What’s In This Episode of the Website Wednesday Podcast

Your website… and your visitors have a need for speed! Slow websites are a bad user experience and negatively affect search engine optimization (SEO).

In this episode, Liz will share several different ways you can speed up your website. From using web optimized font files to finding the balance between beauty and function on your small business website. Not sure how fast (or slow) your website is?  Liz has a great suggestion for a free tool that will test your page speed for you. 


Key Takeaways

  1. Fonts can slow down your site – make sure you’re using web optimized font files or woff files.
  2. Use Google Page Speed Insights to test your webpage speeds – be sure to test every page you’d like to rank for.
  3. Don’t forget to think mobile first! Your mobile page speed matters even more than your desktop. You want your mobile pages to load in 3 seconds or less.
