Dear reader, what do your users expect FIRST when they click on your site’s link?
They expect it to be relevant … and bookmark-worthy, right?
Wrong. They expect it to open and open fast. And about half of them would leave if it takes more than 3 secs to load.
That means a site’s performance is pivotal to creating an optimal user experience and improving the conversion rate. It also helps you get higher rankings in Google because it’s one of more than 200 signals Google uses to rank sites.
Don’t know how to test your site’s speed and how to improve it? No worries.
Let us guide you.
First off, check your page size: Is it bloated? Does it have things you don’t need? Can you afford to trim it down a bit?
According to a poll by CSS-Tricks, 87% of people think that page size should be 1mb or under. So if yours is more than that, you know it’ll impact your bottom line.
Also, check whether your current page speed is affecting your user’s experience. You can analyze speed using tools such as Yslow and Google Page Speed.
We’re living in a world where the Web is accessed from anywhere and everywhere. This means smartphone penetration is increasing day by day.
Not everywhere, though, is Internet speed lightning-fast. Many people still use 2G because they can’t afford high-bandwidth connections. Then there’re mobile network bottlenecks even for those who have 3G, 4G, or LTE. Many webmasters still haven’t gone mobile even as Google itself recommends responsive web design.
See, there’re a lot of things to think about in order to deliver a performance that’s not just amazing – it’s future-friendly.
