Webinar - Web Page Speed Basics

Desktops are dinosaurs. Most users now access the web on low-power mobile devices with sluggish, unreliable connections, and slow-loading pages just make things worse. Slow pages are frustrating for users, who can't access the content, and bad for online publishers, who lose readers.

Everyone benefits when we produce pages that load faster. Fortunately, there are plenty of easy ways to improve page speed that are easily accessible to "ordinary" web content authors like you and me. Regardless of the page type or intent, faster pages are better pages!

You will learn:

  • How to measure and evaluate your page load speed
  • How to know which parts of your page can be improved
  • How to compress text content and optimise graphics
  • How to avoid unnecessary server requests.
