The State of Web Readiness Report

The State of Web Readiness 2013

Website performance and stability problems directly impact the bottom line. While shoppers demand page load speeds in the milliseconds, most e-commerce sites have response times closer to 8 seconds - nearly twice the latency of other website categories studied.

This report combines the statistics of over 5000 performance tests with 500 survey responses to shed light on the importance of performance testing and the reasons e-retailers neglect to run such tests, despite the fact that increased latency almost always leads to a decrease in sales.
