Website Speed Is Now A Part Of Google’s Core Algorithm

 

A Strong SEO Ranking Factor

 

  • In July 2018, after months of alerting webmasters, Google rolled out a “Speed Update” to its core algorithm.
  • Google doesn’t give you credit for a fast WordPress site but punishes slower sites in its rankings.
  • It makes sense. Today’s mobile users dislike slow websites and are likely to “bounce” back to Google.com if a website doesn’t finish loading on a mobile phone within 3 – 4 seconds (even though the industry average is around 7 seconds).
  • A fast bounce back alerts Google that the website either did not answer the user search query or there may be a technical reason the user returned to Google so quickly.
  • Google gives points to sites where a user “dwells” (or spends an above average time on).  It is one sign that the user has found the answer to their search or may ever have discovered additional, relevant, and useful information they hadn’t thought of.
  • Google does not use your Google Analytics data but has their own internal analytics for their site.
  • A fast WordPress website is great for user experience, especially mobile phone users who now make up 65% Google’s searchers. Luckily, there are many free and premium plug-ins to make a WordPress site faster and improve SEO.
  • You can test the Google Page Speed Score by visiting a site such as GTMetrix with has all the features you need at no cost.
  • If you run the short test and find out your WordPress site has below average speed, I have years of professional experience improving site speed and SEO.

WordPress Delivers Excellent SEO

  • WordPress SEO is simple. When you build a website with WordPress, you do not have to know any programming language. No knowledge of PHP, HTML, CSS or SQL is required. WordPress is easy to learn, set-up, and create content. You can build and launch a professional looking WordPress website in a day or even a few hours. But you’ll need someone to fine tune your website to optimize your WordPress SEO and site speed.
  • In 2018 WordPress turned 15 years old and now has thousands of loyal PHP programmers who have contributed to its development by building sophisticated themes and plugins anyone can install easily and utilize.
  • There are hundreds of thousands of ready-made free and low-cost WordPress plugins and themes that perform very great functions to make your website look professional and bring you more traffic.
  • With WordPress, you can launch a fast-loading and mobile- website from day one. There are plugins designed to help you compress images, minify code, cache files, compress images and create speed enhancements.
  • The speed of a website is a strong ranking signal for Google. Users do not like slow websites.  A fast site is great for the user experience, mobile device users, and SEO. Google launched a “Speed Update” in July 2018 that punishes slow sites. Google has analyzed the data and knows users stay longer on websites that load fast.
  • WordPress is made for mobile themes and easy to make mobile-friendly. Google has rolled out a “mobile-first” update because 65% of searches come from mobile phones.
  • With knowledge and skills, WordPress SEO is do-able, but it takes some time. WordPress was built from the ground-up to be an SEO friendly site.  With plugins like Yoast SEO to enhance the technical search engine optimization capabilities of WordPress, you can finally rank high in Google.
