Your online store takes the leading position on search terms, but traffic is getting smaller? You invest the same resources in promoting the online store, but the results are falling, and with them sales and profits? Tried to check site`s page load speed for the Google PageSpeedInsights test?
Perhaps it's all about the changes that have recently affected the market as well as the share of the distribution of user demand for segments and the audience in particular. The essence of the problem in a nutshell is a significant increase in the percentage of users from mobile devices and a decrease in the ranking of those resources that gain low scores in the opinion of PageSpeedInsights.
According to statistics for 2017, more than 50% of Internet users already use mobile devices for web surfing: smartphones and tablets. Google's search giant, of course, adapts to this movement in the market and, in order to satisfy the demand of its users, makes adjustments to its ranking algorithms of sites so that the TOPs have those online stores that are convenient for viewing and shopping from "mobile ". In addition, not so long ago we talked about the index of mobile-first.
How did Google evaluate your online store?
How to test and measure the work of the site? For an independent, objective assessment the mega-search engine has developed a special online test of speed analysis sites - Google PageSpeed Insights. To provide the site with a leading position in mobile and desktop search, your web resource should be adapted for fast downloading and convenient viewing from any device. Therefore, optimizing and speeding up the download of the online store site is of great importance.
As a result of testing, your site receives an appropriate rating:
- green zone - good (the web page scored more than 85 points, is quickly loaded and perfectly optimized for all types of devices);
- yellow zone - the resource requires correction (the page does not load fast enough, you need to make corrections in accordance with the recommendations)
- red zone is bad (the web page is not optimized at all and it is slow to load, corrections should be done immediately).
In addition to the speed of loading pages, the design of the Internet store is also estimated for convenience of the "mobile user".
Adaptive design or how to speed up the site for the convenience of users
Is it convenient for people to use your site? Is it equally good to perceive information from your site by viewing it on a computer monitor or smartphone?
