Google first announced that website speed would become a ranking factor way back in 2010, but yet there’s been no evidence of it clearly having an impact. So to find out if speed and performance do indeed affect rankings, Delete’s SEO R&D team ran an experiment. They wanted to know if rankings could be ‘hacked’ by improving speed and performance and if they could, what it would take to do it. In this talk Polly shares exactly what her team did and more importantly what they achieved. From migrating to HTTP2 and advanced image manipulation, to ‘hacks’ for the handling of critical resources, all the crucial tactics involved that were needed to achieve a top performance score will be covered with real examples.
