Just so we know what we are discussing here, Website ‘Page Speed’ is the measurement of how fast the content on your web page will load. Page Speed can sometimes be confused with ‘Website Speed’ which is actually the average speed for a selection of pages on the same site or URL.
Phrases like Total Load Time and Time to First Byte are common areas to measure. No matter how you measure it, there is no doubt that a faster website page speed is better.
Google indicates that website speed is a signal it uses to rank. A slow page speed means that a Search Engine can be limited and crawl fewer pages, so obviously this could affect the indexing of the website.
Page Speed is important to users, as people are impatient! So longer loading times can lead to bigger bounce rates, and can affect conversions on your landing pages.
There are different ways that Speed can be improved. Image Compression techniques, File compression, Images can also be optimised for size even before they reach the website.
Minification is a compression technique to reduce code. Keeping redirects to a minimum or not having any will also help. We can help Scan Your Site and see where areas of improvement are, and go from there.
We also offer Full Website SEO Scans to check the site for many other ranking factors, including Google Position, Keyword Success and Competitor Analysis.
If you have any concerns that your Website Speed is not what it should be, or you simply need to make sure – there are various tools that can be used, or we can do this for you and present back a detailed report and analysis.
The report may contain technical improvements to your website hosting or server response times, advise that browser or server caching can be utilised, or advise that the use of a Content Delivery Network to deliver website content be employed.
Image Optimisation and Compression is often the biggest culprit, but the journey starts with a Website Speed Audit to take a snap-shot of the current state so we can see what can be done to make the biggest improvement.
