Page speed prioritization

On the technical side, page speed has become a front-of-mind consideration for web developers this year. Google’s 2021 algorithm update makes speed a more important consideration than before for SEO. This also reflects users’ higher expectations for site speed performance since 53% of users will abandon a page that takes more than 3 seconds to load. Gone are the days of patiently waiting on loading screens.‍

Google PageSpeed Insights or Lighthouse are tools that can be used to assess your page speed optimization. There are also a few simple steps developers (or their platform of choice) can take to make sure pages load quickly like image optimization and deferred offscreen image loading. Limiting how many fonts you are using can help as well. You also want to avoid developing your pages on a platform that relies too heavily on plug-ins since that can have a big impact.
