It’s no secret that Google ranks websites that load quickly. Website speed is one of the most important factors that search engine crawlers consider when browsing the Internet and indexing websites. This is hardly surprising, given that 53% of visitors will leave a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load. Coincidentally, the average website speed is 3.21 seconds, which means that your website needs to perform above the standard to capture the attention of visitors. However, before you start optimizing your website loading time, you need to check whether or not your website even needs speed optimization. Luckily, there are many free tools that will analyze your website within seconds. If you want to test your website speed, we recommend the following tools: Pingdom GTMetrix Google Page Speed Insights In case your website loads slowly, you will need to perform website speed…

Search engine optimization is not particularly hard, but it can be a daunting task for beginners. That is because SEO is full of technical terms and phrases, similar to any other profession.
