Make Sure Your Website Loads Quickly
If first impressions truly last, a website that takes 10 seconds to load has already lost the user’s attention and interest.
Most people have a limited amount of time to research or find out about a business or brand, and this element of a website needs to have sufficient focus to ensure that users are not lost before they even see the brand’s logo or read a word of website copy.
Research suggests that around 40 percent of people will abandon a web page if it takes longer than three seconds to load.
In addition to that, having a slow website could stop people from finding it in the first place, as site speed is one of Google's ranking factors that will affect search results.
When designing and developing a website, the load speed should be a major consideration for the company you choose to trust for your site. Speak to them about your expectations and how long they expect the website to take to load for someone with a decent and stable connection.
By using a site like GT Metrix, you are able to test your site load speed, and resolve any issues that come up. If you are not happy with the amount of time it takes to load, you can speak to a professional web design firm and find out what they can do to speed things up.
