    Google PageSpeed

    Hello, everyone!

    As has been made quite popular over the last few months, the speed of a website is becoming an increasingly critical factor to its corresponding position in Google – and rightfully so. Not long ago, Google released a new ‘lab’ called PageSpeed, which allows you to now see what recommendations Google makes regarding your site’s performance. My latest post covers several of the factors used in the new performance algorithm and reviews methods through which your own site’s speed can be improved.

    Read all the news here:
    Google PageSpeed - Site Performance

    “RunningOnlineBusiness.com got an overall Page Speed Score of 89 (out of 100).”
    Please read my post and leave a comment telling us your site's Page Speed Score!

  2. Thanked by:

    Thx for the link.

    I've got a few 90's, but overall I think it's impossible to have a lot more...

    Yahoo scores 89! LOL

    Yeah, I am inclined to agree. Especially with a highly dynamic site because the less static, the more you have to optimize and adjust.

    This was interesting: "The page Net Builders got an overall Page Speed Score of 61 (out of 100)."
    Biggest issue the tool finds is that NB needs to, "Combine images into CSS sprites." Regardless, NB always loads quickly for me.

    Well, it looks like VB4 is poorly coded.

    Yes this an important factor; which must be considered to get high PR. If the speed is less Google can not crawl all the pages of the site.

    Err... Page Speed has absolutely nothing to do with PR. Page Speed is a ranking factor. PR is related to backlinks.

    Page Speed is only important when your site is so slow that your competitors get annoyed or you are slower than your competition. I find that it's relative to your competition.

    Update: I had my page speed drop drastically in the past week. From 95th percentile to almost 60th percentile and I have not noticed google ranking me any different. I suspect that they may have a moving average of your speed to account for error and variability. Ill post if anything changes if my page speed stays low.

    I would not expect you to see any major difference in ranking. As Google says, it is only one factor out of 200. That means it only plays a small role. I would think it would only be a major factor if pages were so slow that they could not be read by a spider in a reasonable amount of time.

    It may not only be Google. If I visit very slow sites they quickly piss me off, and chances are very small that I will re-visit them. In a competitive niche this means death.
