Even though the Magento platform is feature intensive, with all its imbalanced features it has a few setbacks as well; it can get annoyingly slow at time. We have a few tweaks which can be performed to speed up your Magento platform, such as:
- Employ full page caching using varnish or other modules
- Use mod_pagespeed
- Images should be served by CDN
- Use Magento optimized hosting services for faster response
- If you have recently migrated from an old platform to Magento, remember to optimize your redirects in the .htaccess file
However minor, page speed is a ranking factor for your website, which should only be worried upon if your website is performing extremely slow. Apart from the above mentioned techniques, there are other advanced SEO techniques also, which our Magento SEO team is well versed at.
