Website Speed Is one of the major issues for every blogger or wordpress user. When we first create a website it runs smoothly but after a few months it becomes so heavy and it creates a lot of problems for us.
We already know that it is very difficult to get indexed our articles in google search console if we have speed or load time issue in our website which ultimately affects our traffic and hence our income also decrease
To speed up our traffic and income we also need to speed up our website and in this article we will talk about some easy and simple ways to increase the speed of our website. This is so simple that it will just take 2 minutes to follow the process
FOR BLOGGER AND WORDPRESS
1. IMAGE SIZE OPTIMISATION
Large size images are one of the worst causes behind the decreasing speed of our website. It creates a lot of problems on our website. It increases the loading time of our whole website or a single page and which ultimately reduces crawling frequency of our pages and articles. So you need to fix this first. Whenever you upload an article and if you are using images in it then you need to reduce the size of your images and believe me it will work for you. Just search for any image size reducer there are many available online or you can download a simple image size reducer from Google Playstore named QREDUCE
First reduce the size of the image and then upload it to your website. You need to reduce the size of the image as much as you can. Every Time whenever you use an image reduce it to below 50kb and if it affects its Quality then you can make it below 100 kb but don't use any image with high size because it will cause a lot of problems for you in near future
2. HOMEPAGE CONTENTS
This is another reason which increases the loading time of our website home page.
If we show many articles at a time on our homepage then they will take extra time too to load properly because some of the articles contain images which will take time to show properly and hence our website will become slow. So you need to limit the contents of your homepage.
I have personally faced this problem, First I had around 14 articles on my homepage and when my blog became slower day by day then I just chose to show only 6 articles on my homepage and it decreased the loading time of my homepage and also made a better navigation experience. So try to use minimum articles on your homepage and 6 is the average number of articles you can choose.
To make our website attractive we use different widgets. But do you know using excessive widgets can increase the loading time of your website. So guys you need to limit the use of widgets. First identify those widgets which are not that important and by which there will be no impact on your website. We use most widgets on the left or right sidebar and after identifying the useless widgets you need to remove them all. By this process you can decrease the loading time of your homepage and other pages too
5. BACKGROUND IMAGE
Some guys try to make their website beautiful and attractive by replacing the background of their website by a high quality image and yes it will work but simultaneously it will decrease the speed of your website. There is a simple solution for this you just need to go with the inbuilt background of your theme or template.
6. THEME OR TEMPLATE
If you are using blogger or wordpress then after sometime you think that I need to buy a premium and good looking theme and here you made a mistake. You don't test the speed of your selected theme. You need to test your theme first and if it gives good speed results then go for it. The platforms which provide premium themes also provide a demo option of the theme and you need to use this method for theme speed check up. Just click demo option of the theme you want to buy and after that copy the url of that theme and then check the speed with some website speed checker
In this way guys you can save your money and simultaneously you can choose a better and high speed theme for your blogger or wordpress
Before selecting a hosting provider if you are using wordpress research about it. Because many hosting providing platforms compromise with speed of website after sometime. So you need to buy a hosting from a trusted platform and after doing your own research
