Slow loading websites cost retailers 1.73bn in lost sales each year!

Speed & reliability of your website is everything. Who loves a fast website & who hates slow sites? Have a look at these metrics;

  • 48% of shoppers expect a website to load in two seconds or less
  • 40% will abandon a web page if it takes longer than three seconds to load
  • 52% of shoppers claim that page load times are important for their loyalty to a website
  • 14% will start shopping at a different site if pages are slow.
  • 23% will stop shopping or walk away from their computer
  • 64% of shoppers who are dissatisfied with their site experience will go somewhere else next time

At peak times the stats get even worse;

  • 75% of online customers left their site rather than wait for pages to load
  • 88% of customers are less likely to return to a website if its slow
  • 50% of shoppers have a less than positive perception of the company

Try a search on Google for "page load time importance"

A one second delay in page-load can cause 7% loss in customer conversions

Fact: Google incorporates site speed as a ranking factor
Have a read of Google's blog on site speed - http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/using-site-speed-in-web-search-ranking.html

There are two main tools for checking site speed. Pingdom website speed test, which performs a full waterfall of your website, the elements it loads, the page size, the performance grade and the number of requests. You can choose from the source location of the test:
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Dallas, Texas, USA
New York City, New York, USA

We have ran the speed tests on our top 3 competitors (we chose these by searching on Google for "nginx hosting UK")


The screenshots say it all;
