Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 97.1% of all visits is Germany. It lies approximately 5030 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Metro.de page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to Germany or just closer to the user base.

For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
