Even in mid of 2015, Google made it official that if your website speed is slow i.e loading time is more, than your blog/website can be penalized.

Must Read :-  

Let us understand the same with an example, Just try to open www.google.com and after that just try to open www.yahoo.com

Both websites I guess doesn't need any introduction, but as you all know google loads pretty faster than any other website in the world.

Yahoo will load very slow, they might need to work on it. It loads slow because they load the whole website on the home page only which contains everything i.e top news, entertainment etc kind of stuff.

Where as google just loads one logo with one search box that's it. This is really an smart strategy which we should observe and learn.

Half of the people in the world open google.com, just to check internet speed :)

I also read 1 analytics once about eCommerce websites. As you guys know they made thousand's of dollars daily.

Amazon company revealed that, they made extra profit of $1.6 million dollars in a year just by improving site speed by 1 second.

So, you can imaging in today's worlds visitors are in rush. If you website doesn't opened in 3-4 seconds they will leave and eventually you will face huge loss.

As you know,

Visitors are traffic and traffic is revenue !
