There are different Steps to Increase page load.

Image optimisation to increase site Speed 

Image   are the main key for website because all the impression by images    like “Like a picture is worth rather than one thousand words” . But if you image are bigger in size and  take  time to load  that  will give  you low page loading and site take long time  to load as soon as image load . For this you need to optimise you images according to need and quality. Images  should be in lesser  size so they  load easily  when  web browser  request info from site . You can use  Photoshop and  online tool  to optimise image  Photoshop is better  because we don’t compromise with quality of image in website .

By reducing URL Redirecting 

When  visitor  visit to web browser  then if you page redirecting  visitor need to wait for more time  to see page  because page  load again on redirection  HTTP request cycle to  complete. So by reducing page redirection we can increase web page load speed.

Leverage Browser Caching 

When your site loads in web browser it save some information on local machine like CSS HTMl files to load page easily on next visit for repeated resource. In the  leverage  browser cache you need to define the  expire time for all the downloadable data  instruct  browser for how much  long you want  to save data  so if visitor visit from same resource   can see best  fast page load  because   old resource can be used that  time and no need to download all data again . you can read more about this here Leverage Browser Caching

Server Response Time need to approve 

There  may be  slow server  response  time  due to  slow database quarries  ,Slow routing  or  lack of memory  you need to fix them to increase server speed  .Normal server response time  is  under 200ms.

Enable Compression 

You can use Gzip compression to compress CSS, JS, HTML files that  are larger in size . You do not need to compress  Image files by this  way  because that  may  reduce the  quality of image and  you site will not look good  you can use other tool Photoshop etc  for that  so you can maintain quality of image  accordingly .

Minify   Files  For site CSS JS  and HTML

You need  to  minify  you files  css js html  by removing   unnecessary data  form  files   like  comments , remove spaces   commas and  other unnecessary   characters . By this way you can increase the page load speed easily. Any tool you use like   PageSpeed Insights   which will show you necessary steps for the implementation to increase website speed.

You can use CDN Content Distribution Network
