Fast websites

Better user experiences, improved SEO ranking and increased conversions

Why it is important to have a fast-loading website

Website speed is the amount of time it takes for a web page to load completely. It is an important factor in user experience, SEO, and conversion rates.

A fast-loading website is important for the following reasons:

  • Improved user experience: Users are impatient. They expect websites to load quickly and efficiently. If a website takes too long to load, users are likely to abandon it and visit a competitor’s site instead. A study by Google found that a one-second delay in page load time can lead to a 7% decrease in conversions.
  • Better SEO: Google uses website speed as a ranking factor. This means that faster-loading websites are more likely to rank higher in search results. This is because Google wants to provide its users with the best possible experience, and fast-loading websites are generally seen as being more user-friendly.
  • Increased conversion rates: Conversion rate is the percentage of visitors to your website who take a desired action, such as making a purchase or signing up for a newsletter. Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between website speed and conversion rates. For example, a study by Amazon found that a 100-millisecond delay in page load time can lead to a 1% decrease in sales.

In addition to the above benefits, a fast-loading website can also help to:

  • Reduce bounce rates
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Increase brand awareness
  • Boost website traffic

How to improve website speed

There are a number of things you can do to improve the speed of your website. Some of the most common tips include:

  • Optimize your images: Images can be one of the biggest contributors to slow page load times. Make sure to optimize your images by compressing them and using the correct file format. We can advise on how this can be done or, for an extra charge, process existing images for you if needed.
  • Minify your code: Minification is the process of removing unnecessary characters from your code, such as spaces, tabs, and comments. This can make your code smaller and faster to load.
  • Use a content delivery network (CDN): A CDN is a network of servers that deliver your website’s content to users from the server that is closest to them. This can help to improve page load times for users all over the world. This is something we can implement for your website if required.
  • Choose a fast web hosting provider: Using Full Speed Host can have a big impact on your website’s speed and thus, improve your user experience, SEO positions and conversion rates
