Webspeed is important, right? All the high traffic sites and top 1,000 e-commerce stores know about it and spend a lot of time and money on optimizing and monitoring their online properties.
Case studies and facts like:
- Amazon loses 1% of sales for every 100ms it takes their site to load
- Mozilla shaved 2.2 seconds off and increased download conversions by 15.4%
- Google using site speed in web search ranking
are not new news to the folks mentioned above, but they represent only a fraction of website owners and businesses out there.
We have started the SpeedAwarenessMonth for the other 95% to raise awareness about the importance of web speed, to show as many webmasters, developers, e-commerce merchants as possible how to measure, improve and monitor their websites or applications. Throughout the SpeedAwarenessMonth we will provide the best tips that are necessary to make their websites fly.
We will also give away a bundle of heavily discounted tools and services. Currently we are looking for content providers, so If you want to participate as a product sponsor or write a guest post. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am very passionate about this project and I hope that as many people as possible will join to make the web a faster place!
Please contact me with any suggestions, feedback or ideas that you have.
