The website flaws you should eliminate is those things on your blog that could put people off when they arrive at your website. The most important ones are the things that cause your blog pages to load slowly. This means you need to eliminate your paged load times. The first problem that visitors would notice is a slow page load time. You would want to keep your page load times to a minimum of 3 to 5 seconds.

 
The first thing you will want to do now is to analyze your site’s speed. You can use GTmetrix, a tool that gives you insight on how well your site loads and provides actionable recommendations on how to optimize it.

 
While writing this post, I did an analysis of The Money Blog‘s home page (i.e. www.MMO.ng) and got the result shown below.

As you can see from the result, PageSpeed Score is 94%, YSlow Score is 80% and Page Load Time is 4.6s. This is not the best result but it works well for visitors who comes to this blog from search engines via desktop and mobile devices. If you can decrease your page load times from what it is to about 2-seconds page load, you are sure to have a whopping 30-50 percent increase in search traffic conversions.

 
How Do You Reduce Page Load Times?

The first step to take is to see the recommendations provided on the GTMetix result page. You are to do one after the other in order to reduce your website/blog load times. The recommended steps are in different categories. Please note, not every recommendation will apply to your page. The recommendations are meant to be best practices. However, some of the solutions will be out of your control or may not apply to your page. So, you need to know exactly what you are doing.
