How fast is your site loading on mobile? And how is it hurting your SEO?
Why is site speed necessary?
Users have a shorter attention span than ever. If your site takes a long time to load, then your users may bounce and go to a competitor’s site.
Website speed impacts your SEO. If your site loads slowly (especially on a mobile device), then your SEO rankings could be hurt.
Having a positive online experience (including a fast-loading website) is likely to increase conversions. Which means more revenue for your business.

The benefits of a fast-loading website
It’ll likely increase sales and revenue. The faster your site is, the better experience your users will have.
It’ll improve your SEO. If your website is currently taking 11 seconds to load, and you’re able to improve that to 2 seconds, then your rankings will likely increase dramatically.
It’ll ensure that your users don’t bounce as frequently (which means that they won’t leave and go buy from a competitor).
What will happen if your site loads slowly?
You'll lose potential clients.
Users have a short attention span. If your site loads slowly, they’ll happily go visit your competitor’s site instead.
