Page load times are one of the largest contributing factors in how many visitors view a website. Web surfers are becoming more and more impatient the faster internet gets. If a page takes longer than a few seconds to load, many viewers will abandon the site, and never view any content.
“Every millisecond matters” – Google Engineer.
How Many Users Abandon Per Second
A full 7% of users will abandon a website after just 1 second how loading time. This increases to 35% of users after 10 seconds of loading time. Fast, efficient, loading time is pivotal in increasing viewers, and as such increasing revenue due to sales or ad revenue.
If your website is responsible for $50,000 in sales per day, a 7% drop in viewers due to a 1 second page delay could result in $1.25 million in lost sales per year.
Example: The Google Story
Google Vice President Marissa Mayer asked web surfers – would you rather see 10 or 30 results for your Google search? The users agreed that 30 results per page sounded like a good idea. So Google implemented it on some results pages.
Pages that displayed 30 results each had traffic to them drop an astounding 20%. Google tested the loading difference between the 10 and 30 results pages and found that it was just half of a second. If half of a second made that much of a difference in how long users were willing to wait, how much of a difference could it make to your site if you carved a second or two off of load time?
