Slow websites influence bounce rates, conversion rates, and even your search engine rankings. That said, I’m surprised by the number of sites that are still gruelingly slow. Adam showed me a site today hosted on GoDaddy that was taking in excess of 10 seconds to load. That poor person thinks they’re saving a couple bucks on hosting… instead they’re losing tons of money because prospective clients are bailing on them.
We’ve grown our readership quite a bit here, and I have no doubt that some of the success has been because we migrated to WPEngine with a Content Delivery Network powered By MaxCDN, a much faster CDN than Amazon.
