Why speed is critical to your bottom-line
It’s critical that your website is fast (as in sub-4 seconds). Speed has a dramatic effect on visitor engagement, trust, and ultimately, revenue. Google also treats speed as a ranking signal, so this is an SEO boost too!
- According to 2018 research by Google, 53% of mobile users will leave a site that takes 3+ seconds to load. 81% will leave if 6+ seconds!
- A 1 second page delay can result in a 7% reduction in conversions. If an e-commerce site is making £10,000 per day, this could potentially cost you £250,000 in lost sales every year. Source: Kissmetrics

How we measure your speed results
