Regardless of the type of site you’re running, making sure that it loads quickly and feels fast should be among of your primary goals.
A fast site means a better visitor experience. Shorter load times can lead to lower bounce rates, happier readers, more page views, a healthier Time on Page, and — if you’re running a store — improved sales.
Because Google uses site speed in its ranking algorithm, it also has a direct influence on your SEO. Fast load times can result in higher rankings and ultimately lead to increased organic traffic.
Currently, only files included in WordPress core and the Jetpack plugin can be served by our CDN.
Ready to take your new site accelerator for a spin?
