Hour 8. Posting Your Work on the Web > Making Pages Load Faster

Making Pages Load Faster

The bottom line for making Web pages load faster is—you can’t. The page will load only as fast as the server can send it and the recipient can receive it. Those are both factors beyond your control.

What you can do, though, is make sure that your page is arranged so that there’s something to see while your graphics load. Bring up a Welcome headline first, and then add the background. If there’s a graphic that will take some time to load, bring up a block of text before the graphic appears. The load time for the picture will seem much shorter if the person waiting has something else to read or think about. You can make these changes and others using your Web page editor.
