Lightning Fast Load Times

 

No one likes waiting for a web page to load so start using these website speed tools today.

Not only is a faster site more enjoyable to use but it will also help your Google rankings. It is becoming increasingly important to make your website load as fast as possible.

Some interesting facts:

  • 47% of consumers expect a web page to load in under 2 seconds.
  • A 1 second delay could result in a 7% reduction in conversions.
  • A massive 73% of mobile users say that they have attempted to visit a website that was too slow to load.
  • 40% of people close a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load.

 

Whenwebsite speed tools testing your website speed it is important to use a variety of tools due to speed will vary on your location.

I recommend you try these website speed tools:

Yslow

Google PageSpeed

Pingdom Tools

WebpageTest

Each of these have their own bonuses, for example Pingdom Tools will let you check from multiple locations.

My advice is that you use all four of the website speed tools to help you get the best from your website.

Another factor is please check with your hosting if they have a plugin you can use to cache your site. I would highly
recommend Siteground for hosting. They are very helpful and will help you to get your website running as smooth as possible. Other website speed tools you could use are WP Rocket and WP Super Cache both of these will help. I have provided both a paid and free option there.

If by now your website is still running slowly you will need to start looking at your image sizes. There are some plugins that can help with this. One I will quickly mention is WP Smush. I will not go in to much detail with this as I plan to write a post about this in the future.

If you do not have the time or would like some help making your site faster contact Combe Wood Computers they offer a whole range of services to help you out.
