Site performance, often referred to as web performance, is a measure of the speed and efficiency with which a website loads and operates. It encompasses various factors including the speed of page load, the responsiveness of user interface elements, the smoothness of animations, and the efficiency of any backend processes or database queries. A site's performance can be influenced by many factors, such as server capacity, network latency, browser capabilities, and the efficiency of the site's code. Good site performance is crucial for providing a positive user experience, and it can also impact search engine rankings. There are numerous tools and techniques for measuring and improving site performance, including performance profiling, load testing, and techniques for optimizing code, images, and other resources.
