any resource to be loaded.

3. Enable compression

Compression reduces response times by reducing the size of the HTTP response. Gzipping generally reduces the response size by about 70%. Some caching extensions/plugins do it automatically, sometimes you need to set it up manually at the web server level.

4. Sequence of CSS and JavaScript

It is preferable for performance that JavaScript files, as well as CSS files, are loaded in the footer of your site so that they don’t block the downloading of other assets on your site, therefore slowing it down.

5. Using CDN

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a collection of web servers distributed across multiple locations to deliver content more efficiently to users. The server selected for delivering content to a specific user is typically based on a measure of network proximity.

6. Optimise your HTML

Make sure your page view source (press CTRL+U for view source) have the least space.

7. Use a Fast Hosting Server

If you have a decent amount of traffic, you should not be on hosts like Bluehost, Hostgator, GoDaddy and other low-budget web hosts like that.

8. Specify Image Dimensions

Before your browser can display your web page it has to figure out how to lay out your content around your images.

9. Serve Resources from Less Different Domains

Sometimes you are using more and more plugins on your site because of the functional requirement, But unknowingly you are using resources from a lot of the domains.

10. image lazyload

lazy loading is also an effective way to load website amazingly fast.

Identify which of these you need to fix asap and observe how your user experience will change (users will stay more on your website and navigate smoothly), your bounce rate will reduce and your site ranking on search engines will move up some spots.
