The major causes of slow loading of mobile web pages include:
A web server (i.e. the software) that is slow by default, or has not been properly configured for maximizing speed.
A mobile website that is hosted on a relatively slow web hosting solution (or hardware), or has extremely high web traffic which is often heavier than the web hosting can handle.
A mobile website that has not been configured to use web browser caching.
A mobile web page that requires downloading resources which added up to excessive file size.
Some intentional and unintentional setups such as redirects, bad requests, etc may considerably slow down page load.
A mobile website serving users of a very large country (or across large geographical locations, such as China) and with extremely high web traffic but is not using a content delivery network.
A slow network connection between your web server and the user (i.e. the web browser) requesting your mobile web page.
You will not be able to solve all the causes, but you can apply techniques to optimize the speed of your mobile website. The optimization techniques may include:
When we associate each technique to the causes:
|Slow web server software||Optimize web server software|
