Page Download Time Affects Website’s Rankings on Google

Solomon Thimothy - January 15, 2010

Having a website that loads quickly does more than just help your visitors, it also helps your organic rankings on Google. Having a site that is image-heavy and uses things like AJAX, XML, and Flash could hurt after a certain point.

Google announced a Site Speed site that provides resources to webmasters to speed up their pages.

A faster loading website leads to a reduction in bounce rate of the site, more leads, greater chances of conversion, reduction of bandwidth and hosting costs and more.

Here are some things that could be slowing down your website load time:

  • Slow re-direct
  • Hosting on a slow server
  • Using big images
  • Using frames
  • Using JavaScript

Check your website to see how fast your page downloads and try to optimize your site as much as you can. It can help give you one more advantage against the competition.
