Four Tools To Help You Optimize Your Website

Website speed is nothing to be trifled with. As the average speed of our Internet packages increases globally, so should the speed required by a website in order to load its content.

Studies have shown that a website that loads fast is more likely to increase visitor retention and loyalty. And, when you think about it, it’s only natural that people would prefer not to wait around forever for the website to load so they can access the information they need.

That being said, it’s not always the easiest task to optimize your website’s speed. This is why there are a number of tools and websites dedicated to both assessing and improving your website’s performance. We’ve taken a look at some of the most popular.
