How Faster Page Speed Can Impact Your Business

In the past several years, the number of online searches via mobile devices has rapidly grown and now outpaces desktop searches. Google has responded by encouraging companies to optimize their sites for mobile traffic. Not only could this help a brand’s organic rankings, but the increased user experience also has the potential to grow online revenue.

How, you ask? Being mindful of mobile friendliness and page speed performance will instill confidence and trust with your customers. And that can pay dividends.
