What’s Slowing Down Your Mobile Web Site?

Your website could be a visually-stunning conversion machine, but its appearance and functionality won’t matter much if it takes too long to load. That’s because web users are increasingly impatient and their impatience is likely to continue to grow as tablet and mobile web usage skyrockets.

Here we have discussed some reasons of slowing down your mobile website:-
1.A website is a series of files of various sizes that a website visitor needs to download in their web browser, in order to render your website on their screen. How big the files are that is the size of files and how many files the number of files will directly affect loading speeds. So depending on the nature of one’s website, one can take advantage of different technologies and techniques to compress and prime one’s website files to be transmitted more efficiently.

2.Full Page Caching can have a major impact, as can optimizing images and other rich media to be more web friendly. Other tasks, like minifying CSS files and JavaScript files may offer more minor improvements, and may make it harder to continue to customize one’s website.

3. SQL Query: If your web application isn’t blazing fast, there’s a decent chance that the problem might be a SQL query. From less-than-efficient joins to selects that involve large numbers of rows and no indexes, there are plenty of ways to poorly implement an SQL query.

4. One’s website is hosted on a server, whether shared, dedicated, or otherwise. Like all computers, operating speeds will vary based upon hardware, hosting software, and other factors. Make sure that one’s host is aware of one;s speed goals, and engage them to help meet them. Depending on one’s particular needs, one’s host may be able to deploy speedier hardware, like Solid State Hard Drives, software like NGINX, and better caching systems like Varnish and Memcached. Having a properly optimized and configured database can be a crucial factor for modern websites that utilize software like Magento or WordPress. They can also recommend add-ons, like a Content Delivery Network (CDN), which will load copies of website files on primed servers around the globe to help distribute the processing load, and let website visitors load some files from a server that’s closer to them, cutting down on data transmission times.What’s most important is that one must select a host with the right capabilities, that specializes in using these kinds of technologies to one’s benefit, and assisting one through speed optimization on the server side

5. Serving up efficient HTML is just as important as serving up efficient CSS. Unfortunately, crappy CSS is easily found on many sites. From the use of insanely expensive descendant selectors to cutting-edge CSS3 selectors that are as performance-harming as they are useful, there are plenty of ways one’s CSS can be slowing one’s pages down.

6. Ad network code: Ad revenue may be a boon for your bottom line, but ad network code, most of which is JavaScript-based, can make one’s pages slower. Some networks have implemented asynchronous delivery methods, which keep their JavaScripts from resource blocking, but many publishers still don’t use these.

7. JavaScript-based functionality: JavaScript may be a necessary evil, particularly when it comes to ads and analytics. But plenty of sites employ JavaScript to provide functionality that is more efficiently provided server-side. One of the best examples: many sites use Disqus and Facebook for commenting, which is arguably the least efficient way of providing this basic functionality.

8. A website is the sum total of many elements. The more that needs to process and load when a visitor navigates to one’s website, the longer it’s going to take to load. Simplicity can help significantly. Whether one is using too many extensions/plugins, too many banners and images, or other elements in excess, the net result will be the same – slower loading times.

There are things that can be done to speed up a site that, depending on one’s potential for return on investment (ROI), may be cost prohibitive. It’s just a matter of investment. Think of it like squeezing more horsepower out of a car. We’d all love to have the performance of a race car, but we’re not all open to having our own pit crew on our payrolls. It’s important to make decisions on what we’re willing to invest into speed optimization, and then decide how one want to focus those resources. Always re-evaluate the loading speed optimization as one’s website changes, and their occur changes in technologies. Upon reviewing, one may find that it’s time for a tune up. Most cases, until one’s website has been designed and developed, and all of the working pieces are in place, it’s not possible to fully optimize for loading speeds by compressing and minifying various files.

9. Some more factors in slowing down one’s site.

* Old versions of server-side software
* Poorly-written server side code
* The wrong web server
* Public networks for private data transfer
* Inefficient server-side caching
* Forgetting to Gzip it up
* Header fail
* Shared web hosts

10. Testing the speed of website: There are great tools to test one’s page speed that will report on factors that have room for improvement, such as those from Google PageSpeed Insights, GTMetrix, Monitis, and Pingdom, but remember that some items that these tests report are slowing down are having minimal results, and others have bigger impacts.

Thank-you hope these points will help you know where your website is lacking to give you optimized speed.
