How to improve Page loading time?
There are many factors that affecting the loading speed of each page on your site.
In the following post, we’ll be covering 5 common practices you can do to improve your page speed.  
1. Image Optimization
There are many image formats available and be sure that you’ve used the right one for your page. Commonly used image formats for web are GIF, PNG and JPEG. Also, remember to compress your images. Uncompressed images will have larger file size which will cause your page to load slower. You can use web compression services like https://tinypng.com/ to compress your images.   

2. Enable Compression
Enable GZIP compression and deflation on your server. These compression methods will reduce the size of your CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Images, and Video files up to 70% without degrading the quality. You’ll need to contact your web host to check whether they are supporting such features. 

3. Leverage Browser Caching
Browser’s cache keep a lot of information such as images, cookies, CSS, HTML pages, JavaScript and most of the time these files do not need a reload every time your repeat visitor visits your site. This is done by adding expires headers for each file type and the browser will keep using the old data until the headers expired.

4. Minify CSS, JavaScript, and HTML
Minification is the process of optimizing your codes in CSS, JavaScript and HTML files by removing unnecessary spaces, comments and formatting.

5. Minimize Redirects
Redirection is the automation method to direct your visitor from one file location to another. Each redirection will take some time to accomplish; therefore having too many redirection will slow down the page load.
