An Affordable CDN Can Significantly Speed Up Your Website

What is a CDN, you ask? A content delivery network (CDN) is a system of servers that network and  deliver your website’s content to your viewer, based on the geographic location of the viewer.  The closer the viewer is to the server, the faster the delivery.  And, a CDN offers several servers geographically placed that are available to your viewer.

If your website is running slowly, a CDN can help.  Many to the top brand’s websites are using CDNs as a way to deliver their content fast.  And fast is what your viewer not only prefers, but pretty much demands these days.

A CDN can boost your search ranking.  When it comes to search engine optimization page speed is a very important factor as it pertains to page rankings. Most search engines consider the page loading time in their formulas. Google loves fast websites and announced in 2010 that website speed would begin to affect search engine rankings. The faster your website is, the better chance you have moving up in search engine page rankings.

A CDN is affordable. It is a small investment considering the speed increase your website will experience.

A CDN typically increases sales conversion rates. It has been proven time and time again that boosting your speed can increase your conversions. This is mainly due to the fact that you are providing a better user experience. According to LoadStorm, 46% of users will not return to a poorly performing website. And 74% of users will abandon after waiting 5 seconds for a mobile site to load.
