BigCommerce Speed Optimization
When it comes to the page speed, we also look at a number of performance indicators and metrics. For example, we don’t just look at the full page load time, but also at the time to first byte and time to first paint. These two factors aren’t measuring the time it takes for the full page to load, but rather how long it takes for the page to first render as well as how long it takes for it to be first ‘usable’.
When optimizing for page speed, we take a methodical approach to achieving the best possible load times. We start by taking care of the “low hanging fruit”, or the easiest updates that will have the biggest impact. Once we implement these changes, we then run another round of tests and then continue to implement additional changes as we go. This allows us to better identify the true issues facing your store as well as to debug in a safer, more efficient way.
As page speed and load times are a very important factor in your websites search engine rankings and ultimately your organic traffic, making sure that your BigCommerce website loads quickly is paramount to success.
