thus this means we should not have images/videos/scripts on our site?
Search Engine News reports that Matt Cutts described at Pub Con Las Vegas that Google may start using page speed as a factor in ranking sites.
Load time is already a quality factor for AdWords and there is a strong chance that speed will factor into the organic ranking algorithm.
I can see more of a problem with dynamic sites use a sql database that loads to slow.
This is good for those of us that also use Google to search for information.
At least if they implement this it will be less likely that we stumble upon slow-loading websites.
That's kind of tricky though, my site never ever has the same speed - some days it's slow, some days it's fast. How is Google going to keep up with these kind of changes?
ooohhh noooo!!! isn't it unfair now to sites like photo sharing sites?
Well yes you can say that image sites might be discriminated a bit against plain sites. But then again it has always been like that. Image sites have always been hard to optimize than plain text sites due to lack on content that search engines understand.
What's interesting to be seen is HOW-MUCH Google weighs this factor if included in those 200 factors.
It's time to build more minisites people At least that's what I'm going to work on The video is pretty good, a lot of information You should check it out if you didn't
