Time out or the site loading time

A “good site” should not only be measured in terms of design and demand for information flow, but above all depending on how user-friendly it is. This includes both the quality of navigation bars, and the duration of page loading, and much more.

In fact, the longer the site loading process takes, the more visitors will leave the website losing confidence towards the quality of service provided on the website. Let’s see hereunder what affects the duration of loading and how it may be reduced.

1. Check whether the graphics on your website is optimized. If not, then it is vital to perform this operation with the help of special software. Never use bmp format that keeps images without quality loss, but in files of a threatening size. It is desirable to convert such images into GIF and JPEG. Such operation can be called a partial optimization.

2. Carefully review your site and think over the abundance of graphic elements which have been used. If anything can be replaced by an analogue in the form of a text without any significant loss, do not hesitate to replace it.

3. If online animated pictures are applied on the website, firs of all think if there is indeed sound ground for this. If some of them can be removed be sure to exclude those ones! And do not forget to put yourself in user’s place, because the excessive dynamism sometimes only infuriates and causes a desire to leave the site.

4. Study HTML-code of the document and try to get rid of extra tags. The effect would not be as noticeable as one would like, but in any case it will facilitate the process for reducing the loading duration of the site.

5. It is not advisable to use a great number of Flash-animations on the website as it slows down the site loading greatly. However, in case the use of Flash technology is crucial, do not forget about options such as “stop the animation”, “skip intro”, etc.

6. Never use frames!

7. Try not to utilize Java applications on website pages.

8. Do not use pop-up windows!

9. Do not make pages with too much text, so that is does not take too much time for loading.

Of course these are not all the factors affecting the duration of loading of any site, but the main points have been covered above. Always put yourself in the place of an ordinary visitor and make analysis correspondingly.
