Munday Taylor Lamont got in touch with us and asked us to provide them with website maintenance and search engine optimisation. A Hereford based company specialising in plumbing, heating and kitchen requirements. The first thing we did was to run a website analysis through GTMetrix – a tool to determine the performance of websites.
After several optimisation methods, we significantly improved their PageSpeed score, reduced the total page size and requests, resulting in a much faster load time.
Website speed is a ranking signal and has been since an algorithm update in 2010. Research has also shown that Google may be measuring TTFB when it comes to rankings, so having a well optimised website in terms of loading speed is crucial to gaining higher search engine result positions.
