Your staff’s sanity
When editorial teams have to wait for their tools to reload or have to repeat steps due to platform hiccups, productivity takes a big hit.
Google uses Site Speed as an attribute that influences the order of their Search results. Slower sites tend to get less Search traffic.
Visitors' tolerance for slow page load times is surprisingly low. A second or two decrease in performance can drive bounce rates up tremendously.
Slow sites are a drag
VIP for the win
The VIP platform consistently performs at the top of the pack among enterprise managed WordPress hosts. Last year’s head-to-head test by third party Review Signal remarked about our performance:
“I'm not sure what WordPress.com VIP is running, but it put up the absolute fastest scores that I've seen by a wide margin. [...] They blew my test rig out of the water.”
And in 2018’s evaluation, Review Signal concluded that VIP is “delivering content the fastest on average around the world.” Of the 11 locations tested, we scored first for 9 of them, and second for the other 2.
