WEBTARANTULA ADVICE: The website load time must be as low as possible. High load time will make website visitors left your website and go somewhere else. High load time also will have negative SEO impact, because the search engine crawlers will not be able to crawl a lot of webpages. If your load time is high you could consider changing hosting provider, or in case of very sophisticated websites - analyse why site is so slow and employ technologies like website and data caching.
