Opening Irony Statement
If you paste our website URL into Google Pagespeed Insights, you may see results of slightly less than 100% despite the screenshots on this page showing that we can actually achieve it. The reason for this is that, from an SEO point of view, we've found (by experimentation) that we can actually rank better with a lower score, as the techniques we used to achieve the 100% scores are detrimental to other techniques that we currently employ for our website (and our clients' sites).
If you're one of those SEO geek types that's obsessed with website loading speeds (as you should be), and you run a Joomla website, then this post is for you. At Smart Digital Solutions, we're no different; we know it's one of those things that Google pays attention to, especially since mobile devices make up a huge percentage of the total number of searches made. With mobile search percentages set to climb even higher as the years progress, now's the time to pay attention to the loading speed of your website if you haven't already done so. With this in mind, Pagespeed Insights is certainly a good place to start if you're looking to improve the score of your Joomla website.
