How can I make my pages load faster?

Define Your Images

Troubled by slow-loading pages? Here's a tip that will give the appearance of faster loading pages. Define the height and width of the images on your webpage, like this:

< IMG SRC="mypic.gif" HEIGHT="120" WIDTH="60" >

By doing this, you create a placeholder for the image which allows the browser to continue loading the page's text before the image has been completely downloaded. The appearance of the text gives the illusion that the page is loading faster, and that makes a difference to your users.
