UPDATED: 13 questions (and answers) about Google, site speed, and SEO

A year ago, I wrote a Q&A post answering the most common questions I get asked about page speed and SEO. As a followup to that post, I recently wrote an updated version for SEOMoz, with new/expanded information about questions such as:

  • How does Google use its toolbar to crowdsource page measurement?
  • Does preloading hurt your ranking?
  • Does a faster start render time help your ranking?

And ultimately the biggest question:

  • How much does site speed really matter when it comes to SEO?

If this is a topic of interest for you, I invite you to check out the post and let me know if you have any new questions.
