    It depends on your marketing strategy, your target client and the products or services you offer.

    Yes, it is important factor in SEO. If website loading time is not good then you can see high bounce rate on your website.

    That's not true. Time to the first meaningful content is important but the total page load speed can be slow without affecting the UX.

    Site loading speed is definitely an important factor in seo and also users usually do not wait long and may switch to your competitors site.

    Not true. It's the time to the first meaningful content that matters not the page load speed.

    Note also that the site can be very fast loading but it appears slow because of poor hosting.

    A moderate site will discourage clients and power them to utilize your opposition.

    You all need to do some research. Page load speed has varying measures, one of the most important being the time until meaningful paint. The total time can be large as long as you present useful content quickly.

    Yes, Of Course, it is an important factor for user experience. The lowest your loading speed will be the more you will have the chances to retain the user on your website. If a user-facing problem in loading the site on his mobile or browser he/she will immediately bounce. I also heard that speed is also a ranking factor, however, I am not sure.

    It's important . Especially when it comes to mobile. Your mobile SEO should focus on fast load time.

    The AMP framework will not make your site load any faster. AMP loads independently to the main site and is pre-rendered by Google. An AMP page will be displayed in the SERP for viewing without visiting your site.

    If you land on an AMP page from your phone you will see the link to the live site top right. It means people may be looking at an older pre-rendered page. It will not help the ranking of the main site.
