Google Wants Your Site Loading in 1 Second or Less
Google recently announced page speed is a ranking factor on mobile devices. Good! This is how you can get a competitive advantage in Google simply by improving your site speed. I’ll show you how to crush your competitors by getting your WordPress site to load in less than a second. Let’s get started!
Increase traffic and customers to your site
Search engine traffic is a major source of traffic to my sites. SwimUniversity.com has 75% of its visitors on their mobile devices. My website must load quickly on 3G or less.
While there are other ranking factors to consider, speed is my competitive advantage. Larger sites I compete with don’t focus on speed. I’m smaller and more agile. They can’t compete with me.
This allows me rank for Without building backlinks, you can accomplish things that appear impossible.
You’ll Save Money by Speeding up Your Site
In addition to increasing traffic, I also saved around $500 a month by speeding my site up. What?! It’s all I know.
Swim University gets between 4 and 5 millions visitors each year. That’s a shitload of people hitting my servers. WPEngine charges for this traffic. Hosting fees alone cost me $600 per month.
After learning how to use Cloudflare I was able to speed up my website and reduce the number of people visiting my server. I was able reduce my monthly cost from $600 a month to $100
You can now visit my site from any device, and I don’t charge an extra for it. It’s so easy to be fast.
Page Speed is Critical! Studies prove page speed is really important!
You’ll Rank Higher in Google
Google ranks websites that are fast higher in search results. They first announced that page speed would be a ranking factor. They then added mobile site speed to page speed.
You’ll Retain More Customers and Make More Money

Your Visitors Won’t Bounce
A page that takes longer than 2 seconds to load will result in 47% visitors leaving your site. Kissmetrics says that over 1/4 of visitors will abandon your site if it takes more than 3 seconds for a page to load. Ouch.

“Well Worth The Money”
The pagespeed course has been amazing so I thought I would share. It was slow when I purchased a website. I mean, it was only 5.3 seconds.
While I made a few minor changes (like deleting some crappy plugins), the major difference was switching over to WP Engine.
I then went through the rest of the course, and it was even better. I installed WP Rocket, Imagify, and set up cloudflare in the correct way.
I am still working my way through the course. I plan to install carbonate one day, but will have to redesign many things first. It was well worth it!
