recommended best site load times

Can you please tell me what is the recommended best load time for wordpress sites? buddypress sites?

    Hi Corn,

    Recommended times are as fast as possible. Certainly no slower than a couple seconds or so to fully load the page. But some features and plugins can affect the page load speed, so it's best to only activate plugins that you are actually using.

    Hope this helps

    In terms of user-abandonment, your page should ideally load faster than 1-2 seconds. As Vaughan suggests the faster that you can achieve the better for your users (and Google's search index ranking, theoretically).

    For a user to perceive an action as "instantaneous" Google have done studies which recommend 100 to 200 miliseconds as the maximum response-time, but this is more for the UI of a loaded page/app rather than loading of pages off the server.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
