We have gone through a tough year of trying to adjust ourselves to the ever changing world of web design the web 2.0 era social networking sites the new guidelines for bloggers in regards to disclosure policy well all that aside i must remind you that i am no expert in seo or web designer just trying to share some knowledge with you.We are quite aware of the fact that as bloggers we crave for a decent Google Page Rank i too would love a pr 6 blog unfortunately that is not the case at the moment what the future holds for lawmacs.com in the next updates not sure but i pay little attention to pr at the moment now lets turn or attention to the latest news that Google has hinted that Page Speed will be included in its ranking factor .
There are some topics about this but as Website Designer when creating Web pages this should already be a factor taken into consideration as i have mentioned in one of my earlier post Content or Page Rank that when creating or designing your web pages you should focus on the user and everything else will follow not surprisingly Page Speed has now been include as part the ranking factor to help with your Page Loading Time here are some Tips
(1)Put Cascading Style Sheet at the top this lets your page load faster and the server only needs to read this file once and it is best practice to use CSS sprite buy this is meant using one image with smaller images embedded in it and use your style sheet to do the rest.
(3)Page size Try to keep your page at a reasonable size some recommend that it be about 50k although some times we go above this ensure that the user doesn’t have to scroll horizontally to view your web pages this can be a turn off. test your website pages with several browsers and make sure that they load completely and quickly make sure that your links work.
After all we design to suit of readers although search engines are the source of our traffic the reader is the one that bring the clicks and help your website to generate the revenue so now i left you to share your thoughts on this post do you think page speed should be a part of your ranking factor? have your say.
