Fix Your Website Speed for Greater Results Online

No-one likes to wait for a slow-loading website. Did you know that if your site takes longer than 3 seconds to load, you can lose up to 40% of your traffic? Your customers will likely become impatient and frustrated, then leave for another website.

Here at Kia Ora, we specialise in site speed optimisation for a range of online Ecommerce platforms. Setting up your online store is one thing – but making sure it’s fast, responsive and user-friendly is another. A fast-loading website is essential for online success and ensuring a seamless user experience for your customers. You’ll also increase your conversions, leads and revenue opportunities, and reduce bounce rates.

As part of our services we optimise your website performance for greater sales and functionality, making sure you don’t lose any more customers. We’ll look at a series of critical factors to make sure your site is up to speed, such as:

  • Optimising your Core Web Vitals SEO for success
  • Compressing your images, banners and assets
  • Choosing a theme or template that’s fast to load and won’t hinder the loading process
  • Removing any unnecessary apps and plug-ins that are slowing down your website

Whether you use WordPress, Shopify, BigCommerce, Contentful or Webflow, our site speed developers have the skills and know-how to gear up your store for greater success.

Core Web Vitals: The Key to Site Speed Improvement

To fix your website speed, our team will assess your website’s Core Web Vitals. These are a series of metrics that Google uses to analyse your online performance and customer experience. The metrics play a critical part in how Google determines your search ranking online. These include:
  • Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): Measures how long it takes for your website to load
  • First Input Delay (FID): How quickly your site responds to user interaction
  • Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): CLS measures your website’s visual stability and whether your site shifts around as it loads.

Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it

So happy with our results. With our organic web visitors more than doubling over 5 months. With random sales coming through that we have no paid advertising going to. And always great to chat to Dan & Ben for some extra inspiration.
We’ve only been working with Kia Ora for 3 months so far but they have exceeded my expectations . We have known Dan for many years and he knows his stuff. Only wish we had chosen to work with Dan earlier instead of some of the other cowboys in the industry.
In an industry where smokes and mirrors are the standard, we have been searching for a great SEO company to work with. One that focuses on results rather than fabricated numbers. After speaking with Dan once we saw that he knew his stuff and are glad to have finally found a SEO agency we are confident in.
The accountability and responsiveness of the Kia Ora Digital team makes the agency great. They are incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of SEO and Page Speed Optimization. Incredibly professional all round.
Highly recommend for ecommerce growth and professional SEO expertise. Working with Dan & Ben has been phenomenal, they know what they're doing and are easy to work with. Thanks guys!
FAQ’s

Common SEO Questions

Speed optimisation in SEO refers to the process of making your website load faster. A fast-loading website not only provides a better user experience but also plays a crucial role in your website’s search engine ranking.

Website speed directly impacts SEO in several ways. Google has confirmed that site speed is a ranking factor for its search engine.

If your website loads slowly, it can lead to a higher bounce rate as users tend to leave sites that don’t load within a few seconds. This can negatively impact your site’s ranking in search engine results.

Additionally, a slow-loading website can decrease the number of pages Google can crawl using their allocated crawl budget, which could negatively impact your site’s indexation.

Speed is important for SEO because it influences user experience, conversion rates, and search engine rankings.

A fast-loading website helps keep visitors engaged, reduces bounce rates, and encourages them to interact more with your site, leading to better conversion rates. Speed is also a ranking factor for Google, so a faster website can help improve your visibility in search results, driving more organic traffic to your site.

There are several ways to optimise your page speed, including the following:

  • Compress Images: Large images can significantly slow down your website. Use tools to compress images without losing quality.
  • Minify Files: Minify your CSS, JavaScript, and HTML files to reduce their size and improve load times.
  • Leverage Browser Caching: This allows a user’s browser to store copies of your site’s individual pages, so it doesn’t need to retrieve the entire page every time the user visits your site.
  • Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN): A CDN stores copies of your site at various points around the world to reduce the distance data has to travel to reach your users.
  • Optimise Your Code: Remove unnecessary characters, whitespace, and code comments to improve your site’s speed. 

While these are some of the common methods, speed optimisation can be quite technical and complex, which is why it’s often beneficial to work with professionals like Kia Ora Digital.
