Your site is slow?
What is an acceptable loading speed?
The main metric we rely on is loading speed.
This represents the average loading time required for a page to be displayed in its entirety on your screen.
2.5 sec. and less
Since the implementation of Core Web Vitals by our friend Google, they recommend that each page of a website be loaded within 2.5 seconds or less. Since this change, made in May 2021, compliance with Core Web Vitals has become a search engine ranking factor (direct impact on the SEO natural referencing).
