Athletes know that the key to success in their arena hinges on performance. Through training and lifestyle choices they literally engineer their bodies to achieve results, fine tuning every aspect of their game. They know that running faster, jumping higher, and throwing farther than their competitor will give them a critical edge.
In a similar way, the performance of the website is one of the most important but often neglected aspects of development. And virtually any website can experience benefits from fine-tuning its performance.
With so many people using a broadband connection, what’s the value of fine tuning the performance of website? Here are four key reasons:
Unfortunately, many prepackaged website tools and templates don’t render optimized code and assets as they attempt one-size-fits-all solutions. This can lead to unnecessary bloat and unacceptable load times.
In reality, when it comes to improving performance, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Rather, it’s a package deal, a combination of:
These all play important roles in the speed of a website or application, particularly when targeting mobile devices.
Of course the fastest site to load is one without graphics, media, or interactivity, but it’s also the least useful. On the flip side, it’s important to understand the impact of each component of the site and properly balance that impact with the quality of end-user experience.
This type of strategic analysis and improvement can dramatically affect the speed of a website, thereby making it more user-friendly, accessible, and search-engine relevant.Post a Comment
