How to Make Your Website Faster in China

There’s no denying the role of CDN and local hosting in website optimization, especially if you want to speed it up. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to factors that affect website performance. 

In fact, slow loading websites have been shown to negatively impact a business’ ability to attract leads and most importantly, to convert those leads. 

That’s why we’re sharing the following tips on how to boost website performance, particularly speed, in order to thrive on the Chinese market. Read on to find out more!

  1. Check Website Performance

The first and most important part of website optimization is its performance. That’s why you must monitor it regularly to ensure that it’s working effectively. 

It will play a huge role in boosting your website speed. 

Basically, keeping track of website speed and performance will enable you to determine what aspects of your website are affecting its speed. 

Thereafter, you can determine what the best resolutions are to those problems, but it all starts with first monitoring your website. 

  1. Try to Lower Your Page Size

Page size also plays a role in your website speed, and that ultimately affects your ability to start marketing in China. According to the “Computer Hope” website, page size incorporates everything within the web page, including media, scripts, style sheets, images, and HTML. 

Also, HTTP Archive statistics also show that the average web page is 3.45MB. This is one megabyte over the web page size in 2016 and this growth is due to the addition of larger content, such as fonts, JavaScripts, images, and videos. 

Although these elements are helpful at improving the customer experience, it slows the website’s loading time. 

  1. Fix Response Time

Once you figure out what’s lacking and working with your website’s performance, the next step is to measure server response times. This is the direct way of eliminating bottlenecks that are negatively affecting website speed. 

There are many different factors that might affect server performance, from memory starvation, libraries, slow database queries, and slow application logic.

This means that you must consider all of these different aspects as possible causes of your website’s speed issues. 

  1. Take Advantage of Browser Caching

Next, you need to consider browser caching. That’s because, with every webpage that’s loaded, a process of automatic downloading happens for all of your images, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML files. 

It might take a while to load all of these different files which then affects the speed of the web page, thus leading to a slugging website. 

Browser caching enables you to fix this problem by downloading and storing all of these web files in the user’s local browser so that they don’t have to reload every time they visit the website. 

  1. Minify Resources

You can optimize your website’s pages by reducing the size of media such as JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. 

The minification process requires that you get rid of all unnecessary characters as well, and this includes unused code, code comments, and spaces without affecting the resource’s browser processing. 

The result is that your web pages will load faster and perform more efficiently.
