Blogger templates versus WordPress templates.
Why speed matters.
The purpose of this site is to compare the speeds of different templates and platforms.
In particular we test a range of WordPress templates versus blogger blogs, hosted by google.
The reason speed is important is because of the percentage of people who click away after a few short seconds if they don’t get what they want. Latest estimates put this at 53% clicking away after 3 seconds.
Losing traffic can be an expensive business and it's worth considering anything that will keep them on board, no matter what template or platform you use.
