After all the hard work ,you found that your blog still didn't get a good position in SERP (Search engine result page)there are many factors ,whats wrong? you probably penalised by Google and they are sending you to sandbox, others reason might be the "loading time" of your blog.
Whats Loading Time
Whats these "SEO,speed,loading.." things all about? Technically,site speed reflects how quickly a website responds to web requests.You can call it "loading time".
Speeding up your blog is important for best user experience.Web blog that take forever to load a page, doesn't it make you frustrated.
Why Loading Time Is important
Imagine this, if i am a guy who refer you somethings ? would you still believe me if i always sending you a page that has low performance and take few minute to load?Note that slow loading sites always associate with sites that loader with heavy ads and banners? Everyone "run" if landing on those sites.
If You are the site owners, you should always remember these golden rules:
Rule#1:Faster sites create happy users .
Rules#2:If you make your visitors happy ,Google will make you happy.
Google are collecting those "numbers"and know from their internal studies who's the fat blog that "load slow AND fast close".
It really doesn't need a high tech guy in GOOGLE to know that when a site visitors spend less time on the site,it mean the site is not relevant or not good.The site will most likely be rated DOWN.How do you ask them top rank a crap?
Google might be wrong judged your blog but you better don't mess with The Search Engine.New Google Search ranking algorithms awarded low bouncer rate site.
When the page loaded fast and visitor stick on it without leave immediately.G will thinks it is a good site ,and that probably one of the most good thing you can do to your blog beside adding valuable contents..
So,make sure your site is optimize for fast loading speed.I know you might use your blog to make some extra money online,but Hey!How can you make a dime if your visitors can't wait your blog finished loading and runaway?
Remember ,Never equip to many heavy ads at once.(pop up,pop under,PPC ,Chitika,link info,Adsense upside down etc.)bunch of ads can't guarantee make you money but 90% heavy loading blog drives your visitors away.
Another reasons for you to make your blog load Faster is Faster loading blog not only improve user experience;but it might help our environment,faster loading site save time and energy THAT NEEDED to load a page,improving site speed will reduces electricity.(may be it is not that important to you)So,in other word ,it help in search rankings SEO and environment 2 :-)
