Does Website Optimization Still Matter?
Even with increasing numbers of broadband users in the U.S. and throughout the world, millions around the world are still using modems with no immediate end in sight. What do all those stats and articles have to do with web design? Page load times still matter and we need to continue to provide optimized sites for our visitors.
Andy King of WebReference fame is writing a new book due out in January packed with tips and ways to optimize your site. Visit the book’s site, Speed Up Your Site: Web Site Optimization where you’ll find more information in the days ahead. And you can pre-order from Amazon.com, too.
Even if you’re fortunate enough to have a high speed connection, as always, find out the target market for the site you’re creating, consider the visitors when you’re developing a site’s design, and build accordingly.
