Here’s a questions for the devs and SEO guru’s … If we are looking at themes to help speed up the front end dev and design time on certain projects do we need to take into consideration the load speed times? Google states that it should be 3 secs though all of the themes I have checked are coming in at 5 sec +. I know other things are taking into consideration, like accessibility, quality of code, responsiveness, keywords, etc. so is it such a big deal if the load is slightly longer? Thoughts
Also - Can anyone recommend a reliable speed test?
