Optimal Website Load Time
Page loading time obviously is an important part of any website’s user experience. And many times we’ll let it slide to accommodate better aesthetic design, new nifty functionality or add more content to web pages.
So can the speed of your website effect on your business so much? Even if your site isn’t loading too slowly, can it still be improved? I want to share with you how not to lose your customers and money because of a low speed of loading page. Any ecommerce project should load immediately, especially if it is restaurant website.
Visitors tend to care more about speed than all the bells and whistles we want to add to our websites. Additionally, page loading time is becoming a more important factor when it comes to search engine rankings.
