Why is My Website Slow? What Causes Slow Page Load Times?

Why is the website slow?User experience is the basis for competition in the digital services world. A slow website means you’re potentially losing money and customers.

  • A 1-second delay in page response can result in 7% reduction in conversions, according to a recent study. If an e-commerce site is making $100,000/day, a 1-second delay could potentially cost the site $2.5 million in lost sales annually.
  • 79% shoppers who are dissatisfied by website performance are less likely to buy from the same site again. This leaves your brand, reputation and revenue negatively affected.

Slow page load time directly affects your bottom line. You must be able to track what pages your users are accessing, from where, how long it takes to load the page, whether users are seeing any errors and why.
