It’s no secret that page load time is extremely important for your website. If your site takes too long to load visitors will go elsewhere. But did you know how little time you actually have to grab that user? The chart below outlines the scary truth; if your page takes over five seconds to load you’re losing over 30% of your visitors!

What can you do to increase speed?

There are a number of things you can do to increase the speed of your site. Some are simple, others are more involved and start at the beginning of your website project.

This is only a fraction of the things you can do to increase the speed of your site, but they’re the easiest to do and can have the most impact.

If you want to see how your site rates you can use Google’s PageSpeed Insights. This tool will rank your site out of 100 points, and let you know what you can do to speed up your site.
