1. Why should I be concerned with my site’s speed?
Your users’ experience in terms of navigating your site should be a great reason. Users have many options when it comes to consuming content on the internet, and a slow performing website will frustrate your users, sending them elsewhere. A faster and more responsive website will keep them more engaged and focused on your content, rather than waiting for scripts and images to load.
Another reason is for SEO. Google has announced they are using page speed in their ranking algorithm.
This means that faster performing sites may rank higher in search engine results. As developers and marketers look to optimize their sites, page speed should be among the top optimizations to consider.
2. My site loads pretty fast… why should I change it?
It’s all about efficiency and optimization. Your site may be loading fast, but it could be faster if you take some of the best practices into consideration. You even might be able to reduce bandwidth and hosting costs by minimizing your footprint.
3. Now that I have my scores; What do I do now?
Start optimizing your site! Sarvotarzan provides explanations for each recommendation, and gives you actionable advice. The recommendations in the table you see are ordered in terms of which have the most impact on your site. Fixing items at the top of your list can have a bigger impact on your overall score.
Make sure you fully understand the recommendations before you begin though. Though many of them are applicable to your site, some are not. The recommendations are meant to be generic, best practices – you don’t need to fix everything.
Need help? Sarvotarzan’s developer, Sarvotarzan.com, can handle all of your speed optimization requirements.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
4. My server code is optimized. Is this enough?
5. Why are my PageSpeed and YSlow scores different?
PageSpeed and YSlow use different recommendations when analyzing URLs. Each service analyzes a page using a set of rules that they believe are most relevant to page speed and performance. Most of the rules overlap or are very similar to each other, but in general your scores should be comparable.
Visit our Recommendations page for a list of each service’s best practices.
6. I have a * type of site. Why is it asking me to do X?
The post-analysis recommendations are not always relevant to your site (EG. You do not need a CDN if you’re running a small website or blog). This is why it’s important to truly understand the recommendations and how they can affect your site. Not everything will apply to your site.
Visit our Recommendations page to learn more about each recommendation.
7. I don’t have control over X, why is it asking me to fix it?
8. Do I have to fix everything?
No, not at all! Start with the recommendations at the top. The report organizes recommendations in order of what has the most impact on your score.
Realize that 100% is not realistic, and a green score generally means your site is speed optimized. Remember that these tools are meant to be used for a wide variety of site types, and so some recommendations may not apply to your site.
9. How much of an impact will doing this have on my search engine ranking?
In general, there is no definitive answer one way or the other. Google has indicated they want a faster web, and to be able to “flip through sites” visually (like a magazine), which requires sites rendering fast and caching well. Google has also stated:
“While site speed is a new signal, it doesn’t carry as much weight as the relevance of a page.”
But don’t do it for SEO, do it for your users!
