    If you are using wp you should use WP Super Cache. there are many possibilities to use cache or even to configure CDN (content delivery netowork) all this in very friendly wizard

    1. don't take cheap webhosting, the load speed won't be good. Use a VPS like vultr or digitalOcean. You can even start with a free AWS
    2. use a wordpress plugin (if you use wordpress). WP Spuer Cache or WP-rocket (for me, it's the best one)
    3. focus also on the backlinking (internal/external)

    Loading slowly is completely a drawback for your website, not only for ranking but also for the user experiences. So focus on that surely.

    And there are some great tutorials out there about reducing page loading time. But if you feel uncomfortable, you can contact with me. I've some professional services about that :)

    You can use Lazyload for example if you have alot of images. This will speed up the initial pageload because the images will only load when you scroll down to each image.

    Don't fill it with an insane amount of ads, that's a great way to make even my i7 struggle on chrome

    I've never used a VPS for hosting but im thinking about getting one.

    One of my sites is getting about 450-500 UV/day and growing. Google analytics is telling me the average load time is 12+ seconds but when I test it on websites like pingdom its about 3-6 seconds, either way its not good lol

    What a good VPS for me?
