Basic Website FAQ
Page requests are how many times an element of a website is requested from the server. This could be a page, an image or some information that tells the browser how style up the fonts etc. The smaller the number the page requests. The less times the information has to be asked and so the site loads slightly quicker. A well designed website will minimize these by chunking a bunch of requests together at the same time through compression.
Page redirects are a way of telling visitors to a site and search engines that a page that used to exist in an old location has moved to a different location. This is useful because web pages build up SEO equity over time. If a website gets recreated with different page names, this tells the search engines to transfer that equity to a new page.
Browser caching is a way of telling browsers to keep copies of static files stored locally in their cache/storage. So they don’t have to re-download those elements each time. This increases website load speed.
