Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 80.4% of all visits is South Africa. It lies approximately 10410 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Timeslive.co.za page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to South Africa or just closer to the user base.

For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
