Does your page take more than 3 seconds to load? Do you even know how long it takes your page to load? How can I improve my page load times?
These are all questions you should be asking yourself or your web developer.
In order to discover how long your page takes to load go to GTmetrix.com , type in your website and run the test. This test will show you your load time and performance. The load time (largest contentful paint) should be under 3 seconds.
Fixing the top issues is how you improve the score. Having an “A” score is vital not only to the user experience but also for your SEO. More and more Google is putting emphasis on page speed as a metric as a ranking factor in its search engine. This in turn will affect your conversion rates.
We encourage you to ask anyone you may be considering to build or maintain your business' website to take a look at the GTMetrix. A lot of times designers don't pay attention to this which results in a less than optimal website.
A website page with good Performance (Speed), Accessibility, and on-site SEO Best Practices will help increase your conversion rate.
