Here’s the deal: page speed matters, but not in the way you might think.
From a people-perspective, all you need is for your website to FEEL fast. You can use a plugin like Nitropack to use lazyloading, which just makes everything at the top load lightning fast, while the rest of your page takes its time to load underneath.
But what about for SEO? Google penalizes slow sites, right? 🤔
Actually, speed is really more of a tie breaker between two otherwise weighted pages. Simply stripping down your website to the basics won’t necessarily help your rankings.
You don’t want to sacrifice user experience or the quality of your content in the pursuit of having a site that loads in under a second.
