Page speed significantly affects users' experience and SEO ranking of your website. The recommended page speed by Google should be under 0.5 second. If your page speed is higher than that, your SEO ranking and users' experience will negatively be affected. So, how do you keep your page speed at the ideal range or even faster?

We did a case study with one of our clients. Their website is on WordPress and loaded slower than they expected. Before we made some configurations in their website, we checked their page speed. Their pages loaded around 408 ms. Although this was under the ideal speed recommended by Google, our client wanted it to be faster.

So, we did our job. We first uninstalled and deleted the plugins they were not using. We then set up a caching program to ensure images, browser, HTML, and JavaScript were seamlessly minimized. We also modified the PHP package selection to enhance the speed of PHP.

After making all these configurations, we tested the page speed of our client's website, and the result was impressive! It went down to 158 ms from 408 ms! Our client was extremely happy and so were we.

What I wanted to share with you is to make sure you define how fast your website should load when you are working with a web hosting provider. A good hosting company can provide you with impressive results. If they can't, you know you need to look for another.

Are you sure about this, my website is targeting for a country and on google page speed it got 2.3 for mobile for and 5.5 for desktop but more keywords are still on top 1 Google search result.

Their pages loaded around 408 ms. Although this was under the ideal speed recommended by Google, our client wanted it to be faster.
408 ms is very fast and if you improve, it will be no more.

Just curious, what did you improve on your site? images or installed a caching plugin?

Average internet users don’t wait beyond 2-3 seconds to get a website loaded on their browsers. So make sure that your website must be faster when it comes to SEO. One important factor behind website loading speed is your web host. Choose the server location of your website that is nearer to your target audience.

You cannot blame your hosting provider if you can't do a good job while developing your website. There is only so much that your hosting provider can do. There are a lot of things that matter when it comes to optimizing the website. Even the distance between your visitor and server location matters. If your user is in America and Your Server is in Europe, the initial response time of the server will be around 80ms or even more. If the users are accessing the site from Europe it will be around 8ms. So don't judge any host based on your website until you know that your website is well-optimized. Which every developer and website owner thinks always. What you did with the website and the result you got, it seems it was a very small website. And what you did was only basics, I can even write a book on how to optimize a website. There is that much to it.

The perfect combination of speed for your website is

Fast hosting, if possible it is ssd or nvme ssd.
Optimized images
if you use wordpress cache plugin like wp rocket
Worldwide dns, such as aws route 53 or similar.
Optimized content on your website
Site encrypted with ssl
Web load less than two seconds

The above will improve user experience and SEO ranking.

My websites load under 2 seconds and I see that that's great for me. I don't think I can optimize it under 1 second or like yours.

It entirely depends on the website and the content. For instance, if a website has too many ads, then the loading time could be huge.
