One of my blog readers asked me how to check website speed with a free tool. That was a good question. I think every webmaster should check website speed regularly.
Website speed is a very important thing. Becuase slow loading website is responsible for low search rank and traffic. According to pro webmasters and bloggers, website page speed time should be maximum 4 seconds.
This is absolutely true that Web readers close browser button if website speed too much. So you should always try to keep page speed up to 4 seconds. That means a website should be open at this time.
