Is Your Website Loading Slowly? Here Are 5 Possible Reasons For That
A website that loads quickly, regardless of the device being used to access it, contributes to your online success in a number of ways which include:

* It prevents impatient visitors from leaving your site because it took too long to load.

* It can help with search engine rankings since Google loves a fast loading website.

* It creates a better user experience, which will contribute to customer loyalty.

* It creates happy customers who are more likely to link to your site or share it via social media.

* It minimizes the possibility that elements of a page do not load at all due to a slow connection.

If you are building a new website or blog, page speed and overall performance should be one of your key priorities.

Either a new website or old one, and you notice your website is taking long to load, below are the 5 possible reasons to have cause it.

1. You are using too much uncompressed images and flashy banners
The first way to reduce the overall size of a webpage is to address the images that are used on that page. On most sites, images account for anywhere from 60% to over 90% of the page’s download weight, so this is likely the reason it is loading slow and also the the best place to start your optimization exercise.

***Is your website image compressed, you dont have too much flashy stuffs and still yet your website load slow - THEN CHECK THE SECOND REASON***

2. Your Site Is Making Too Many Requests
Every resource that a webpage needs to display in the browser requires a trip to the web server to retrieve that file. These requests include the HTML document as well as CSS files, Javascript files, images, fonts, and more.

If your site is making too many requests, the loading speed will absolutely be impacted in a negative way.

One mistake I see on many slow-loading sites is that they rely on an existing website template or theme that does not take performance seriously. They just download a theme or template and use it directly without checking how optimized it is.
In the end, the fewer requests a page makes, the quicker it will load.

***Is your website also free from the second reason above, dont get tired reading - CHECK THE THIRD REASON***

3. Your CMS Is Slowing the Site Down
The Content Management System (CMS) that your site is built upon can also impact performance.

Popular CMS platforms like Wordpress, Drupal and co, use a database to store information for that site, include page templates and content. Every time a page loads, there are calls to that database to retrieve information and display the requested content. If your CMS is not configured properly, these database requests can stifle your site’s loading speed.

Be careful when choosing the CMS to built your website on so you wunt fall in slow loading calamity.

***Seems you are using a good CMS and your site load speed is too bad - READ THE FOURTH REASON before concluding you cant find your own reason here***

4. Your Website Hosting Is Hurting Your Page Speed
On a similar note to CMS configuration is how your hosting account is set up. There are many opportunities for website hosting to impact site speed. If you are using a low cost hosting service, you may have few, if any, options for improvement.

If you are working with a provider who is more hands-on, you should be able to work with them to figure out if any hosting changes could benefit your site's performance.

***Is your hosting server one of the best, and people still complain your website loads slow, then the reason is BELOW***

5. The User Network Connection Is Too Bad
Sometimes the problem with a slow loading website has nothing at all to do with the site itself, but is simply a user issue.

Imagine someone who comes to your site with a mobile device from an area where they have a very poor connection. The site may load slowly, even if you have optimized it in every way possible.

There is very little that you can do in these instances, but if you have optimized the site and considered page speed, slow connection or not, at least the pages will load that much faster. Sometimes, that alone is a big win.

Whenever you receive a feedback that your website load slow, check this list from the first reason to the fourth one, if you are guilty of any - THEN WORK ON IT INSTANTLY!

But if you found out that your website is free from the 1-4 reasons, then you have less to do as the problem is from the users.

For a wapka site, option 3 and 4 is the most common reason!

Wapka is also like a CMS not well managed (Reason 3)

Wapka is a free host which cant match the quality of most paid host (Reason 4)
