Here at GoldeComm we know that faster site speed and faster load times lead to higher conversion rates. If you have a website, we know that you want more conversions. So we invited our partners from Google to team up and talk about the secret recipe for lightning fast site speed.
As a Google Premier Partner we are constantly collaborating with their team of experts on our journey to page speed optimization. This particular visit was extra special because Claire, Conor and Zeeniya, some of Google’s extremely well versed front end developers came to GoldenComm and held a friendly hackathon competition with us!
We broke up into groups to see who could make the biggest improvement to site performance and metrics in one afternoon. Two of our awesome front end developers - Matthew Rasmussen and Jason Chen - won first place for their revamped version of a client provided site into AMP. They took the Lighthouse performance score from 23/100 up to 83/100, and the page size from 12MB down to 0.76MB while maintaining great image quality-- wow! Talk about optimization.
Thank you Google, Claire, Conor and Zeeniya for the visit, we look forward to continuing to work with you guys in improving page load times and site performance.
