How does faster load time affect search results?

For Google, and many other search engines, the user experience is #1. That means that search engines prefer to show users sites that load quickly and provide a good visitor experience.

While there are a ton of contributing factors that affect your search ranking, the power of page speed is real. The faster your page, the happier your people are, and the higher you rank in results!

Google has made it clear that the time it takes for your webpage to fully appear in the browser directly influences your rank on their search results pages. We can help you identify if you are meeting Google's standards and any fixes they recommend.

Your website also needs to be mobile-friendly

Google also looks at how well your page loads and appears on mobile devices, determining if you will appear in searches on mobile devices.

Local search engine optimization requires building a strong foundation so that new customers will seek you out, easily find you, and convert into loyal customers.

On the other, it's denial because they have no idea how to do it.  My Digital Agents' only focus is on the needs of local businesses and what can help them grow their business.  Improving your Local SEO helps you rank higher in local search results.  These non-paid organic searches provide "5X as much value from Google Search as they do from Google Ads" according to Google’s Economic Impact Report.
