    I published my Website already and the most Feedback is, that the Website is slow.
    Maybe because I have much HTML-Tags placed in thier and some big photos.
    So I make my Websites with Adobe muse. Are there ways to make my site faster?

    Hi,

    I have 2 suggestions for you:

    1. Either get a faster server
    2. Use a tool like smush.it to compress your images so that it takes a shorter time for them to load

    It's best to improve your hosting plan. Try VPS hosting if you already hadn't.
    Images are also one big reason to make site loading speed slow. So, it's best to optimize images before uploading them to your site.
    • You can do this by changing the resolution and compressing the picture. Even by cropping the unwanted areas of the picture is good.
    Cut down the external scripts.

    Yes. You have to compress all of your image resolutions and also get some better server if you can.

    - Compress your images and use the right format
    - Cacheing
    - Minify your html/css/js files
    - Use a CDN (Cloudflare is free)
    - Don't use shitty reseller hosting

    That would be a good start.

    If you have big images in your website, that's the first problem. Make them smaller (not too small that it ruins retina) and then optimize them with tinypng.com.

    Use seositecheckup.com to see what other optimizations you can make with your site.

    I know about these tips for cutting your load times:

    Consider implementing a content delivery network (CDN).
    Implement new image formats to reduce the size of your images.
    Cache, cache, cache.
    Evaluate your plugins.
    Combine images into CSS sprites.
    Enable HTTP keep-alive response headers.
    Enable compression.
