What is a Site Speed Audit?
Since Google continues to focus on delivering relevant search results and a good user experience to searchers, your site speed audit should be a priority. A slow website loading speed results in a poor experience for site visitors, and therefore, a site with a slow load time may be demoted in search engine rankings.
While a faster site speed cannot increase your rankings, a slow site can have a detrimental impact on your site's positioning in search engine results pages. Additionally, it's important to improve your website speed to promote a good user experience. For every extra second that your visitors have to wait for a page to load, you could be losing a potential sale.

If your website loading speed is noticeably slow, takes over 3 seconds to load, or loads slowly on mobile platforms, you could benefit from Search Engine People's Site Speed Audit. Our SEO experts will perform both a desktop and mobile website speed analysis to determine the cause of your poor load times. We'll then recommend speed optimization tactics that may include improving elements of your web design, code, hosting provider, database or site content in order to increase overall speed.
