Why Less is More For Your Dental Website
When it comes to dental websites, less is more. Excessive plugins, scripts, images, fonts, and HTML elements can slow down your website’s loading time and hinder user experience. We believe in simplicity and efficiency, ensuring that every element on your website serves a purpose and contributes to its fast performance.
Instead of simply hoping you’ll take our word for it, we wanted to prove our websites are the fastest around. Check out the results of a study we conducted comparing our website speeds to those of dental competitors. You’ll see that our websites outpace competitors with lightning speed.
Elements That Slow Down Your Website
Excessive Plugins or Code: Each additional plugin or custom code adds more data that needs to be loaded before the end user can see the page
Externally Loaded Code (widgets, fonts, virtual consults, etc.): Externally loaded code relies on the external source to completely load before your website can appear. This can drastically slow down your site depending on how slow the external source is.
Uncompressed or Improperly Sized Images: This can lead to images that are 90% too big in some cases and are detrimental to fast websites.
Tracking Codes: Tracking codes are similar to externally loaded content. They rely on the code to be fully loaded from their external source before your website can load.
Each of these elements, when not managed properly, can add unnecessary weight to your website and result in slower loading times. If your page takes longer than two seconds to load, your visitors have a 29% higher chance of leaving! By minimizing these elements and optimizing their usage, we ensure that your dental website loads quickly and efficiently.
