What Is Website Response Time?

Website response time is the time it takes for a webpage to load after clicking on a link. It's usually measured in milliseconds and is affected by a number of factors, including the type of connection you have, your location, and the server's load.

A slow response time can cause frustration for users and can lead to them abandoning your website. To ensure that your site loads quickly, make sure you optimize your images and scripts, minimize HTTP requests, and use a content delivery network.
