No longer than 3 seconds
Having a slow-loading website is the worst. There are many possible causes of a slow site, but the effects are so bad. For instance, you can lose potential traffic because people don’t like to wait. The average visitor can’t wait any longer than 3 seconds. If during this period a website doesn’t show up, they will just leave without ever coming back. That was only one of the many disadvantages. Slow sites are also considered bad by most search engines. If you have one and do nothing to fix this problem, you will probably lose a bunch of visitors because search engines will decide to change the rankings of your site. We usually have a short attention span, especially when we have a fast internet connection to begin with.
Google is known for penalizing slow websites. Before it happens to you, we think it is important to scan through your site and see if it runs fast or slow. There are a few tools that you can use to measure the speed of the website. Mobile users are highly affected by these sites because as we all know, Smartphones are pretty much different from computers or laptops when it comes to processing power. For this reason, for a website to compete for search engine rankings, one of the most important requirements is speed. You need to see it from the perspective of a user. If a website takes forever to load, you might leave in less than 5 seconds.
What causes a website to run slow?
Cheap hosting. Affordable and cheap are different. Affordable hosting packages are usually more reliable. With a cheap hosting package, your website will be hosted on a shared server with many other sites. Since they all consume the same resources, all of them affect each other. If one uses too much CPU power for instance, it will cause other sites to run slow. Being in a shared environment is not a good idea, but we have no other option sometimes.
Not installing speed tools. Have you tried speed optimization tools? You should definitely try some because they will boost the loading time of every page. Some webmasters simply don’t know that these tools exist, while others don’t bother to try. Now that you know they exist, you should try the top-rated ones at least.
Lost assets. A website can be connected to several sites. For instance, you may host images on another site. This method is deemed effective for improving loading speed. Besides images, you may host scripts and other files elsewhere. Well, you have to make sure that those resources are accessible. If they have been removed, this will affect the primary site. As a result, the loading speed also will be affected.
Lack of optimized images. Remember that everything posted on your site, they will be uploaded to your hosting account. When a page has loads of large-sized images, it will take much longer to load because those images are stored in one place. You can avoid a slow site by reducing the size of all images. This will definitely boost the loading speed. There are many ways to optimize an image, like compressing, cropping, and resizing it.
Poorly written code. A website is made up of series of code. Code is also used to create plugins. Both elements are equally important and to create a fast-loading website, it takes well-structured code. When two or more plugins conflict within a website, they will cause some trouble. Your website will probably get knocked down or there will be some errors that appear on the pages.
