Mobile responsiveness and site speed are among the key ranking factors considered by search engines. The longer it takes for a website to load, the lesser are the chances of a conversion happening on the website. The average page load times have greatly come down since Google introduced Pagespeed Insights and started focusing on page load times of websites. Webmasters, bloggers, affiliate marketers and anyone who has an online presence and is trying to generate revenue online, are focusing now on the site speed of their websites since it is one of the major factors that could make a dent in the revenue.
