  20. 20. Walmart also found… Converted shoppers were served pages that were 2X faster than pages served to non-converted shoppers. Non-buyers were served category pages that were 2-3 seconds slower than category pages served to buyers. For every 100 milliseconds of improvement, incremental revenue increased by up to 1%.

  23. 23. But that’s not my site
  24. 24. Conversion rate barely decreases when load times for “checkout” pages degrade
  25. 25. Conversion rate shrinks by about 50% when load time for “browse” pages increases from 1 to 6 seconds
  26. 26. Do you know how performance affects different pages on your site?
  27. 27. What is the Conversion Impact Score? The Conversion Impact Score (CIS) is a relative score that ranks page groups by their propensity to negatively impact conversions due to high load times. For each page group, the Conversion Impact Score is calculated using the proportion of overall requests that are associated with that group, along with the Spearman Ranked Correlation between its load times and number of conversions. The Conversion Impact Score will always be a number between -1 and 1, though scores much greater than zero should be very rare. The more negative the score, the more detrimental to conversions that high load times for that page group are, relative to the other page groups.
