Google Clears Up Page Speed as Ranking Factor Controversy
In late 2009 Google announced that website load speed may become a factor in gauging the Page Rank of your website. Say what? That’s right. Word on the street was that Google is considering to factor in the loading time of your website into its algorithm and therefore reflecting on the Page Rank of your website. While many SEOs were grabbing themselves on the head with both hands others were wondering if they would even have a chance at ranking starting 2010. In a recent interview with Google’s Matt Cutts with WebProNews Reporter Mike McDonald he stated that Google would not factor in website load speed into your Page Rank equation.
