Lesser Use of the images: the vital thing to make a web site faster is to minimize the use of images in it. Image may enhance a page but don’t load your web site with full of images. Instead make the site using simple HTML. You can notice the popular sites like yahoo, Amazon, Google, eBay and some others. You will see that they have very few images because the loading time is more important. And for sure simple design is the best.
Optimize your images: when you are decided on the images that you choose for your site make sure that they are optimized for the web. And these images should be in the jpeg or gif format.
