What is Website speed and why is it so important ?
Website speed or site loading time is how fast your website or web page loads for the user in their browser. A website speed test will show how quickly users are able to see and interact with content on your site.
Faster sites create happy users
Why is it important? Well if visitors to your site are waiting more than a few seconds for your content to load, then your users are off to a frustrating start. Loading time is one of the biggest reasons users abandon your web page. The average visitor has no patience for slow loading pages, especially on mobile. According to Kissmetrics, 47% of consumers expect a page to load in two seconds or less. Kissmetrics analytics say that 40% of consumers will abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load.
People like fast-loading sites, Google says, so slow ones will have a harder time with prominence in search results.
Google take web page speed very seriously when ranking websites. According to Google “page load time” (the time it takes to fully display the content on a specific page) is a very important factor when they rank websites through their algorithm. It is well known fact that Google gives fast-loading web pages preferential placement in search results AND particularly slow websites will be penalised in search results.
Bottom line is: slow website = fewer visitors = losing business from potential clients you work hard to acquire.
Many people will not even consider page speed when they are building their website. It is totally understandable in the rush to “get online” that the focus is on design, launching the site, filling it with good content and marketing the site rather than how fast it loads on desktop, tablet or mobile. It is essential you pay attention on a regular basis to the performance of the site, how fast it loads because over time by adding content, images, adding plugins, updating the site etc will slow down your website considerably.
Where do I start?
First off, we recommend you conduct a WordPress speed test with a tool that accurately measures how long it takes a website to load fully.
What’s the optimal load time that you should be aiming for…? Well, the faster the better, but most experts suggest that around three seconds is a good target.
If your site shows up poor in the speed test, then it’s time to take action asap. If you don’t do something, it will end up costing you a lot. Losing potential clients is losing money. This is not what you want. You work hard enough to make your business the best it can be and your website when it’s performing correctly, should be a lead generator for your business. If it’s not generating leads than it’s as useful as a glass hammer.
If you are really busy, then great, let us do the hard work and take the head scratching away from you. Give us your website url and we can perform all the tests to determine how good your website performs. After analysing the results we can recommend how to move forward with a series of tasks which will improve your website performance and speed.
We will guarantee we can speed up your site and increase your visitor stats. As well as optimising performance we carry out regular speed tests to make sure your site keeps on running quickly and smoothly and you can get back to do what you do best, running your business.
