That would depend on the reason the page is loading slowly.

For instance, decreasing the size of images that are already fairly small won't help if the real problem is a poorly configured server.

Identify the reason why your pages are loading more slowly than you'd like and fix that problem (or those problems, as the case may be). Otherwise you could end up wasting a lot of time "fixing" non-existent issues, with no real results to show for your efforts.

Loading time of a website issue may occur for different reason in that the main reason is if your website is developed from the html table code then the code will take more spaces so for this reason your website loading time will be increased so it is better to develop a website by using html div code which consumes less space.

See to that to avoid external resources to your site, reduce the image size and add to your site (customize the images), decrease the number of additionally installed modules or features for your site.

Default Website evaluators.

There are a load of website's that will analyse yours and give you advice. I made a list of them here: http://www.thedocoffice.com/content/...aluation-tools

My favorite is http://website.grader.com/.

Also, Google has a tool, within Webmaster Tools, it is called Pagespeed Insights.

These tools will tell you what you need to fix and give some advice on how to fix.

What sort of software are you using to run your site Wordpress? Drupal? Joomla? other?

I think loading time matter for various factors, like image size, js code, css code. you have to compress images and css for best website loading time.
