https vs pagespeed
« on: 09-04-2017, 02:48:42 »

I am hoping someone can help me because I have literally spent hours trying to work out what is best and I am confused as hell as I keep reading conflicting advise.

My current situation is that my site loads in 2.9s with http but with https the site loads in 6.1s

But I have read that Google prefers https as opposed to http and will give a boost for sites that use https but I have also read that Google loves sites that load fast. So if I have to chose between fast http and slow https which is the better choice for seo with Google please?

I also see that a lot of people are saying that https makes their site load faster than http which certainly isn't the case in my instance but also that wouldn't make any sense because surely https would be an extra step to process so logically https should always be even a little bit slower than http?

Can anyone please unravel the mystery with this and tell me which choice to make and or why a SSL cert should slow the site down by nearly 4 seconds meaning does that sound normal?

Many Thanks
