h2>Don’t make visitors wait for your Web site to load.

If visitors to your Web site have to wait 30 seconds or more for it to come up on their browsers, you could be losing up to half of them. With content delivery networks and more optimization techniques, a number of Web sites have improved their load times. It’s not surprising that these sites rate higher on visitors’ lists and tend to be more successful. Optimizing your site’s load time, or reducing the total amount of time it takes for your home page to display to visits can greatly improve your ability to keep visitors on your site.
