Google ranks fast websites higher, and slow websites lower. While website speed is not the only ranking factor, it’s an easy one to get right.
Of course, it’s not just Google who ranks slow websites poorly. Your website visitors will, too. If you site is slow to load, most people will give up and go away, even before reading a single word. Studies have shown that you have 8 seconds to catch a visitor’s attention, so if your page is still loading, you might as well give up.
How fast is your website? We include a Site Speed Audit in our whole site audit report, so it’s not hard to find out how your site will perform, in speed and plenty of other key areas, too.
Another aspect to good Google ranking is security, and there are 3 aspects to that:
Finding a clean and optimized shared server, or host, is important for having blazing fast clicks, super speedy updates, and the highest security available.
