This may be an unusual request to ask someone to help me with just one small aspect of my website, but I would be willing to pay someone if they could help me figure this out. I'm a novice web designer, having taught myself html and css, but I'm still pretty clueless on a lot of other things. I want to leverage browser caching to increase page speed, but I haven't found many tutorials online that a beginner like me can understand and that really tell me exactly how to do it. I have many images on my website and I want the pages to load faster and I want them to be fast for seo purposes too. It sounds like max-age and and last-modified are good choices, but I'm unclear on this whole thing in general and what the code would look like in my htaccess. I would like to find someone who knows the best way to do this and can provide some explicit help for me. Thanks.

I don't see how a .htaccess file would help to speed up a web page. See the performance loss at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Htaccess#Disadvantages .

Probably more of interest is: http://www.palmerwebmarketing.com/blog/25-...p-your-website/ .

By setting cache headers. I'm afraid those headers are somewhat of a headache for me too. Procrastinating a proper read-up on them, so I'm ill-fitted to give advice. Alas.
