13 Ten Ways to Optimise Your Website – Part 2

Play

We conclude the “10 Ways to Optimise your Website and Boost Conversion”. This episode focuses on often overlooked things like optimising the size of images, configuring javascript  so it loads asynchronously and the concept of “keep alive”,  a setting allowing your webserver to keep a connection to the browser open.

There’s in-depth coverage of the importance of Monitoring which in true Kaizen style, is the essence of Continuous Improvement. We also cover how the proper use of DNS and Content Distribution Networks allows websites to distribute content through points of presence globally.

Lastly, whilst your users and customers may be located in specific geographical location, remember your website is being accessed from anywhere on the globe through web crawlers and search engine spiders, confirming  the need for speed for your website to rank higher.  

It was a pleasure to have Kyle York of Dyn DNS and Andy Piggott of Incutio as our guests for these past 2 episodes and hope you’ve picked a few gold nuggets for your website optimisation efforts.
