Page Speed Matters

stephen gordon author gtmetrix report
I’m a little too close to the 3 second mark for comfort.

Web page designers rarely talk about page speed, and that’s a big mistake.

47% of online consumers expect a website to load in less than two seconds and any site that takes more than 3 seconds to load risks 40% of its visitors abandoning the site 79% of which will never return to your website ever again.

You risk losing half your website’s audience forever if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.

Go to GTMetrix.com to test if you’re under the magic three seconds. WordPress users should visit pagepipe.com for a hardcore guide to speed up your site.
