How can you improve SEO Speed:

  • you probably saw in the Focus Pages section or in the Daily SEO Goals that you need to improve SEO Speed.

What does SEO Speed even mean?

It is the loading time for the page, which means:

  • when a user accesses a URL from your site: how long does it take for that URL to load in the user’s browser?

The lower the SEO Speed score is, the better, because it means that you’re not keeping your customer waiting.

Which is a super important SEO Signal for Google.

The first thing you need to do in order to improve your SEO Speed is to make your images quicker to load. Image loading times cause the biggest problems.
