Slow Loading Website | Bad for Business
Have you ever provided a bad Google Review for a business that was slow to provide service?
SLOW SERVICE INSIDE
As a consumer, you would appreciate a sign like this before you entered a business.
As a business owner, you would never hang a sign like this in your store. But this is what Google is planning to do on websites.
Google Chrome announced a plan to introduce badging. As a way to encourage publishers to improve site speed. Google proposed a contextual menu on links that will tell users before they click, that a site is slow. The goal is to reward fast sites.
This is Google’s announcement that puts site publishers on notice. Page speed has become even more important. Google intends to reward fast web pages, at the expense of slow pages. Page speed has always been important. From the earliest days of the Internet, faster pages converted at higher rates.
A fast-loading site is important regardless of anything Google does. In the not too distant future. Slow loading pages may experience increasing pressure to survive.
