Amazon ran some tests on their website speed…
They discovered that if amazon.com slowed down by one second, the company would lose $1.6 billion.
1.6 billion dollars. Because of one second lag time.
That’s how much speed matters on the internet.
Quite simply, customers aren’t willing to hang around and wait for a website to load. Not even a respected site like Amazon.
So how long are people willing to wait for a website to load?
Studies show that you’ve got about 3 seconds.
After 3 seconds, half your visitors will give up and leave.
So imagine my surprise when I tested my WordPress website, Bitcatcha. In some parts of the world, it took nine seconds to load.
That’s the moment I decided to drop everything and speed up my website.
I thought about hiring an expert, but I decided to save myself thousands of dollars and try it myself. I discovered it’s actually very easy to do.
(There was plenty of trial and error, but don’t worry – I’m going to let you copy all the settings and tricks I used).
The result? I slashed SIX (in fact, seven!) seconds off my website load time.
After running my site through various tests, Bitcatcha.com now loads (completely) in less than 3 seconds.
And, as you can see below, I improved my Google PageSpeed Insights significantly. (This is Google’s recommendations for website speed, which can drastically affect your SEO).

Are You Worried About Your Website Speed?
Try loading your website now. Does it feel slow?
If the answer’s yes, it could be affecting your user-experience, your sales and even your SEO.
- First Impressions MatterIf your website is slow, your visitors immediately get a poor impression of your business.
- TrustWe instinctively have less trust in slow websites. We’re less likely to buy from them.
- User ExperienceWhen your website is too slow, it creates a poor user experience right from the start.
There’s another thing too:
A Slow Website May Be Harming Your Search Rank…
Google has confirmed that website speed is an important factor in their ranking algorithm.
In other words, slow WordPress sites are penalized by Google, and you may find your website lower down on search results.
It makes sense if you think about it…
Google doesn’t want to send people to slow websites, so it’s no surprise that Google priorities fast-loading sites.
And the biggest problem of all:
A Slow Website May Even Be Killing Your Sales
As I mentioned at the start, Amazon calculated that a slow website would cost them billions of dollars.
Why? Because slow speeds scare away customers. It creates a lack of trust which creates hesitation at the checkout.
Some customers will disappear before your site even has chance to load. They simply give up.
So if your WordPress site relies on sales, slow speeds may be killing your revenue.
