One of the pitfalls to the new Denver SEO website @ Sean Hakes.com was it’s slow load speed… Previous to now, our average load speed jumped up into 20’s at times.
So… exactly how important is site load speed? Very important.
This week we spent hours dissecting Sean Hakes.com and found things like “StatCounter” severally slowed down our website, not to mention plugins like W3 Total Cache (which is supposed to have the opposite effect) among other things. Since we implemented the changes we’ve been able to drastically reduce our overall page load to just over 8 seconds, and that’s just the beginning…
We’ll be releasing the full case study of our own in-house project soon.
