A slow WordPress website is the fastest way to lose new customers. In fact 53% of consumers leave websites that take longer than 3 seconds to load. Slow speeds are losing you sales and leads.
When it comes to website speed, the saying “Time is money” literally applies.
How do you check your website speed?
Easy, test your own website now using the free Pingdom website speed checker. This is the best way to check the website speed your customers are actually seeing since you can choose to test locally from Australia.
Is your website looking slow?
Slow websites only get slower! In the day to day usage of a website you’re adding new content, adding new plugins and building your website traffic – all of this makes your website slower over time. You need to tune that website back up regularly to keep it performing like new.
If your website is slower than 3 seconds, you need to do something about it!
The solution is WordPress speed optimisation by a professional team of WordPress developers.
You need someone with experience who can help with WordPress by analysing where the performance issues are happening on your website and then fix those issues properly. NOT just slapping a new WordPress “speed” plugin onto the website and calling it a day!
How does a faster website help you?
Speeding up your WordPress website will bring more traffic and sales to your site. How? Google’s search engine algorithms are looking at your website speed, so it’s a factor they consider when deciding where to rank your page. Research shows that if a site does not load in 3 seconds or less visitors will bounce back to the search results and you loose customers and sales.
