    Great article.

    Definitely something something people should keep in mind. If a site loads too slowly, it will reduce traffic.

    Page speed matters a lot in the world when every one needs instant response/result for what they wanted. This includes the speed of web page on a click of the mouse.

    In the present world, peole would not even trust a slow loading site.

    Speed has been king for a very long time. Even when I was making hundreds of sites I used as landing pages for PPC, I would always do whatever I can to make them load as quickly as possible.

    This is probably one of the most underrated aspects of SEO and just page building in general. If people find you in organic search or click on a PPC ad, and your page takes too long to load, they will simply just hit the back button and choose the next option.

    High ranking web pages can lose 50% or more of their viewers just by being slow. Since it has also become a key component of ranking, it is that much more important.

    I have been to website’s before and I am unimpressed with site’s load speed on occasion. I run blogs on the internet and when my site had a WordPress CSS, i run wp-super cache. It can also be very informative to your users to write a article to increase your users browsers speed by refreshing their cache and deleting their cookies so they can load web pages at a quicker rate.

    Even if your internet speed is fast, your site will still be slower to other sites in comparison.

    I like infographics. It makes me understand things much better for some reason. I have a question: how much of an impact does a webpage load speed have on SEO?

    By the way, I read somewhere that the use of infographics help with SEO. Is that correct? If so, how? It’s just an image…

    Thanks for the tips!

    No one knows exactly how much speed helps with SEO. Google doesn’t disclose anything about their algorithm. But if you think about the user experience, site speed plays a big part, so therefor it must be an SEO factor.

    Infographics help with SEO because they build links.

    This is a very good post to learn how to optimize web load speed. I really liked the infographic. If a page takes more than a couple of seconds to load, I’ll propbably try elsewhere, it’s really annoying.
