Decreasing A Website's Load Time

The main page of your web site should load in 8 seconds or less with a 56K 

According to two recent surveys, conducted by Forrester Research and Gartner
Group, ecommerce sites are losing $1.1 to $1.3 billion in revenue each year due 
customers click- away caused by slow loading sites.

Tips for keeping your load time down:
- Avoid large, slow loading graphics
- Avoid using too many graphics and/or banners
- Avoid using too many animated graphics
- Optimize your graphics
- Avoid using any unnecessary code
- Avoid making your pages too large
- Avoid using too much Java
- Avoid using too many JavaScripts

If a page takes too long to load, your potential customer will not wait.
Ultimately costing you business.
