Why Page Speed Matters and How You Can Improve It
Page speed on your site is defined as the amount of time it takes for your browser to receive a web server’s first byte. One common misconception we see is page speed and site speed being used as interchangeable terms. Site speed is actually the average of sample several pages on a website.
Why Should You Care
The people expect nothing less than your best, and that means going that extra mile to make sure consumers get the helpful and friction-less experience that they want. At the end of the day, faster pages are much more efficient. If your pages are taking more than 3 seconds to load, over 25% of users will click out of your site. According to Google, for every one second delay in page load time, conversions can fall up to 20 percent. This means you are missing out on a large percentage of potential leads, sales, or any other conversion metric.
What’s Slowing You Down
Every page is different and there can always be a variety of areas that need improvement, however there are a few common culprits:
- Heavy Page Image: Optimizing images will allow the pages on your website to receive bytes faster, and this makes your page more efficient with a faster load time.
- Plug-Ins: Enabling caching with a plug-in allows pages on your site significantly faster. This saves you copies of pages with the same request, which allows your server load in a much more efficient manner.
