SEO and pageload time of a website

Postby Stuart » Tue Feb 09, 2010 5:41 pm

According to recent news, Google will give much importance to pageload time factor of a website while ranking it in the search engine. But someone know how much time is good from google's point of view for loading a webpage. It is nowhere mentioned. I am confused :roll:

I think the speed of site is very important to decide your page rank. Try to make your site faster. And your page rank will be good.

That means that even fewer search results are affected, since the average search query is returning 10 or so search results on each page. So please don’t worry that the effect of this change will be huge. In fact, I believe the official blog post mentioned that “We launched this change a few weeks back after rigorous testing.” The fact that not too many people noticed the change is another reason not to stress out disproportionately over this change.

That said, improvements in the user experience are generally good for SEO since search engines "reward" websites that offer a more pleasant user experience.

The less the loading time, the more should be the rank. I have not find the particular time range, but i think google means that the sites who has the flash or the java-script in them takes some more time to load. The process takes some more time rather than a static and without flashy sites. It also makes the server to perform very smoothly. Thats the reason i have for this title.
