According to the above article published in 2016, 53% of people who browse the internet on their phones abandon sites that take too long to load, longer than 3 seconds to be exact.
It doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you count to 3, then imagine your customers waiting longer than that every single time they refresh the page, it starts to get a little tedious. This highlights the importance of website optimisation. There are many things you can do to speed up your site.
Most sites that are slow are trying to do waay too much at once. They could be loading several images or trying to run dynamic processes like page transitions or fly in headers.
All of this links back to SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation. This is basically the act of trying to make your website as user friendly as possible. Search engines like Google and Bing have algorithms that help them rank websites in search results by a certain set of criteria. These could be the uniqueness of the content, the load times, the security of the site. It’s a fine art, and it takes a keen eye to bring a website up to its fullest capabilities.
Fortunately at Hosting-Australia we have these keen eyes readily available. Ask about our SEO services and we can get you in touch with one of our experts so that you can work closely together to optimise your site.
