Why are Atomic8Ball web sites so fast?
Ever since Google announced in 2010 that site speed was added as
a signal in their search ranking algorithms we, at Atomic8Ball, have been focused
on providing the fastest web sites possible.
What is PageSpeed?
Google's PageSpeed Insights ranks pages based on performance best
practices. A higher score indicates adherence to Google's best
Atomic8Ball's clients average a PageSpeed score of 85. For our Atomic Marketing
clients, we go above and beyond to fine tune every last little
bit of optimization possible, and average a score of 92.
A typical page that has had little effort devoted towards optimization scores a
45 - worse if there are many off-site references that must be loaded.
Why is web site speed important?
- Loading time is a major contributing factor to page abandonment.
- Mobile Internet users expect a web-browsing experience on their
phone that's comparable to their desktop or laptop.
- 73% of mobile users reported that they've encountered a web site that was
too slow to load.
Just how fast is an Atomic8Ball site?
According to a study by New Relic (a web application performance management company)
completed in August 2012, in a review of over 1 billion web pages
across the globe it takes an average of 6 seconds for a web page
to fully load.
The average Atomic8Ball site takes just over 1 second
to load. For our Atomic Marketing clients, this number is just
over 0.6 seconds - faster than 94.8% of web sites.
