It all leverages one of the world's highest-performing global networks. If you’re new to Layer0, here’s what they can do to help you build your business.

Layer0 Powers the World’s Fastest Websites

Before Layer0, complex pages might take 3-6 seconds to load. With Layer0, pages load 70-90% faster, in just a few hundred milliseconds. Here are just a few real-world examples of high-performance websites powered by Layer0 — pages load faster than the blink of an eye!

Instant Happens Before the Request

Seconds before it’s requested, content is already in the site visitor’s browser. Essentially anything on the screen a visitor can click on has been brought to the edge and streamed to their device before they select it. How? Layer0 predicts what the user will request and retrieves it from dynamic cache using revolutionary predictive prefetch that leverages EdgeJS. Dynamic caching ensures sub-second performance while reducing traffic to your servers.

Win The Search Engine Battle for New Users

Top ranking in Google search results can make or break a business. With Layer0, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) improves dramatically with high scores on Google’s critical CWV (Core Web Vitals). Layer0 can improve all three key CWV metrics: how fast the largest content paints, how visually stable the page is as it loads, and how quickly the page becomes responsive to interactions. Layer0 can help move your website to the top tier of the rankings and above your competition, boosting traffic and revenue.
