Site Speed Testing
Site Speed Optimization
Studies have proven that if your site doesn’t load in 3s or less, 53% of mobile site visitors will abandon your website and never return. You're either fast, or you lose! Can your website pass the latest Google Site Speed Test?
Why Is Site Speed
When a customer pulls up to a drive-thru restaurant, they want their food fast! When they are forced to wait, they become unhappy customers who write negative reviews that will likely discourage future patrons. Site speed affects search engine rankings, traffic, and user experience as well.
Website speed, or website performance, is how quickly a browser can display fully functional web pages from a given site. Slow rendering web pages can lead to high bounce rates, cart abandonment, low conversions, and unsubscribers. Conversely, fast-loading websites get more traffic and higher conversion rates.
