Speed Matters

In our world speed matters right. I mean the faster the better. We don’t like to wait for anything really. Examples; Traffic lights, microwaves, and fast food just to name a few. The internet, in my opinion, has helped usher us into a society where we want it, and we want it NOW.

What does this mean for your website

User experience is important to the powers who rule the web, this means speed equals good page rank. Google and other search engines want to make sure that if they are going to bump you up the list, that their viewers have a smooth experience on your site. Smooth meaning no delays, quick page loads, and rapid results.

How can you check your site

There a variety of website speed testers out there. One of my favorites that will allow you to test the speed of your site and it’s SEO rank is Neil Patel. I like Neil Patel because it is free, and using it you can see how you stack up against your competitors. It will allow you to input your web address and the address of 3 other sites. After testing all 3 it will tell you how each one stands up in 1st through 4th place, and what improvements you should make.  Click Here to check out the Neil Patel site. Pingdom is also, a great website speed tester. It’s also free and gives you a grade of A – F with a break down of what needs to be fixed. Click here to visit the Pingdom site speed tester.

security

Did you know?

Did you know?

If you are a small business or new business and you want your new website to move up the ranks on search pages investing in securing your website automatically bumps you up the list.

Especially with sites like Google. Your site in comparison to others who have not secured their sites will be seen sooner in searches for similar products and services.  You may have a site that is 100% safe, however, just because you have not invested in its security it will get a lower page rank than your competitor. 

The Cost

Unlike SEO site security is an inexpensive fix, especially if you are already working with a site designer or developer. It will depend on what level of security you need but for most start-up business a lower level does just fine. 

When you are investing in and working with a Web Designer you are not just paying for what they can make the site look like. You are also paying for better visibility, and the know-how, to handle issues like this.
