A faster FT.com

A faster FT.com | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
The speed of the site negatively impacts a user’s session depth, no matter how small the delay. Slow sites also have a detrimental effect on the number of articles people read. Largely, the slower the site, the greater the effect. This trend is borne out over time and typically worsens with continued delays. The two anomalies to this general trend appear to be people who are highly engaged with FT.com and mobile users, both of whom seem less deterred by a short-term drop in performance. The data suggests, both in terms of user experience and financial impact, that there are clear and highly valued benefits in making the site even faster. From this research we’ve chosen to invest even more time in making every aspect of the new FT.com website even faster over the coming months.
