Day 10 – Pagespeed

Content Enrichment/ seo/

 

I’m including page speed in the category of ”content enrichment”…  I think it is almost as important as the content itself.  Having amazing images and rich content is one thing but if the user experience is sluggish you may find your visitors switching off (closing the site) before the page loads.    And I’m the first to admit that my attention span is as short as a well formed simile !

In 2010 Matt Cutts (of Google) wrote a blog entry stating that Google had begun to use “site speed” in one of 200 signals they were using for search rankings.  See the article here.

 

Here are two really good resources to identify parts of your website that need tweaking!
