Speed Kills…Your Rankings

One thing you have to consider when building out your site is page load and speed.

So, pick a solid hosting company and take it easy on the pictures and you will be fine. To test your site’s speed, check this out. If you need a new host, check out Hostgator (affiliate link). If you need a way to reduce your image sizes, check out this free online tool. Can’t see the video, click here.
