How to use Google Page Speed Insights to Increase your Search Rankings

You’re building links, all your meta tags are correct, you are writing new content, but your site still isn’t ranking. One of the things that businesses sometimes fail to look at when trying to figure out why your site isn’t ranking is your page speed.

First of all, page speed is important because if you have a slow page, you will lose a lot of your web traffic before the visitor even gets there, because the potential visitor will hit back before they even get there.

According to Google research, the chances that you lose that visitor increases 32% as your load time increases from 1 to 3 seconds.

But the worst part about a slow website is that you will see that your search results are suffering because of it. So what should you do if you think that page speed is affecting your search rankings?

Go to Google PageSpeed Insights
