How can i optimize my home page to load more faster? It has quite a number of Youtube videos!
If you don't use Firefox, start using Firefox, then repeat the above steps ;)
Also, you might want to look at a lazy-load plugin which will only load the blocks of content that are visible when the page loads - i.e. 'above the fold' - additonal content lower down the page is not loaded until the visitor scrolls down the page.
Here are some quick tips:
- Minimize the number of page requests. Most browsers can only handle two http requests at a time. This is one reason why CSS sprites are a good idea (putting several site images into one).
- Put stylesheets at the top. This will help the page load progressively.
Yahoo and Google are great resources for this type of thing.
