Waiting time? Max. 4 seconds…
Website visitors are not very patient, a web page has to be visible within a few seconds. Your visitors will leave your site if they have to wait too long.
40% of the visitors will abandon a site if they have to wait more than 4 seconds.
On the Internet you can find many tools that will indicate the load times of your web pages, for example: Pingdom or GTmetrix
Pingdom is an easy and free tool, just enter your URL (site address) and click the button ‘Start Test’. Wait for the results that will be displayed, you will see the number of seconds waiting time before the page is entirely loaded. Below this you will find the test results in detail, you can find the exact time of each individual component of your page.
