9. No more than 6 links per page. Why do some webmasters put up 20 zillion links per page? Often visitors are so confused they leave. Keep it simple and guide visitor logically through your site with a minimal number of links per page. Again, fewer links requires less memory.
META TAGS 10. Limit meta tags to 5 or 6 keywords. Why do some webmasters insist on hundreds of keywords? Apart from slowing download of your page, search engine spiders will see your site as being very diluted and meaning "nothing to no-one."
HOSTING 11. The server speed of your web site host will influence speed of your web site's download. Avoid "Free" hosting. Nothing is truly "free." Free hosts tend to be oversubscribed and lack resources to provide fast and reliable servers.
GOLDEN RULE 12. The golden rule of golden rules...make sure each page of your web site is no bigger than 30kb in size. If you can do this you will be well on way to a fast web site and a fast web site is of course a professional web site.
For outstanding examples of just how good plain old HTML can look, see www.the5k.org The site is no more than 5kb
