Website optimization is nothing but the increase the speed of the web pages in which the web pages are displayed and downloaded on the client’s web browser. Although the attempts to improve the download and display speeds has been existed since the introduction of the World Wide Web. As the average internet speed is increasing globally, the webmasters and website administrators need to consider the time take for the website to load for the visitor.

Faster websites will increase the visitor retention, user sanctification and loyalty, especially for the users those who are on slow internet connection. Here I am listing some best website optimization tools.

1. Unbounce

Unbounce

Unbounce is developed after experiencing the frustration of trying to get the effective landing pages for their own marketing campaigns. Unbounce is generally used for landing the pages on the website with the easy integration of both Salesforce and Zoho CRM. In Unbounce each landing page is considered as a separate file and it allows to export the data if the CRM integration is failed and it would be nice to be able to change the format of many landing pages.

Pros : 

  • It is very easy to build the landing pages, you can also copy the HTML code directly from your website and the landing pages looks same as others.
  • It is easy to integrate both the Salesforce and Zoho CRM and it has the ability to export the visitor information even if the CRm integration fails.

Cons

  • Here every landing page is a separate file. But, it would be nice to be able to change the format of the landing pages at once and useful when renewing the website. So when you have to 20-30 landing pages then they must be reformatted individually.

2. Optimizely
