I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending website speed test tool – GTmetrix.
GTmetrix has a suite of features and options to make optimizing your website clear and easy. It gives you insight on how well your site loads and provides actionable recommendations on how to optimize it. You can also use the tool to analyze the page load of your site from 28 servers in 7 different regions around the world.
How fast your website loads is critical – a good site will load in 2 seconds. Research shows that a single second delay in site load time can reduce your conversions by 7 percent. If your site is taking longer than that, consider that around 40% of people will leave a website if it doesn’t load in 3 seconds.
The faster your site, the better. Google announced back in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches too.
