How Fast Should My Website Load?

Business advice | Loading Times | Ping | SEO | Skypoynt | Website

In an ever impatient world, website lag can be a real killer to the productivity of a website.

According to a survey taken out by gomez.com over half of consumers expect a website to load in two seconds or less.

Let’s not forget about mobile, according to KISSmetrics, 18 percent of mobile users will abandon a website if it doesn't load in less than five seconds.
If it takes more than 10 seconds to load, 30 percent will abandon the site.

How can I tell how quickly my site loads? You don’t have to get out a stopwatch! There are tools online that tell you for free how fast your website is.
One such tool is Pingdom: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/.

Did you know, google listens to consumers about their wants and needs for websites and have actually included load time into their considerations within
algorithms that determine ranking? In short your SEO can be affected by poor page load times.

Here is a list of things that may be affecting your website’s speed:

  • Inadequate hosting
  • Image sizing
  • File formats
  • Text Graphics
  • Non optimized caching
  • Redirects & DNS lookups
  • Unnecessary/untidy code
  • Out of date CMS software

The above list is not exhaustive and to really understand your website speed issue, contact a professional, like us here at Skypoynt to understand the
issues surrounding your website.

Remember that for every second you shave off of load time, you’ll tend to boost customer confidence and trust in your site, and sow the seeds that will
make them likely to tell others about you. In those cases, a few seconds can make all the difference!
