What is recommended Downloading/Browsing speed/Time for any website and how it is measured and does this browsing time would be automatically set for all the pages or either would have to set page by page.
I don't think you can do much about speed
But you can reduce the number of calls to absolute links (the ones with "http://") to minimze the "over the net" fetching.
Relative links are faster because the browser already knows where to start looking and doesn't need to find the domain all over again.
eg. instead of a 976 K gif you might be able to use a 84 K png
Of course the HTML page takes up bytes too, don't forget that!
When most people were using dialup about half would have left within 30 seconds (that was about 80k worth of downloads).
Now with broadband speeds many times that about half will only wait two or three seconds. That's still around 80k.
Of course once they have viewed your first page and know what to expect then they will be likely to wait longer for subsequent pages.
I guess the download speed doesn't matter much for SEO. Only thing matters is the loading spped of your page. You can test your loading speed with google standards online.
The less the loading time the better it will be for your site and the less heavy your page is the more chances their are that people with slow connections stay on your site.
On top of this, you can download YSlow for Firefox (comes with [firebug) or [URL="https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ninejjcohidippngpapiilnmkgllmakh#"]Chrome](http://getfirebug.com/) to see how fast your page is loading and what you have to do to get it to load even faster.
I could not understand this point you can reduce the number of calls to absolute links (the ones with "http://") to minimze the "over the net" fetching so can you elaborate?
If you needed to go to 5 different places in another city, which would be faster?
Going to the city, going to one place, then going from home to the city again to another place
- or -
Going to the city, going to one place, then while there going to another place.
Well, OK, that isn't the best example. Actually the traffic is still needed.
But the browser doesn't need to figure out where to start looking from scratch.
So the example should be more like
Figuring out where the city is, going there to the first place, again figuring out where the city is, going there to another place.
- or -
Figuring out where the city is, going there to the first place, Knowing where the city is, going there to another place.
Thanks for providing such an expert detail information. so its the matters of the place.
You must understand that Google give importance to loading speed of a site and ther is one link that I want to share with you. I think do work on it then after I dont think you will have many problem regarding to know http://pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ver
