Fast Semantic Websites When Substandard Just Won't Do
Sub@omic websites are designed to load quickly on any browser and on any platform.
Websites are written using a page description language called HTML which we're sure you knew already. It is true that the more HTML is used in the creation and delivery of a web page then the longer the webpage is going to take to download. The longer you make your customers wait the more impatient they'll become.
We code our websites by hand - each line of HTML is written by us knowing full-well that the more efficient our code is the faster your website will be.
It's not only your Customers that'll thank you for your high performance website but Google will thank you too. You'll know that Google sends out robots (also known as spiders or crawlers) to analyse websites and calculate PageRank, well the less code your website presents Google to wade through the more likely Googlebot will be to make a return visit because it'll find it easy to understand what your website means - in other words, your website will be semantic.
In a comparison test, we Googled "wordpress web design company" and visited the company listed first and compared their website homepage to ours. Firstly, the point of the exercise was not to claim that one website was bad and one was good - merely to select at random a typical website for comparison. We saved the HTML of the home pages of both website and found the following:
No matter how you look at it or whichever way you cut it, our websites are both smaller and faster than anything Wordpress seems to be able to deliver. To put this into some perspective, if you're working on the basis of the 8 second rule, the download speed of the Sub@omic website on that vital first-time visit is visible over 5 times faster and results in a visit of nearly 5 times longer than the comparison website.
