Rapid Hosting Can Boost Business 300%

18 July 2009 by Stephen McNamara

Google agrees with UKFast that speed is vital to deliver the experience web users demand. In fact, Google is now so keen that we all do our bit to ensure the internet runs as quickly as possible that it rewards fast sites with higher organic rankings and has launched a helpful website that gives tips on how to improve your website speed.

Therefore, fast hosting can deliver high Google rankings and extremely happy customers. And that means repeat customers, more traffic and bigger profits. And if you host with the fastest around you get a competitive edge on your rivals. An edge than could deliver 300% sales growth in a week. Just ask UKFast client Top Furniture.

After switching to a rapid UKFast server on the high speed UKFast network Top Furniture experienced a phenomenal 300% increase in revenues in just seven days. And they are not the only ones to experience impressive growth with a super-speedy UKFast solution.

All Join On increased site traffic 300% inside the first two months after switching to UKFast, while Lets Stay Together improved to a page 1 Google ranking within six weeks of launch thanks to its faster website.

And don’t forget what Google has to say on the subject:
Google states that:

  • A 0.5 second delay in the page load speed of your website can reduce traffic by 20%.
  • A 30% increase in page load speed can result in a 30% increase in customers.
  • It’s fair to say that a speedy site will rank better (it’s true for adverts, as well).
