SSD – Your SEO Is Impacted By Your Website’s Server Speed

The rank of your website is impacted by many things. One thing often not considered is the speed of the server. Small business SEO can be significantly impacted by the speed of a server.

We offer our clients some of the fastest server speeds available. We employ an SSD dedicated server that we use for our clients’ websites. We also offer dedicated servers to each client that wants their own.

Shared Hosting vs. Dedicated Hosting

Most sites are hosted on servers that share space with other websites. This causes a range of problems, such as too much traffic or bad search engine practices. When businesses use these services there is no way to know who they are sharing their space with. Their sites performance is impacted by the actions of shared sites, therefore it takes control away from the business of the website.

Many web designers use a portion of the space on a shared server to host their clients’ websites. We offer space on our dedicated solid state server because we want our clients to have high performing websites. And we reserve the space to be used by our clients only. We monitor their content and do not allow black hat practices. The insures our clients get quality hosting.

More Traffic Means Slower Speed

A server can only move a certain amount of data at a time. With many websites on a server and many people trying to view those sites, it will almost certainly require more time to access those sites as the number of websites increases. This slower access hurts ranks because search engine algorithms penalize slow sites.

Dedicated Hosting Options

There are many options to choose from when deciding what type of server to use. One of the primary differences is the type of drive that it uses. Servers are designed as hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs). Hard disk drives consist of spinning disks and reading heads. These moving parts are more prone to have mechanical problems. These solid state drives store information on interconnected flash-memory chips. These have no moving parts.

SSD Is Faster and More Reliable

Solid state drives are the most updated hardware. With no moving parts they are less likely to develop problems. They are also much faster.
