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.
Google's PageSpeed Insights ranks pages based on performance best practices. A higher score indicates adherence to Google's best practice recommendations.
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.
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.
