Loading speed

You know what's frustrating?

Waiting a long time for a page's content to load when every other website loads in under a second.

That's annoying, right?

Ok, so...

What's making my website so slow?

The main things slowing down your websites are unoptimized and unneeded images, videos, and scripts.

That means you should remove every script and media that doesn't improve your visitors' experience. Yes, that includes that very original stock picture of 3 smiling men in suits you have on your homepage.

For the rest, there's a long list of things you should do, starting with:

  • Resizing and optimizing images and videos
  • Minifying your Javascript, HTML and CSS
  • Enabling cache and gzip on your web server

Doing this will rank you above a majority of websites when it comes to loading speeds.

Depending on your website, there might be more optimizations required afterwards, but those are the basics.

Got it! So...

How can I test my website's loading speed?

Most people use tools like PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom or GTMetrix to test their website's loading speed.

These tools are great, but they all have one major flaw: you have to test each page, one at a time.

Koalati brings performance testing to your entire website. Simply enter your website's URL, and let our automated tools do the rest.

Our platform's loading speed test runs Google Lighthouse on every page of your website. Then, it groups the recommendations for every page and sorts them by priority, so it's easy for you to see the things that matter.
