Been busy with our group testing 5 different websites each built with the same number of pages and exact amount of same content. Each site five pages.
Ea h site was built within the “out of the box” limits if each platform. With Word Press we used two popular page builders and with and without the aid of the fastest themes to compare against Blocs.
We used one self hosted video, one contact form, three buttons, and a host of other elements including the same fonts, amount of text same number of large 1600 wide images, 1024, 450, and 150 images all the same file sizes for each of the projects.
We looked at the Export file size in both MB and examined the amount of code as well as the architecture, structure scheme etc.
We tested the speed of page loads of each website for each page. Page load speed has a huge effect on SEO ranking and customer engagement.
We also just couldn’t help ourselve. It was (not part of this experiment but we looked at timing how long it took a new user to build each site vs an expienced user. Quite fun!!!
I will report the findings in the next week or two…
