There are many ways to speed up page loading, use lower resolution images, try to use pure CSS so stay away from tables if possible, and graphical ads can eat up lots of bandwidth... these are just a few

@zaiah: I can't open that link ... ?

a few things that might help ...
1. code: this only helps a little, but reducing spaces and line breaks help save a bit of bandwidth, look at the following examples:
A:
Code: [ Select ]
<html>

<head>

<title>
The site's title
</title>

</head>

<body>
</body>

</html>
  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <title>
  4. The site's title
  5. </title>
  6. </head>
  7. <body>
  8. </body>
  9. </html>

B:
Code: [ Select ]
<html>
<head>
<title>The site's title</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>
  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <title>The site's title</title>
  4. </head>
  5. <body>
  6. </body>
  7. </html>

obviously B will load a little quicker than A, and you will save bandwidth for each person that loads the page.

2: optimizing images.
Images can be saved in quite a few ways, I usually save images "optimized for web" with photoshop, which saves the file as a 256 color GIF, but the GIF palette is optimized so that the quality still remains close to that of a JPG image, now obviously this doesn't work for very colourful images, there you'll still have to use something like a JPG ...

3: CSS
like it has been said, CSS instead of tables and inline styles will help for quicker loading pages.

4: Preloading images.
I have written a tutorial on this here on ozzu ... it has not been approved yet, will look into that ... but basically you can preload images for a second page on the first page already, and thus it will seem as if the second page loads really quickly ...
