Its a question you should be asking yourself and checking.
Not only does a fast website make for a good user experience, its also one of the ranking factors used by Google in their algorithm to determine search engine positioning.
This week we have been working on a small ecommerce site that was ranking well and has dropped down the listings, the site was slow, we were seeing load times of around 18 seconds per page in some areas, with some database tweeking, code changes and optimisation we have now reduced that down to 3.7 seconds per page.
Now that the speed issue is taken out of the equation, we can concentrate on the rest of the websites seo to help push it back up the rankings again.
