There are several steps to improve your page loading speed. I will go over a few steps that will improve your site's loading time.

Step 1: Tweak your htaccess.
Open the htaccess file in your forum root and add the following below any url rewrite rules you may have from:
Vbulletin 3 or 4 with VBSEO installed
VB4 Forum Classic
VB4 Suite
VB3 by itself

This covers the following Pagespeed Rules.

Leverage browser caching
Specify a cache validator
Enable gzip compression

Make the following changes in your admincp


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

This helps to cache nearly any file type that you may add in your attachment options (if you allow people to upload music files, zip files, rar files etc.. see the list lol)

*some people report login problems, I have posted below what works for me. Be sure to do this step as well to avoid problems!!

Browse to the bottom of this first post for the .htaccess code.

Step 2: Optimize images
There is no more need to do this for vb4 packages unless you wish to do this on other images such as avatars, custom buttons, attachments, gallery uploads etc.

This covers the following PageSpeed Rules:

Optimize Images

If you have access to Visual Studio 2010 (grab the trial edition here which should be compatible with the addon), you can complete this step in just a few clicks using this addon
Image Optimizer - Visual Studio Marketplace

You can also use pnggauntlet which will compress images as well.

This is great to use on new skins/themes and also non animated gifs for Smileys, Signatures, Photo Album & Group Images and Avatars that your forum stores on your server!

Please note that both of these methods produce lossless images, meaning that even though it uses various methods to decrease file size there is absolutely no visual loss in quality of the image.

For non-windows users, I suggest Imageoptim & Trimage

If you have alot of jpeg images, you can compress 10 per day with this jpegmini. Your other options with this tool are to upload jpegs to a jpegmini album which will compress the images for free which you can download soon after! Your other option is to buy the tool for $20, which will enable you to compress a unlimited amount of jpegs, although it won't compress images above 28 MegaPixels.



Optional Step 3: Add CSS Sprites.
Not compatible with VB3

This covers the following PageSpeed Rules:

Combine images using CSS sprites

Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

Optional Step 4: Use a CDN
Below are 3 free CDN's. I can vouch for cloudflare but have yet to try incapsula.

1) Incapsula
2) Cloudflare *Disable the Rocketloader feature to avoid potential issues.

(Optional) Step 5: Make a free Server Optimization request

Now that you've done all of the steps above, there is one final thing left to do if you are using a vps or dedi, tweak the Server! You can go here to request a free tuneup:

Here's one additional trick to help improve your seo btw:
[SEO Enhancement] Replace "reload this page" to the thread title [v1.00]

Enjoy!

Optional (Recommended) Step 7: Lazy load images.

Lazy Load will delay the loading of images outside of viewpoint to make the page load faster. That is, images in the visible part of the web page are only loaded and remaining images are loaded when visitor scrolls down the page, at some times it can even helps to save bandwidth.

Consider linking to us at http://video-game-chat.com/forum to help show your appreciation, since you'll be saving bandwith, reducing the loading time and thus keeping more visitors who visit your site. And impoving seo as google is now factoring in loading times into it's algorithms.

Test your page speed & yslow score's
If you would like to test your website and see what changes need to be made while you follow any part of this guide you can do so at several sites:

GTMetrix
Webpage Test
Pingdom

Here's a new htaccess that I've been testing, it's pretty solid so far. Simply throw in your url rewrite rules (for friendly urls).... this part may confuse people... they are usually located near the top of an existing htaccess file. Example of what rewrite rules look like...


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

Throw that in between the #add your friendly url rewrite rules below. lines and your set! Another identifier is to look to see if the threads, forums, members etc are being affected by any rules in the old .htaccess... if so.. throw that in and you should have no problems.


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.
