Does theme loading speed effect SEO?!
#1
If a site's theme is heavy and takes a lot of time to load. Does it mean that it effect the site's SEO negatively?

Many webmasters say that it has effect. But yet I see a lot of site who takes a lot of time to load still manages to rank very high.

Effect yes but only a little.

Actually a site remains unaffected SEO wise unless it says a loading time out.

User experience is a factor though but it is a small one.Tongue

If the user is impatient then yes, they would probably go to a much better site with the same content.

Yes, loading speed is important for SEO, but a perfect PageSpeed Insights score is not. As long as your website loads in around 3 seconds, you should be fine with most users.

There is no such thing as 3 second rule.

Heavy theme or light theme doesn't matter. Many sites takes a load of time for an actual user to do something in it. But that doesn't mean they don't rank well. Take Instagram for instance.

The speed may affect the user experience but it doesn't mean that website can not get ranked well in SERP!!
