Don’t Make This Mistake With Your Website

There is a website that I have visited a number of times. I won’t tell you which one, but it has content that I’m interested in. I don’t like visiting that website.


Each piece of content includes a video on automatic play. It takes a long time for each video to load. Even though the content is also in text form, the page takes so long to load that I can’t get to it.

We want our blog or website to be the best. There are all sorts of features we can add to it.

But if the features slow your site down so much that people want to leave, you have missed the point. We need to balance features with load time.

Visit your own website and try to imagine how a visitor would feel in waiting. If it takes too long, try stripping some of the features.
