businesses, corporates, and bloggers. You know
the reason well that Google gives priority to
such sites in their rankings when users search

to certain limits. You may adopt minimal web
design, compress image and video files, and host
your site with the best service provider to
accelerate your site.

But let me tell you that doing just these things
just wont get you a website with fast load
time. You need to implement other strategies as
well to achieve the goal. The one I want to
point out here is optimizing your CSS files.
Yes, you heard that right! If you will start
optimizing your CSS files from the next moment,
soon you will notice performance enhancement in
your WordPress website. And be clear, that Im
not only talking about just reducing the file
size of your CSS stylesheet but other things as
well. So, the question is what you need to do
additionally? What will make your website a fast
runner? We will put light on everything one by
one in the next section of this blog. But before
we jump into the best CSS optimization tips, I
would like to say a few words about our web

now lets turn to the top CSS optimization tips
to improve the load time of your site. Top 5
CSS Optimization Tips To Boost Your Site
Speed 1. Find Performance Constraint As occurs
in all types of troubleshooting, the first thing
you need to do is check out if your website is
running into some sort of issue. Fortunately,
there are several CSS diagnostic tools available
today to do this task. However, one tool that
you can easily access is DevTools or developer
tools in your web browser. Using this tool you
can check how fast your
3
  • website components load. Lets say you are using
    FireFox DevTools, there you can click on the
    Network tab to check the loading time and size of
    all the CSS files your web page includes. In
    addition to that you can also check other things
    such as how fast your website opens when caching
    is enabled and disabled.
  • In case the time taken by your site to load is
    more than 3 seconds, you urgently need to bring
    it down to 3 seconds. To help you out with
    website optimization, our Los Angeles web design
    company is fully ready to listen to your
    concern.
  • Compress All Your CSS Files
  • There are multiple websites running over the web
    that contain CSS files yours would be including
    as well and thats why you are here. While
    loading all the CSS files at a time your website
    may consume too much time, so you can minify or
    compress them to get better speed.
  • A tool that we would recommend is CSS Minify that
    reduces the size of your CSS files and gives
    your site speed a big boost. Though using this
    tool for large websites may take too much time,
    it is perfect for the websites that are not that
    large in size.
  • In case you want to know what other tools you can
    use to reduce the size of your CSS files, have a
    word with our Los Angeles web design company to
    know the alternatives.
  • Implement Flexbox and CSS Grid Techniques
  • If you have still not started using modern
    modules to write CSS and relying on the
    conventional box model, you need to reconsider
    your actions. The reason why Im saying this is
    because using newer layouts such as flexbox

4
  • and CSS Grid allows you to create and publish the
    complex layouts without too much coding.
  • Another reason is that the older methods need you
    to apply various tricks to do smaller tasks such
    as vertically putting the items in the center.
    However, you wont need to do this when you are
    working with modern modules like flexbox and CSS
    Grid.
  • If you would like to know about how using CSS
    Flexible Box Layout Module on your specific
    website will help improve its performance,
    contact our Los Angeles web design company now.
  • Replace the _at_import rules with ltlinkgt tag
  • Two effective techniques you can use to allow
    your site to easily load CSS files
  • Use ltlinkgt tag to add the CSS files to ltheadgt
    section on the HTML page
  • Fetch CSS files from other stylesheets applying
    the _at_import rule
  • Keep in mind that you will have to add the
    _at_import rule to the main CSS file to help your
    site easily load them. Mostly it is used for
    loading small components on your website but you
    can also use it for bigger ones. After you have
    implemented this, you will see good results in
    the initial stages. But the truth is web
    browsers take more time to load the additional
    stylesheets when compared to other processes such
    as HTML page loading CSS files using ltlinkgt
    tags.
  • Replace The Images With Gradients

5
Images can slow down the loading speed of
websites if they are of high quality or greater
file size. To deal with this issue you can
optimize your images using image compression
tools like TinyJPG. Reducing the size of your
images will prove to be beneficial for your
website and you will see significant improvement
in its load time. Alternatively, you can also
use some CSS effects instead of bigger JPG
images to reduce the weight of your site.
Remember if you create a nice gradient
background implementing proper rules, the chances
are it will load faster than many of your
images. Final Thoughts On The Best CSS
Optimization Tips There are many other CSS
customization tips as well to boost your site
speed but what you just read are the most
important ones. Some of them can be easy to
implement while other a bit difficult, but the
main point is they help you to have a
fast-loading website at the end of the day. Bear
in mind that boosting the load time of your
website will not only improve your users
experience but also help you gain top positions
in the search engine rankings. So, start
optimizing your website today using the tips
outlined above and you will see improvement in
your traffic, leads, and conversion very
