Recruitment is big business, it always has been and it’s becoming an increasingly desirable industry in which to work. Why? because the adoption of social media, job sites, Linkedin and all the other glorious recruitment channels means that overheads (costs) are dropping & scale is increasing as recruiters are able to tap into more markets across more geographies than ever before.

Google Page Speed Insights is a relatively new tool by Google. It checks the speed of your site, delivered on both mobile & desktop devices. Clearly, Google uses this information to help them rank websites – those that perform poorly on mobile speed tests will be given a lower priority to mobile users in search results.

It’s this constant pursuit for perfection that drives me to come back to Netshock on a daily basis to write articles and to learn more about technology, marketing, business and also to learn things about myself.
It seems that Google has started to recognise the passion that a dedicated website owner has and has started to use website speed as a ranking factor (it’s probably something to do with user experience too, but I like to think it proves how dedicated and interested the webmaster is in their project).
