Speed is King! Speed draws attention in Colorado. From how fast the Bronco’s can get a touch down, to how fast the Avalanche can score, to the vehicles at Bandimere Speedway, and even our own Loveland classic marathon. Speed matters. The same is true for your website.
The top 5 reasons Colorado website speed optimization matters:
1.) The quicker your site loads the more profitable it will become. Amazon.com is the leading online retailer. Amazon.com was able to increase their revenue by 1% for each .1 seconds quicker Amazon.com loads. If you want to maximize revenues you need to optimize your site in terms of speed.
2.) The quicker your site loads will result in higher customer retention. The industry leaders have made this clear. AOL stated that those in the top 10% of site speeds had 50% more page views than those in the lower 10%. The Aberdeen Group implies that a 1-second delay will result in 11% fewer individual page views, 16% loss in customer satisfaction, and a whole 7% loss in conversions.
3.) Improve your rank with Google and other search engines. Google started including your sites speed into the search rating. There are many statistics online that suggest that the speed impact has been increasing over the years
4.) Slow sites are more likely to timeout. Each second longer it takes, the closer your are getting to an error.
5.) Speed optimization will save you money in the future. Bandwidth can be expensive. The more bandwidth you use, the more expensive your hosting plan will be. Increasing your sites speed and proper optimization could save you money.
