Website Speed / Load Time Improvement
Is your website lagging? A slow website can significantly harm your rankings on Google…
Most savvy website owners are aware of this, however they’re not always aware that the speed of your website can be improved very quickly and affordably.
At Adrenaline, we’ve recently updated several of our client’s website load time. The process typically takes 4-5 working days and can cost as little as $500+GST, depending on the current speed of your site.
How Do I Check My Website Speed?
There are several free online tools that you can use to check your website speed / load time. They will often show varying results depending on the location of the server.
To avoid any confusion, we suggest that you check your website speed using PageSpeed Insights from Google. Simply enter your website’s URL, then click ‘Analyze’ and wait a few seconds to see your score out of 100. By default, Google will show your ‘Mobile Score’ so make sure you click on the ‘Desktop’ tab to also view your Desktop speed score out of 100.
By scrolling further down the page, you can view the Opportunities and Diagnostics that provide a detailed break-down of all the factors Google is taking into consideration when determining your score.
