Speed Up WordPress is a nifty little plugin that ramps up your WordPress page loading speed by setting up important Apache configuration rules.
Here is a couple of quotes from the Nathan Gotch's SEO strategy video you can find below.
"The truth is that a slow loading website won't only hurt your organic search performance but it can actually hurt your business as well."
"There are countless studies showing the importance of website loading speed and its effect not only on your organic search traffic performance, but also on your businesses performance as well."
Some case studies underlining the importance of your website loading speed:
"1 second delay in website loading speed can reduce conversions by 7%."
"Mozilla Firefox reduced their average website loading time by 2.2 seconds, which increased downloads by 15.4%!" -Mozilla.org (see article)
