Site speed is a factor in your search rankings

Obviously by now you should know that site speed is a factor on Google Search results as stated by the Google Websearch team recently. And here’s what they say about this

Like us, our users place a lot of value in speed — that’s why we’ve decided to take site speed into account in our search rankings. We use a variety of sources to determine the speed of a site relative to other sites.

Although they also said that currently fewer than 1% of search queries are affected by your site speed and doesn’t carry as much weight as page relevance, and beside site speed only applies to visitors searching using Google.com

Because for me since 1% can still be considered as number despite small, i’ve tried my best to optimize this blog further by applying various wordpress optimization technique to this blog so it can be loaded much faster to this blog visitors

So far i’ve tested this blog using various tools such as webpagetest, and also by asking my friend to check my site :P and the results are quite good (for the homepage at least), as for individual pages, well feel free to check it by yourself.

But unfortunately there’ll always a limit to everything especially if your site relies on external scripts quite heavily, because you don’t have control to those external source and in the end you just have to live with it

But of course, even if site speed isn’t a factor in Google, i’ll always tried my best to optimize this site just to make sure this site visitors happy by providing fast page load

So if you read this post, i’d be glad if you let me know on how fast this site load for you by posting your comment below (it’d be a great addition if you could post your country location too) ;)
