Imagine you go to your favorite website and it takes forever to load one day. You decide to pull out your mobile device and find it’s even slower there. You wonder what’s going on, what have they changed on the website, and most times they haven’t changed anything. Did you know those load times affect their SEO and you may not see that site again, especially if you landed there from a Google search?

It’s crazy right! I have created some tips for you to avoid that happening to you in your business. From website speed to image optimization these two things along can have long-lasting effects on your load times and SEO.

How Fast does your Website Load?

When is the last time you ran a test on your website to check your load times? I highly recommend you run a test of your website at TEST MY SITE owned by Google.
You go to this link, put your page in and it will give you results. These results will give you an idea of what you need to do to speed up your website.

The reason it is important to stay on top of your load speed is that it affects your website SEO-wise. Google rankings not only want you to have SSL, links from other reputable sources but most importantly they want you to be mobile friendly as mobile results will be published first.

One way to speed up your website is to switch hosts. Check out this link for details about the top 10 tested web hosts.

Image Optimization

Not only is your web host important but the amount of content also reflects heavily on your website. All of those stock photos that are used with file sizes over 1MB are really slowing you down. Image optimization is where you need to attend to that. At Siteground, there is a plugin that comes with your WordPress install that optimizes your website. Join in on the fun and check it out.
