How healthy is your website?
Ever got sick of waiting for a website to load?
By HMS Websites
Every clicked on a website link that you really want to look at, perhaps they have products you’re interested in, or services you want to find out more about?
And then you wait for the page to come up within a couple of second – and it doesn’t. So you wait a little longer, but you’re already frustrated! When it starts to slowly, slowly load the images (but still no text), you get sick of it and lose interest.
And that business has lost a prospective sale.
if your site loads in 5 seconds, it is faster than approximately 25% of the web
if your site loads in 2.9 seconds, it is faster than approximately 50% of the web
if your site loads in 1.7 seconds, it is faster than approximately 75% of the web
if your site loads in 0.8 seconds, it is faster than approximately 94% of the web
Summing it all up your website page speed needs to be as fast as you can make it… without compromising the customer experience. For Google, they aim for the speed of a blink, your website may look for something more like a breath.
When it comes to page speed, there are many factors to your success: the browser, device, web hosting provider and content on the page, which is why you need to focus on your visitor’s needs.
