Page Speed Optimization
Page speed is often confused with site speed, which is actually the page speed for a sample of page views on a site. Page speed can be easily described in either "page load time" which is the time it takes to fully display the content on a specific page or "time to first byte" which is how long it takes for your browser to receive the first byte of information from the webserver.
SEO Best Practices
Page speed is also important to user experience. Pages with a longer load time tend to have higher bounce rates and lower average time on page. Longer load times have also been shown to negatively affect conversions.

We work with WordPress websites regardless of where they are hosted.
We know and understand that WordPress websites have varying needs and there are other factors involved.
