  1. I do find this a problem because it not always the website fault if it suffers from slowdown. I assume that google will have in prace a set of tests that will check the speed over a length of time to give a more accurate evaluation of the website.

    Problems with servers, line speed bottlenecks all play a role of causing a website to be slow.

    Because of this I think that speed testing will only play a small role on determine the quality of the website compared to more important aspects such as keywords, content and structure.

  2. I agree James. Speed is also aligned with usability. The user will only wait a certain amount of time to achieve his task.

  3. I am suffering from a speed problem at the min, I am thinking a whole new design is in order. Damn Google! lol, but on a serious note it is good as Anthony has pointed out as accessibility and usability is the main priority..
