Google Using Site Speed in Rankings in 2010

I first heard this rumor from an agent at NAR last week.  Check out the video below of Matt Cutts of Google talking about how they are seriously considering using site speed as one of the many factors in ranking a site. After listening to the video it does make sense. There’s nothing worse than waiting for some dinosaur of a site to load.  He also talks a little about Caffeine and the roll out.

Matt Cutts on Site Speed and the Caffeine Update

Here is a page Google Code on making the web faster. You can dig around to find cool tools, tips, different Java Script Libraries and other things they have to make applications faster.

Looks like you probably should start thinking about upgrading your site if it is an old slow dog 😉 Love to hear your thoughts about things you can do to speed up a site.  I’m always looking for new technology and ways to speed mine up. It should be all about the user experience 🙂

    Thanks for the Heads Up. Not exactly sure yet as to what can be done to increase site speed other than cutting down on memory monger graphics.

  • I think Google will be using additional factors (more then just site speed) in their algorithm in the near future.

    Searching engine ranking criteria is always changing/improving. That's why you need somebody dedicated to this task.

    I think technology is improving day by day and Google is working to improve their technology. This will be the great achievement of Google if they complete their work on improve the speed of website. It will greatly help the users. Some websites as wholesale-canada.com and theaccountingdirectory.com are very slow to work on. If the Google succeeded then these sites will take no time to open and work on.

  • Hi there! Nice Post!

  • Hi,
    Thank you very much for sharing.That is cool that speed will now be a factor. Most sites are fine but this will help eliminate some poorly put together sites.

  • Hi,
    Just as important, google searchers who weren't Webmaster World regulars wouldn't necessarily be missing anything, because:
    – Webmaster World wouldn't disappear from the rankings, and
    – Searchers who never got beyond the top 1, 2, or 3 search results would be directed to similar information on sites that matched or outscored Webmaster World pages for google's other 199 or so ranking factors.
