Blazing Speed: SHOP.COM Has Third Fastest Mobile Site Load Time!
To say that we put a lot on emphasis on utilizing and developing cutting edge technology for SHOP.COM would be a serious understatement. In fact, I’m very proud to say SHOP.COM just ranked as the third fastest mobile website for all online retailers!
As you can see in this great article from Internet Retailer, SHOP.COM’s mobile site outshined nearly every other retailer in the monthly mobile performance index provided by Catchpoint Systems. The average webpage load time for the top mobile retail sites is around 2.64 seconds, so the fact that our pages load at a blazing fast clip of 1.02 seconds means we are running laps around the competition. We even beat out Apple and Amazon who ranked #4 and #5 respectively!
Overall this is a great accomplishment for us and a remarkable achievement that took a lot of brilliant people working together to accomplish. A special thank you to Steve Ashley, Kevin Curley, and our talented mobile team for helping us push the envelope and deliver the best shopping experience on the web. This is a tremendous accomplishment and one that all UnFranchise Owners should be very proud of.
While we are thrilled and honored to rank in at #3, next time we are coming for #1!!!
