The importance of the speed of your WordPress website.
The speed of your website is incredibly important. Study after study clearly shows that users despise slow websites. And why wouldn’t they! In this era of information overload where our attention is being demanded from an almost infinite number of sources, we simply don’t have the patience to hang around a wait for a slow website to load.
