When building a database-driven website there is plenty of things to consider but the loading speed of a website can lose your business traffic as well as ranking with Google.
That’s right, Google rewards good quality, relevant, authoritative fast websites. So it is essential that your website developers use industry standards compliant code that loads pages a speedily as possible.
A recent survey from WebCop show that 52% of your website visitors will not wait too long for your website to load. And the same survey also revealed that a large majority of business owners believe their websites loaded fast enough.
In the current economic climate it is imperative for every business to make sure their company website gives the right first impression, including a professional look, great functionality and pages that load quickly to keep the attention of its visitors.
Most businesses in the UK are now familiar with the importance of ranking high in Google and the other main search engines and therefore losing website visitors, and potential customers so cheaply is inexcusable.
- 52% of people click away from websites because they’re too slow
- 91% of website owners however, believe their site is fast enough
- 54% of website owners are unaware that Google rewards faster websites
That’s why Buzzin Fly uses MySQL database and PHP programming language by choice. It is powerful and secure, yet builds functionality with less code allowing pages to load much quicker than other similar databases and programming languages.
If developed correctly, MySQL and PHP, along with the valuable use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) will give you a faster, more successful company website that not only attracts web traffic, but keeps visitors longer.
