Why is Page speed important in regards to SEO?
Google wants to offer the user of the their search engine the best results.
The best results means that what you search for is matched, but also the speed when browsing. Google has changed the algorithms so a website is scored not only on optimization but also on the performance from when you browses from a mobile or desktop.
Studies shows that users that experience load times longer than 3 seconds are more likely to abandon the webpage, specially from browsing from a mobile. An abandoned visitor will hurt pagerank in the Google calculation.
In 2017 not only content and links are to be taking into consideration but also the speed.
