Why Load Test?

Having a fast website is a key to commercial success on the Internet. A slow web site will increase your bounce rate, reduce your rank in search engines & reduce conversions rates. All of which in the end means less revenue.

A slow site means increased bouncerate, decreased search rank and decreased conversion rate.

In studies published in 2009 Akamai and Forrester found that the average visitor expects a web page to load in no more than two seconds. This benchmark value is gradually shrinking asusers have faster connections to the Internet. Studies also show that milliseconds of increase in load time can significantly reduce page views, revenue and also the disadvantage of the site’s Google ranking.

Web page usability expert Jakob Nielsen claim that a web page has to load within a second to provide the visitor the feeling of an immediate response. Users will then act intuitively with the website and does not reflect to the fact that one is interacting with a computer that can be positioned thousands of miles away. Visitors who encounter slow websites feel they have lost control of the interaction.

When the website is slow to browse through, the user is reluctant to clicking at objects in the site with the risk that one should have to wait more for the pages to load. What is remarkable is just how small delays have a negative impact on a web site conversion rates. And how easily a visitor loses patience and leaves for a competing website to carry out its task.

Since 2010, Google has included site speed as part of its search ranking algorithm. It means that fast sites gets a higher ranking in its search.

These are some of the reasons that make it extremely important that organizations verify the quality of response times on their websites. Quality assurance and optimization is becoming an increasingly important component in the battle for customers on the Internet.
