Want to improve your page load times on your Joomla site?
Check to see if you have your Joomla cache on. Go to your Joomla admin area:
Global Config > System then check the “Yes” box.
Joomla will make a static page out of your contents. Then when a user access’s your site Joomla will serve up the static page instead of polling the database, thus saving precious milliseconds from your users experience.
Every little bit counts.
