website speed
Have you ever been to a slow site and it felt like it took hours to load? You look down at your computer clock and really only 30 seconds have gone by. That is how quickly you can lose a potential client. We have become a very impatient world. We want everything and we want it NOW.
But that is just the user experience on a slow site. The real question is “Does your website speed effect your ranking?”. Will your slightly slower site be penalized by Google and other search engines when you clients are even looking for you?
In this easy to understand graphic, we see that 1 second makes all the difference in the world. And after just 6 short weeks of poor load times, your site can lose 75% of it’s traffic to that page.
The very first thing that I suggest that you do is to check the speed of your site HERE.
If you have a low ranking you might want to follow some of the Google Guidelines to pre-load your most popular pages to increase your site’s overall performance.
We want to know your results!
Let us know more about your site. How is your website was loading?

    Not only does it impact ranking, but it'll impact people like me who are so impatient that they won't wait 5 or 10 seconds for a page to load.

    ESPECIALLY if I'm using my smartphone. If it doesn't load within 5 seconds, see ya later webpage. I'm very, very impatient and I bet I'm not alone.

    +Robert Lewis, you are SO right. Gone are the days where you had a minute to make the first impression. Now it is down to seconds.

    Wow ~ That makes me feel sad for people that are in that much of a rush, they must miss lots of good things in life. Most things worthwhile are worth waiting for.

    Hi,
    From my experience, pagespeed does matter. When I switched to an seoptimized blog template, my traffic increased by 100%

  • Anton

    i think there is one more problem to gain speed, depending on the quality of the internet where users live.

  • AlyciaWicker

    I have to say since I moved hosting companies, my traffic increased and I thought it was a fluke! And I tried to use Google’s tools, but for me anytime Google has instructions it seems like I’m reading Greek.
