Speed: You want to be in the top 1% of all sites indexed
Page Load Optimization is very important in the new age of Search Engine Optimization.
Google’s very own Matt Cutts told me in a one-on-one conversation that speed does matter. Why?It takes Google huge ammounts of bandwidth to crawl the millions of sites and pages, so they have limited resources per site. This means is for what ever amount of time Google alots for the process, so if your slow loadning home page taked up all the time then they may never get to the deep pages, where the good content is!

“SPEED GOAL” Google announced at the last webmasters meeting, that you should shoot for under a 1 second page load. Now 80% of the sites on the market, do not load that fast but it is the goal.
“Notes” If all things equal on a site, the faster site out ranks the slower site.
