    Firstly I must commend your new blog design, You did the right thing by moving away from blogger.

    I have my personal take on blogger, 0% love for and %40 hatred for pro-guys who still uses it, there are few stigma attached with it when looked from a pro angle.

    I knew ’twas your courage that motivated your move, my take on the topic is that your tips are awesome and already implemented on my tech blog.

    Thanks for sharing and also do have a great week ahead of you

    Hi Nosa,

    Thanks for sharing some of the most important points to speed up blogs. Increasing the page load time as well as page response time is gaining importance as Google has also decided to consider it in its search algorithms.

    All the points mentioned in your post are quite important but I would like to suggest that using W3 Total Cache is also a great way to increase the blog page spee. It may be a little tricky to configure but if you follow step by step instructions then it is simply fun. In fact, I have activated it on my blog and you can see yourself the speed of my blog.

    Thanks for sharing your insights about page speed.

      Hi Aushutosh,

      You are absolutely correct. Google has made page load time an important factor in search ranking. This means that with contents being great and fantastic knowledge of SEO, once could still suffer in search ranking due to poor load time.

      I haven’t tried W3 Total Cache, but your blog loads very fast. That can only mean one thing; that W3 Total Cache reviews are genuine.

      Thank you for visiting friend 🙂

    Yes it is quite effective, although I had to work a bit hard to configure it properly but it has given a good page speed to my blog.

    Hello, i have installed the plugin W3TC but still my blog loads lately. It takes a lot of time. I do not like this and hopefully my readers who are form the part of the world where internet speed is an issue will also not like it. Can you please have a look at my blog and suggest me how can i make it load quickly? I have read all your points. I am not sure which one will work for me. I really want to know.

      Hello Saha,

      I have just gone through your blog and the load time isn’t that great. I would like to know how many plugins you have installed. And did you allow Plugin Performance Profiler scan your plugins? If yes, I would like to know the impart percentage of all your plugins on your blog.

      Floating social icons have also be reported to case slow load time. You can also search if you have an alternative that suits you.

      It doesn’t have to float. Anyone who is interested in sharing your post will do so, you don’t have to force it on people.

      Hope to hear from you soon. 🙂

    THANK YOU so much for this article. I NEEDED this, my site th=ook about 10 seconds to load everytime. After reading this I cut it down to like 3 secs. THANKS AGAIN.

      Hello Kelvin,

      At 7 Seconds? That’s pretty lovely. You miss out in search ranking if your blog loads after 10, seconds. Before moving to WordPress, my blog took as much as 8 seconds and that was because I added tons of JavaScript.

      Now, this WordPress blog sits comfortably at a little above 4 seconds,

      Have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you some other time.

    Is there any ways to increase speed in blogger blog,my blog’s average loading time is 7.68 seconds,how can I reduce that to something like 3-4 seconds?

    1. 13.1

      Nosa E Nosa

      Hello Kapil,

      It depends on amount of Javascript you have running on your blog. Cutting down on the amount and replacing Javascript functions with HTML code if appropriate can really help.

    My blog seems to be loading bit slow when compared to previous days and found your article. Hope it may help me. I have some question for you off the topic. Does server location is responsible for traffic locations? LIke hosting site in INDIA doesn’t get more traffic from US?
    Thanks for these tips and I think these surely help me.

    1. 15.1

      Nosa E Nosa

      Hello Tharun,

      Absolutely not. Your server location doesn’t control your traffic location. What causes traffic location is your content and keyword. If I start talking much about India. and targeting that region with keywords, I will surely get traffic from India, the social networks like FB groups and pages you share your contents, also influences the location of traffic.

      Basically, a site hosted in India and talking about PlayStation and Xbox One will surely get traffic from US..

      You get the drill? If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to ask pal.

      Do have a nice day friend. 🙂
