This article lists possible reasons your website might load slowly and what you can try speed up your website’s response time.

Response measurements may be slow because:

  • The checkpoint is too far away from the web server
  • The HTML output of the page is very large

Building and serving the website (the processes necessary for your page to load) may be slow due to:

  • The database
  • Inefficient database lookups
  • A lot of “heavy” data processing when generating the  HTML output for the site

What could make my website load faster?

  • Change the server location checkpoint. Note: If the slowness still persists then it may be an actual problem and not a measuring problem.
  • Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)
  • Use compression on the web server
  • Optimize the HTML output
  • Change the website to load dynamically (as needed)
