Page Speed: Let’s talk about it!
OK, let’s talk about page speed. and how it affects your business website.
You probably spent a lot of time and money getting your business off the ground, and part of that was getting your website built and launched. Good Job! An online presence is one of the most important ways consumers will find out about your business.
I am sure your website looks amazing. You want to impress people with your business, and a good-looking website is sure to impress. But what happens if your bright and shiny website is slow to load fully? People are going to leave, and just as bad, the search engines will start lowering your placement in search results. All this proves that page speed is really important. Your website needs some SEO, which stands for search engine optimization.

Not bad! Simple but pleasing design, informative, and the pages load really fast. Here is our score from Google’s PageSpeed Insights:

Now we could have added more bells and whistles and slideshows and all kinds of really amazing visual eye-candy, but if you are anything like me, in 2019 if you have to wait for a page to load or even worse a single image to load, you are likely to close the site and look somewhere else.
