Loading time of a blog is really an important factor in SEO’s prospective. Every webmaster should care for his/her blog’s loading time because now a day’s major search engines consider load time as a ranking factor specially Google. Beside this, visitors also don’t like such sites that take too much time to load. They will surely press back button and go to another place for the information they are searching for. It will also increase bounce rate that affects your blog ranking. So, Today I decided to share my own way on how to reduce load time in Blogger Blog. Below are some very important tips that you can use to optimize your blog load speed.

Tips To Reduce Blog Load Time

Avoid JavaScript
JavaScript makes page loading speed slow. Try to remove unnecessary JavaScript codes from your blog. Don’t link to external sites for storing your JavaScript codes whilst you can save them inside your blogger blog. You can save your all JavaScript codes in your template above by using the code below,

<script type=’text/javascript’>
Paste Your JavaScript Code Here

Just replace the bolded text with the JavaScript code you want to store in your template.

Widgets and Social Media Buttons

Widgets and social media buttons are really very important but use of too many social media buttons and unnecessary widgets can slower your blog. Try to remove widgets that are not really necessary for your blog and use social media buttons wisely.

Give Proper Dimensions To Images

Always give proper height and width to the images you are using in your posts, because it help the browsers to load the image quickly. To give height and width attribute to your images use below code.

<img width=”" height=”" src=”URL Of Image” />

Don’t Use An Image As A Background

If your blog template have image as a background, then remove it. A background image is responsible for slow loading speed. Always use background colors not an image. To remove background image simply search below code and remove it from your template.

The code will surely be different in your template. To remove background image, search this type of code in your template and simply remove the text which looks like the bold text.
