Website performance is a sometimes-overlooked element of user experience, and is becoming more and more crucial as website visitors are increasingly browsing on devices other than computers. In the ecommerce space, fast page load times can mean more products are added to a cart and the checkout conversion rate goes up since buyers can quickly move through the checkout process.
For media websites, readers are encouraged to click to more articles when they have a good on-site experience, increasing page views and advertising revenue. Faster page load times also improve bounce rates and SEO for search engines like Google.
