Time to first byte

TTFB stands for ‘time to first byte’. This refers to how quickly your server responds to a request. The quicker the TTFB, the better the server. This is one of many tests we use when auditing websites, as many visitors would click away depending on site speed. Quick TTFB can help!

To conclude...

TTFB stands for ‘time to first byte’ and is best when it’s low! A low TTFB shows a good server for your website.
