Google: 1% Of Searches Affected By Site Speed Ranking Factors

Slow-loading websites definitely hurt a site's search rankings, Google says. A recent study found that about one out of a 100 searches are affected by the site speed ranking factor. The sites loaded slowly enough that load speed alone would "actually change the ranking to a noticeable degree,” Google says.

That means about one in a 1,000 sites are affected. So only 0.1 percent of all websites have site speed issues that affect how well the site ranks.
