Speed of loading is extremely important for any website. It is observed that visitors tend to visit other links in the Google Search results, If your website does not load within seconds. We had the experience of losing about 40% of the visitors, when our website ran slow for about 10 %.

A few extra seconds could have a huge impact on your ability to engage visitors and make sales. This means that having a fast site is essential — not just for ranking well with Google, but for keeping your bottom-line profits high.

Having a slow running website is a nightmare because it can put potential customers off of buying through your site or readers from viewing your articles and information. After all, no one likes a website that runs slow and takes what seems like hours to load, do they?
