To decrease your web page load speed to minimum load you need to follow below steps one by one.

  • Load your website with website URL:
  • Get the report of your website loading items for home page or any other page you want to rest, it will give the complete report of web page load elements with time.
  • Get collect the element either css/JavaScript/image which takes more time to load.
  • Most important and first step is try to find the 404 error links, it mean the image/css/JavaScript file loading in your webpage but actually it’s not available so in this case your browser will try to search it till time out of some seconds and then only it will go for next element to load. In such case it’s just time waste for load the webpage via browser it such elements take most time and may be reason to low speed load webpage problem. So first of all find such elements from the coding and remove it as it’s no meaning in the page and just disturbing the browser to load the page.
  • Second is try to avoid outer page links load for image/css/JavaScript, because if in some case the website from where you are trying to load the image/css/JavaScript is slow, it will affect your webpage load.
  • Third is user minimum JavaScript file include, I don’t saying you to don’t user the JavaScript but only try to merge all those JavaScript code in one file so if you are including total of 10 js files you should merge those in to one or two and check the website speed. I am sure it will affect the site speed as normally all browser cache the js, css & image after second time you load the webpage and as number of link request is lowest, your site speed will highest.
  • Forth step is use encrypted/packed version of JavaScript file as files are light weight and it may help to load webpage easy.
  • Fifth step is optimize your css files and same as above in JavaScript case merge all css files to one or two css files so it will decrease number of link request. Also you need to optimize the css via css optimizer freely available on the internet.
  • Six step is check image load, if any image takes much load time, get it download and make the size minimum so that it may less time to load. and try to merge all icons & small images in to one single image so it also minimum the link request.
  • Seventh step is check your html structure (it’s optional) as you need designer help to check the html structure and optimize the html structure.
  • Eighth step & most last step is user cache plugin. In the wordpress there are many cache plugins freely available and not for wordprss you can find such available and readymade code may available in the net and can use it.
  • Last step is related to technical person which is somewhat related to cache the site page, I have added below code which you need to add at starting of .htaccess file. If you are a technical person or you have a little knowledge of .htaccess file of your website you can do it or it may stop your site working. So please make sure you are confident.

    Note : before you start optimization if you have technical knowledge of .htaccess, you should try below code at very beginning and see the effect. It should surely become effective for your site.

    Below code will cache all media files with extension : flv|gif|jpg|jpeg|png|ico|swf
    all content files with extension : js|css|pdf|txt
    webpage files : html|htm
    It will never cache files with extension : pl|php|cgi|spl|scgi|fcgi

    # cache images and flash content for one month
    <FilesMatch ".(flv|gif|jpg|jpeg|png|ico|swf)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=2592000"
    # cache text, css, and JavaScript files for one week
    <FilesMatch ".(js|css|pdf|txt)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=604800"
    # cache html and htm files for one day
    <FilesMatch ".(html|htm)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=43200"
    # explicitly disable caching for scripts and other dynamic files
    <FilesMatch "\.(pl|php|cgi|spl|scgi|fcgi)$">
    Header unset Cache-Control
    FileETag none


The above steps are common for the entire website in any language and any technology. Because webpage speed is most important factor for end user and no one will see your site if it’s not easily loaded on user screen. Please follow steps and on every step change check your website speed on or any other speed checker system to see the effect.
