There are a number of things one can do to make their website load faster, such as:

  • Compressing your Javascript
  • Remove any duplicate scripts from your website files.
  • Optimise your Images - PNG’s are widely known to be the optimal format for most websites.
  • Make your favicon.ico very small and cacheable.
  • Add stylesheets to the document HEAD makes pages load faster.

If you are running a wordpress site, the easiest thing to do is use a caching plugin, quick and easy.

 

If not i would suggest making use of the developer panel in your browser to check load times (inspect element) or using any online tools.
