"Making WordPress Faster with WebPageTest.org Founder Patrick Meenan of Cloudflare "
Original Air Date: February 11, 2019
Page speed is a big deal. Every second of load time is an excruciating eternity of pain for your site's visitors which slowly bleeds revenue out of your funnel and away from your bottom line. In one study from 2016 Google reported that the average U.S. retail mobile site loaded in 6.9 seconds, but, according to their then most recent data, 40% of consumers will leave a page that takes longer than three seconds to load. Ouch!
Site owners are painfully aware that slow load times cause high bounce rates and thus creating site visitors who aren't buying, aren't clicking on ads, and aren't becoming advocates for your brand or the brands you serve as an agency or freelancer. Page speed has a direct impact to your ability to grow!
