How Website Loading Time Impacts
Your Bottom Line

It’s irrefutable that website and page loading time impacts user experience and thus the bottom line. Too often entrepreneurs compromise load time for a better aesthetic design, unnecessary functionality or overload content to webpages.

The reality is, website visitors care much more about speed than all the bells and whistles. Why is this important? Because webpage loading time affects search engine rankings, user experience and a visitor’s “bounce-rate” (visitors that abandon their search) all resulting in a loss of revenues.

Stats and Facts

  • 73% of mobile website visitors say they’ve encountered sites that were too slow to load.
  • 47% of website and mobile site visitors expect the web page to load in 2 seconds or less.
  • 53% of mobile users leave a site that takes longer than three seconds to load.
  • A 1-second delay in page load time can reduce conversions by 7%.
  • A 2.5 million annual income would be lost by an e-commerce site making $100,000 per day with only
  • a one second load time delay.
  • Research by MachMetrics reveal most sites have a load time of 8-11 seconds.

These statistics are consistent on other platforms and browsers as well.

The Need for Speed

Why Improving Page Load Time Increases Conversions and Profits.

Load Time Matters

Quick loading sites are important and effective for conversion rates, customer retention and lifetime value.

Going Beyond Website Speed Optimization

Load time optimization is not just limited to optimizing the website. It also involves optimizing the server on which the website is hosted.In fact, a majority of the work involves optimizing the server as well as the website.

Therefore, highly effective website load time optimization should be done after the website is developed and launched. Only then can it be fully checked, tested and improved thoroughly and completely for maximum speed improvement.

Conclusion and Next Step
