As mentioned in another blog post, I’ve been working to speed up the AERIALIS Kites website. And now it seems like things are paying off!

In the screen dump above you can see some really bad figures. Let’s just take a look at the Page Speed Score. Very bad indeed, only 39% and F-rated 🙁

So it was clearly about time to start cleaning up the website to make it as fast-loading as possible. Because waiting for a website to load is definitely a drag! I spent a few hours this weekend tweaking and tuning and removing quite a bit of unnecessary stuff under the hood. Yeah, some on the hood as well.

When most of the tuning was done I ran a new analysis on GTMetrix and now something surely had happened!

After the clean up, a major improvement!

I have browsed the AERIALIS Kites website up and down and I can see the loading time surely has decreased. Yes, there are quite a few pages containing “heavy” images, but they load faster as well. And the average load time is down by quite a bit.

Hopefully, you have noticed the faster loading site as well, and if so – or if you by any other reason want to comment – please feel free to state your comments below!
