HOW IMPORTANT IS MY WEBSITE SPEED RANK?

Understand more about Website Speed

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.
