In general you should:

  • Keep everything light in terms of size – files scripts etc
  • Preload as much as possible – and minimise and combine scripts etc
  • Use a CDN
  • Avoid movement on the page, especially movement of the entire page itself (shift)
  • No banner sliders

For the more tech savvy:

  • Enable compression
  • Minify and combine CSS, JavaScript, and HTML
  • Minimize HTTP requests
  • Reduce redirects
  • Remove render-blocking JavaScript
  • Leverage browser caching
  • Improve server response time
  • Optimize images
  • Use asynchronous loading for CSS and JavaScript files
  • Defer JavaScript loading
  • Prioritize above-the-fold content (lazy loading)
  • Minimise the number of plugins you use on your site
