If you own a website or a blog, then you must know how important it is to have a fast loading website. Any website that opens slow or has a low speed of loading is sure to lose traffic as none of the viewers like to wait much.
It is estimated that if a page doesn’t load within 5-8 seconds you will lose 1/3 of your visitors. Thus it is very important to keep the website fast so that it takes a little time to load and display the entire page properly. Checking a website for speed and load time is not difficult, all you need is a third party service that checks it.
There are many online websites that checks the speed and load time of a website, here is one that I liked the most. The web service is called selfseo and provides a free website speed checker. All you need to do is just enter the name of the website or the page to check, click the Check button and it will display the load time (in seconds) and the speed of the website.
Moreover if you have more than one website to check, you can provide at the max 10 websites to check the speed. This feature will help you compare the load time and the speed with the other sites and your competitors.
If you find your website to be slow enough, then you should consider changing the design and post styles of your website, site structure or just move to a new and fast loading server.
