Speed is an important ranking factor. Your blog or website speed directly affects user experience, and Slow-speed websites never have a chance to outrank sites that load faster.

According to SemRush, "if your site loads in 5 seconds, it is faster than approximately 25% of the web."

Who does not like a fast website? Ask yourself! Do you not like a website that loads within a couple of seconds? Or do you like waiting for minutes before the page loads?

You have the answer!

Now the question is how you can improve your website load speed.

Many factors affect your website speed, such as;

  • Javascript
  • Fonts
  • Images
  • Videos
  • Map

You should know that even though some of these things are necessary for your website, you can still optimize them to improve your website speed.

But how to find out what you should optimize?

Many speed optimization tools are available online that display your website's issues and suggest improving your webpage speed.
