Slow Website Loading Speed Translates to Lost Revenue

One of the most important aspects of a successful website is loading speed. Yes, your content and design elements are crucial, but if your website takes too long to load people will leave before they have a chance to see anything. If your website takes longer than 2 seconds to load, 47% of people will abandon your site. Not only that, but slow loading speeds will negatively affect your SEO ranking.

Adhering to Google’s Algorithm

One of Google’s underlying goals is to provide a database of websites that give users the best experience possible. That’s why Google’s algorithm favors websites that meet a specific criteria.

Since Google is technically a referral search engine, they lose credibility when they refer people to poor sites. The less credibility they have, the less people use their search engine.

There’s a reason that Google’s the #1 search engine in the world. They hold websites to a high standard. Google’s Speed Index is one of the most important parts of performance metrics used to measure user experience. So if you want to be rewarded with higher rankings on Google, you need to adhere to their best practices—especially page loading speed.
