Page speed refers to the amount of time that it takes for a web page to fully load and become interactive for a user. Page speed is an important factor in the user experience.

Page speed is typically measured in seconds. A fast page speed is typically considered to be anything below 2 seconds, while a slow page speed is anything above 3 seconds.

There is a range of factors that can impact page speed, including the size and complexity of the page, the quality and performance of the server and the hosting environment, and the user's internet connection and device. Website owners and developers use tools and techniques, such as caching, minification, and compression, to optimize page speed.There are several ways to improve a website's page speed, including optimizing the size and structure of the page, using caching, minifying and compressing resources, and using a content delivery network (CDN).
