How Mobile Site Speed Affects Your Google Rank

Google recently announced that mobile site speed will be more important than ever when it comes to ranking.

On July 9, Google updated a previously released statement to say, “Studies show that people really care about the speed of a page. Although speed has been used in ranking for some time, that signal was focused on desktop searches. Today we’re announcing that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches.”

This “Speed Update” will only affect pages that deliver slow user experience, but may not effect slow pages with useful content.

Because our mission at Sparq Designs has always been to form relationships between people and brands, we believe in helping brands improve their mobile web presence. If you’d like to see if your mobile site is at jeopardy to lose rankings due to site speed, we will audit it for you free of charge. Please fill out the form here (don’t forget your email!) and we will follow up with a site speed audit and other areas of mobile opportunity.

There is no obligation to sign up for our services – we’re simply here to help. We hope you take advantage of this service and that you continue to find the best ways to connect with your audience.

Happy ranking!
