Why Site Speed Matters

A survey from Google concluded that users want to see your site load in less than 3-4 seconds, if it doesn’t, it’s likely they are going to go somewhere else. Kissmetrics backs this up with data suggesting that 40% of users will leave your site if it doesn’t load in less than 3 seconds.

These numbers are even more true for mobile users. If you don’t have a mobile responsive site that loads fast, it’s time to update your website, or accept the consequences. Balancing site speed and great user experience has always been troublesome for photographers, due to a heavy load of images that they obviously want to upload in high resolution (so it looks perfect on a 4k screen).

Speed is also important for site usability and SEO. Google introduced site speed as a signal for SEO back in 2010. Most recently they’ve highlighted the importance of site speed for mobile devices, as Google moves towards a more mobile friendly web.

With that said, let’s get into the first section, learning how you can effectively test your site for speed.
