If the speed of your website isn’t really something that you consider important, you may need to think again.

Why?

No one has the patience to wait for something they want and the average attention span of Internet users is even lower than you would think it is!

Take a look at these numbers:

  • A case study found that over 51% of online shoppers will not complete a purchase if the website is slow to load.
  • Demand for faster loading times is increasing and 47% of Internet users expect a website to load within 2 seconds.
  • If your website loads slowly during peak traffic times, 75% of visitors will jump to competitor sites instead.

When it comes to load times, every second counts. Think we’re kidding? Nope.

  • An 11% drop in page views
  • A 16% drop in customer satisfaction
  • A 7% drop in completed sales

In addition to a loss of conversions, user experience and customer satisfaction, a slower website can also be penalized by Google, especially for mobile websites. If you’ve worked hard to build your page ranking, this is the last thing that you’d ever want to deal with.
