How’s Your Page Speed?

According to a study done by Missouri School of Science and Technology, a first impression of your website is made in two-tenths of a second.  A second finding of that study is that after another 2.6 seconds, that first impression is reinforced as the eyes of a visitor are focused on an area of your page that influences that first impression.

What happens when your page loads slowly?  According to Social Media Examiner, “53% of all mobile visits are abandoned if a page doesn’t load within 3 seconds,” and “Half of all of your visitors expect pages to load in less than 2 seconds.”  Users today are primed for fast experiences and immediate results.

According to Google Chrome Developers, “75% of users rate speed as the most important part of the user experience (UX).  Plus, mobile loading speed is a major factor in Google search results.
