Episode 30: Site Speed – Least Fun Job Ever


Do you need to worry about site speed? How do you know if your site speed is bad? What impact does speed have in Google search rankings?

There is no denying that good site speed is going to lead to a better experience for your blog readers. Who wants to stick around on a site that takes forever to load or doesn’t look right when it does.

With the Google Page Experience update this year, it has had a new focus as sites scrambled to improve site speed. What can you do if it’s something your blog is struggling with?

Unfortunately, there’s no magic button to improve site speed and, in this episode, I walk you through the things you can do to have a big impact.

If you care about search traffic and giving your blog readers a great experience, you won’t want to miss this!
