Page Speed Optimisation

This month we moved all our Good Websites hosted domains/websites to a brand new hosting server and enabled Page Speed Optimisation for even faster download speed.

Page Speed Optimization

Page Speed Optimization is a tool that reduces website loading times by automatically optimising web pages and resources on them. It is an apache module, mod_pagespeed, from Google.

It does several things to improve the page speed. For example, it minimizes the CSS files, drops all the comments and unnecessary white spaces from your HTML/PHP pages and it reduces the size of images by stripping metadata among other things.

  • faster download/optimised websites getting more important with increase the use of tablets and smartphones
  • page speed is an important ranking factor for the Google searches.  A better optimised page will help deliver better rankings.
