Website speed is now one of the factors considered by google for their ranking purpose. According to them only 1% of the sites are affected by it. So this might not be considered as a very important thing for your blog for seo. But this is some thing that affects the user experience.
Would any body like to wait up for a slow loading website? Of course we hate to wait for such sites and there is less chance the visitor will browse through other posts in that site. You might have every other thing in your blog to stick down the visitor and reduce the bounce rate. But you might be wondering for the reason when your bounce rate gets reduced even after implementing things like related posts, post interlinking etc. Here comes the important factor the speed of the site.
From my personal experience i was able to reduce the bounce rate of my site from 75% to 68% and my page views increased after making my site load fast.
My previous load time was around 12 – 15 seconds and after speed optimization the load time is now under 4 seconds! & More over i am on a shared hosting and haven’t used any of the cdn services too!
After learning a lot of optimization techniques i decided to put some of the basic things together as a Speed up wordpress post.
