Loading time of a page is a vital factor for any website’s user experience. Your search engine rankings are prominently based on the site loading speed.
47% percent of consumers expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less. 40% of the people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load. Also, a 1% delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions.
