Page speed is a basic factor in digital marketing today. It significantly affects:
Shockingly, most sites perform inadequately with regards to page speed, and that has an immediate negative effect on their revenue.
I’ll accept that you’re similar to me and you need to maximize your results, and obviously, your income, isn’t that so? Then how about we begin in making your site quicker than lubed snot! (That is quite a visual, isn’t it?)

Don’t worry — your visitors won’t need to do anything extra because every browser support GZIP and naturally process it for all HTTP requests already.
With browser caching empowered, the components of a website page are saved in your users’ browser so whenever they visit your webpage, or when they visit another page, their browser can stack the page without sending another HTTP request to the server for any of the cached elements.
When the first page has been loaded and its elements are stored in the user’s cache, just new components should be downloaded on resulting pages. This can radically diminish the quantity of files that should be downloaded during a typical browsing session.
