FreeAdsTime Now is on HTTPS and Major Speed Improvement Strategies Have Been Applied

More than a few major improvements have been applied to the site over the last few months. We had the SSL activated for the and it now serves its pages through https protocol. We faced some challenges initially to move everything to https as we have over 2500 subdomains and the website structure had to be changed slightly. Nevertheless, our competent team had this sorted out and the site now has a great performance.

We also tested a CDN (Content Delivery Network) to speed up the pages; however, our expectations were not met and we decided to do a lot of manual improvements. We now have one of the fastest classifieds sites out there and this was measured using Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool.

We’ve noticed an improvement to traffic after these changes and this trend perhaps will continue. Basically, there’s a higher chance for a visitor to stay on a website if it loads under a few seconds. This is the case for almost all our pages right now and this is in parallel with our providing great user experience goal.

As usual, we’ll continue with newer updates and we’ll keep you posted.
