One of the most common problems preventing websites from ranking higher on Google is ‘site speed’. If your home page is taking more than 3 seconds to load, this is an indication that you need to speed up the site. Sites loading at 3 seconds or less have an edge over slower sites as Google use site speed as a ranking factor.

So what is causing your site to be slow?
There are various things that could be slowing down your site. Anything from image file sizes being too big, not serving scaled images, too many http requests, or your hosting. In fact, good hosting solves a lot of those problems! I’ve recently moved all of my websites to Site Ground. I’ve seen sites go from 10 seconds to 2 seconds loading times just by changing to Site Ground. And the good thing is, they have a free website migration tool and experts at hand to do it for you. So if your site is slow, get your site over to Site Ground.
