Why is page speed important?

There are many factors to your website’s search engine optimization (SEO). One of them is how fast your page loads. Your website should load in a couple of seconds. So what can slow down your site? There are a number of things that can effect this:

  1. Your Host
  2. Page Size
  3. Image Size
  4. External Scripts or Ads
  5. Plugins

The other critical factor is losing potential customers. People are not patient and will leave a site if it take longer than 3 seconds to load. Here are a couple of facts:

  • 73% of mobile internet users say that they’ve encountered a website that was too slow to load.
  • 51% of mobile internet users say that they’ve encountered a website that crashed, froze, or received an error.
  • 38% of mobile internet users say that they’ve encountered a website that wasn’t available.
