How to fix your website speed?

Would you stay on a website that takes more than five seconds to load?

Most people answer “no” to this question.

The speed of your website can affect not only your customer experience but your conversion rates, your Google rankings, and more.

The best practice is to have your average page load time under three seconds.

Your website speed will depend on two main elements: your website itself and your hosting.

Your website code must be optimised first, including compressing images, javascript, and database connectivity.

In most cases optimising website code will dramatically improve the speed of your website loading time.

However, if it is still slow after the code optimisation, your hosting has to be improved as well.

Hosting improvement means upgrading your web server, and it’s like upgrading your computer with better memory, processor and so on.

How to check your website speed?

Your website may load fast on your own computer because you visit it often, and it’s cached internally in your computer memory.

However, for any new user who comes to your website for the first time, it might not be the case.

The best tool to check your website speed is:

Google Page Speed Insights

Just enter your URL (website address) and check the score for the mobile and desktop users.

Review from Jonathan Lockley – Bestfloorsanding.com.au

I was referred to Max and his company Online Prospects by a really close friend.

Since working together we’ve noticed a huge increase in the number of new enquiries we receive each day. As of today, we are getting on average160 new customer leads each month compared to only 40-50 before we started working with Online Prospects. 

Review from Peter Jones – PeterJonesConveyancing.com.au

 I knew that a lot of people would want services that I provide, but nobody would know that I was here, other than the clients I dealt with before.

I needed some advice and some directions regarding online marketing. I’ve been very pleased with your approach and your ability to do what you do. I’ve been looking for help, and you provided it. I would refer you to anyone I could.

Review from Ben Coates – ExcellentPainter.com.au

We’ve been working with Max and the Online Prospects for the last six years now, and we’ve found that their service is great for our business, and I highly recommend you talk to Max. They can help your company.

I know they can and because they’ve helped us for so long.
