Page Speed

Google has indicated site speed (and as a result, page speed) is one of the signals used by its algorithm to rank pages. ‚ÄčIn addition, a slow page speed means that search engines can crawl fewer pages using their allocated crawl budget, and this could negatively affect your indexation. Page speed is also important to user experience. Pages with a longer load time tend to have higher bounce rates and lower average time on page. Longer load times have also been shown to negatively affect conversions.
