How to Improve Your Website Loading Speed

A large percentage of us spend a lot of time on our computer trying to do one thing or the other on the internet; our reason for staying longer on the internet varies. Some people stay longer online because their work requires them to do so while others are forced to stay longer due to their internet connection being uncooperative. I once had a problem with my internet connection that for the space of 3 hours, I was unable to do anything realistic, below are some things I did that I hope doing the same will help you improve your website loading times.

Disable Software’s You Presently Don’t Need

When I experienced a problem with my internet connection trying to make internet browsing uncomfortable for me the first thing I did was disable unnecessary software’s. If a software is presently of no use to you and is affecting your internet browsing you should make sure you disable it; software’s like this include desktop applications and widgets, anti-virus updates, Forex applications, Instant messages and chat tools and any other software you think might have an effect on your internet browsing. A rule of the thumb is to remove any software you think is not useful on your computer (please don’t remove your anti-virus).

Remove Add-ons You Don’t Presently Need

The next thing to do if your problem persists after disabling unnecessary software’s is to remove add-ons you don’t presently need from your browser. A lot of internet browsing problems we face online have to do with our browsers, and, many people are fond of loading their browsers with add-ons they have little to no need of. Once you’re able to free up your browser by removing all the unnecessary add-ons you should notice a drastic decrease in the time it takes your browser to load a web page.

Clear Your Private Data

Another problem you have to eliminate is the information your browser stores on your computer. A large percentage of the information stored on your computer is in the form of cookies, cache and some other data you will have no need of in the future so there is no point in letting them remain. Once you’ve cleared your private data you should also restart your computer and you’ll be amazed at how improved your internet browsing speed will be.

PS: You should note that clearing your private data will ensure your browser no longer auto remember your previous details.

Free Up Your Computer

If after doing the above things your problem persist or if your internet speed is initially high but as soon as you browse for some minutes/ hours you start to notice a drastic decrease in the speed you get, there is every probability your computer is responsible for this.

In cases like this it is likely your RAM is being overworked and the only way to overcome this problem is by freeing up your computer system. Make sure your desktop is not loaded with application icons or folders but is as free as possible. Also make sure your system is not one with a 10% free memory but as high as 50% free memory.
