Chapter 8. Why Speed is Important in SEO

The speed and performance of your Joomla! web site is one thing that can help you get better search engine ranking for your web site. Speed is not only important for your visitors, but is also a key factor for your Google rankings.

If you look at your Google webmaster warnings, there might be some warnings related to the speed of your web site. Google will tell you if your site was unreachable, gave a timeout, or a certain page had a very high loading time.

We will be looking at the following things that can help you improve the performance of your site:

  • Finding your slowdowns
  • Using the cache function of Joomla!
  • Looking for errors in log files
  • How to improve your images
