Only 7% of the websites tested have a response time lower than 1 second.

Also more than 50% of the websites tested, almost 15k websites, have a response time greater than 5 seconds.

A higher response time translates indirectly in potential customers leaving your website.
How to Improve Your Page Load Speed by 50% in less than 30 Minutes? Here are a few hints which can make a huge difference:
  • minify assets (JS files, CSS files)
  • minify HTML
  • use CSS Image Sprites
  • optimise images
  • use CDN for hosting images and other assets (fonts etc) – inspect latency
  • move JS files at the bottom of your HTML page and CSS files at the top
  • group multiple CSS files and JS files into a single (minified) CSS or JS file if possible
  • eliminate Render-Blocking JavaScript and CSS (Async Javascript)
  • rely on browser caching
  • remove unused widgets, plugins
  • improve server side hardware (DB queries, hardware, etc)
  • more details on increasing rendering speed
As you saw above, there are loads of things you can do to improve your website rendering speed. We also offer a free website speed test.
