Your website should load faster than reading this sentence.


by: Ewan Watt 1.6 min read

In this day and age, website speed is extremely important for businesses. Did you know:

47% of people expect your site to load in less than 2 seconds.
40% 
will abandon it entirely if it takes longer than 3 seconds.

Yes a slow website is frustrating, but you might be wondering, does this actually impact your Google rankings? 

The answer:
“Google will reduce the amount of crawlers it sends to your site if your server is slower than 2 seconds.”

Whilst you can do all the work in the world optimising imagery and the rest, many people don’t consider the main processor of your website: your website hosting.

But aren’t all website hosting providers the same? Don’t they all do the same thing?

In some ways, yes: most hosting providers do the same thing, but it is the servers and configuration that differs. A hosting server is just like a computer: each one sets up their servers and run their technology differently.

So, how has ROI tackled this?

In the past week, ROI moved a client to a new hosting provider and implemented Cloudflare. The results? An increase of 50% performance improvement (based on before and after tests via Google Page Speed Insights).

In another speed test via Pingdom, whilst the score didn’t improve; the loading time of the website was 5 seconds quicker and reduced the number of requests by 20.

BEFORE

AFTER

After the website move our client said:
“So far, it’s looking promising and the site ‘feels’ a lot faster.”

In this case, a website move and Cloudflare implementation decreased the load time of the website and increased the speed performance. This providers a better user experience and improves your Google SEO Ranking
