A fast loading website is needed – when it comes to SERP (Search Engine Result Position)
One of the many factors that come into where your website is going to rank on Google for its targeted keywords is your web hosting service respectively how fast your website is loading. If you have a slow loading website, it doesn’t really matter how well optimised the rest of your on-page search engine optimisation is – you will going to suffer when it comes to SERP’s (Search Engine Result Positions).
Google would ideally like your website to load in 3 seconds or less. Why? Because statistics show that users who have to wait longer than this for a website to load are more likely to abandon their visitor and go elsewhere. And what about those that actually make it to the first page? They are less likely to browse through your site, meaning a higher bounce rate. If you combine these two factors and don’t do anything about reducing these numbers, it’s going to hurt your rankings.
What can you do to improve website loading speeds?
There’s a variety of optimisation methods you can apply to speed up how quickly your website loads including enabling gzip compression, leveraging browser caching, minifying CSS and much more – but before you do any of that, you need to start on a great and decent platform.
If you have web hosting with providers like Bluehost, GoDaddy or HostGator, you might be paying only a small amount per month, but it’s not going to do you any favours. Normally big companies like this overcram these servers with hundreds of websites which is how they can afford to provide you a package so cheap, which is what causes the speed to be slow in the first place.
On the other end of the spectrum you have companies like Flywheel or wpengine but they’re very expensive if you want a managed server. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to pay through the roof for a decent setup but it is worth shopping around and reading reviews of different hosting providers, as it’s going to make the world of difference when it comes to your rankings.
