Hi.

Your site speed is ok on my side.
Usually speed issues with slow hosting or bandwidth

Hiya! Thanks for the response. Gidnetwork says my site takes more than 1.57s to load and Pingdom says time spent loading my images is 81%. Should i be worried about these? How can i reduce my overall image size?

All of those tests are being done to your computer and location. It loads just fine for me. You connection is slow I suspect.

Ranking has nothing to do with page load speed at all.

oh geez!  I am in the opposite opinion here -  I think Google does consider page load speed in the Page Ranking and has for a couple of years -  take a read here and see if you agree I am thinking it does matter.

Their new algorithm is now putting much more weight on mobile compatibility than any other factor. I'm about to write an article on that fact, it'll start on April 27th.

I may have spoken out of turn on speed, yes it does matter, but AbanteCart passes all their tests. "rachelagboola" is experiencing something other than website response with the slowness issue.

While it is important to have a fast loading site, the speed at which it loads has little weight when compared to keyword structure, h1 structure and the keyword rich URL.
