PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT PACKAGES
It doesn’t matter how pretty your website is if your performance sucks.
Over time, your site speed, SEO metrics, and website performance can naturally start to break down. This is just part of having a website on the ever-changing web, and occasional technical work can get your site
Why Does This Matter?
35% of visitors are less likely to engage with you if your website performance is poor. 66% of consumers say website performance influences their opinion of a company.
Why Site Speed Matters
Google and other search engines penalizes slow website speeds via rankings, because it negatively impacts your visitors’ experiences.
On the other hand, faster websites attract more traffic, encourage visitors to spend more time on your website, and keep visitors from bouncing off because a page is taking far too long to load.
Doesn't SEO just have to do with words?
The term SEO is loaded, and it’s not just about the words on your page. In addition to site speed having a significant impact on SEO, there are other technical aspects of Search Engine Optimization that can help boost your quality score and your rankings on search engines. These include things like image alt tags, meta descriptions for pages, descriptive headings and appropriate heading hierarchy, and more.
