page speed optimization
How important is page speed?
In today’s digital age, page load speed is in top of the list when it comes to good user experience. Many research shows users do not want to wait more than 2-3 seconds for a page to load. Google actually recommends that websites must render the Above The Fold content (i.e. the part of the website users can see without scrolling down) in less than a second on a mobile network. Source: Google
A research done by Google comparing 10 results against 30 results in a search result page showed that less users visited the resulting pages in 30 result page because the 30 results page was loading slower than 10 results page. Several more caste studies have shown slow speed can lose users significantly. Today most online content are consumed on the go, while in a train/tram, while waiting in a coffee queue, etc. Delay by few seconds means lost sales or inquiry.
On top of losing users, you ranking or visibility of your site itself gets affected due to loading speeds. Both organic search and paid search are affected by page speed. Google search ranking algorithm now considers the page speed as one of the ranking factors. In Google ads, the quality score of your ad can be affected by page speed. This means that you may be paying more for your ads because of your slow site. See what Google say here.
Is your website burning your money due to slow load time?
Google measures speed of the site using a metric called page speed score. It has a range of 0 to 100. Google considers the website with score of above 85 as a fast site. If your score is in the 40- 70 mark, then your site definitely has some room for improvement. If you are ranking less than 40 , then we would say you are definitely burning your money and losing your sales because of your slow website.
