The biggest ephialtes one could have- Google take 30 seconds to display search results!

Quite frightening for all of us or especially those who use Google more.

All of us want the Google to showcase the search results at speed. Well, Google is not the only case, people prefer to get work done on time and in less time. Right?

Google, Facebook, Twitter and other business giants perfectly understand the significance of speed at which website load and show accurate results. That’s the reason these leaders gained ground.

There are a lot of factors that affect the website performance. It is being said that the least amount of memory and processing could bring the winning upshot.

Furthermore, during development, it’s important to adhere to the few guidelines to improve, optimize and boost the web performance.

Are you planning to use ASP.NET MVC for next app development? Here are the tips employing which from the ground up can help you get the app that works at high speed.

1) Caching

App caching implementation accelerate the ASP.NET app performance. When a call is made to database to fetch records, it’s good if cache download and saves the data for future.

When next time the request to retrieve the same records is made, cache immediately provide the same data, instead of making a call to the database again.

2) Image optimization

In page loading, images affect the speed of web page loading because they consumes higher space over website than text. Also, we cannot imagine a web page with no image just to increase the loading speed.

The image optimization would help that compress and resize the image without impacting its quality. This way optimized image enable web page to load faster.

3) Bundling and Minification

The attempt of crafting best web page with excellent designs, images and graphics results into number of CSS files creation that upsurges the web page download time because all the CSS files sent separate request to the server to load.

When all the CSS and JavaScript files are merged, then only one request will be sent to the server.Besides, all the blank spaces between words and lines in CSS and JavaScript can be removed using minification.

4) Make use of AJAX judiciously

High use of Ajax in ASP.NET MVC app development is not recommended. It’s not preferred to use where asynchronously data downloading is instantly needed, while it is advised where more data loading is required.

5) Disable view technique

View state stores state data in a hidden input field inside the generated page and enable state to persist at client side. The view state increase the payload of the page when both served and requested, increase memory allocation to the server, and incur extra expense when serializing or deserializing view state data. It’s good to disable the View State at the control or page level.


The above tips help the developers to accelerate the ASP.NET MVC app performance or fix the performance issues, if any. Improving app performance is not a one day task, while it’s an ongoing process.

If you are planning to hop onto ASP.NET app development, do keep these advice in your mind.
