Slower site speed samples, only from Chrome
results from Site Speed Google Analytics report

Hi!

About ten days ago I decided to try this new feature in Google Analytics, called "Site Speed".

Lurking tru my reports today, I see a lot of "page samples" with more than 20 seconds or even 40 seconds - even if my site is *very* fast.
The weird thing is, those samples are only from Chrome browsers, IE samples show normal page speeds.

I tested my site using Chrome and it loas just a fast or even more than in Firefox or IE.

I don't understand how is Google Analytics taking these "samples", but my average site speed load is horrible because of that.

Anyone noticing the same? Should I take this reports seriously?

Did you try other tools?
1. [developer.yahoo.com...]
2. [webpagetest.org...]
3. [code.google.com...]

Yes, all those tools report excellent results, specially webpagetest - showing that my pages in 1.5 seconds, average.

Are there also Chrome users who do not experience such aberrant load times on your site, as far as you can tell? How big is the sample, and have you cross-checked these results with other factors, such as geographical location, bandwidth, etc?

In my personal opinion this speed testing depends on many factors. It is limit (time/date fact)within frames. You will never find correct data as various data are inside one number. This is just remind that old websites will never be top ranked. Maybe I'm wrong but I like to help you.

The solution for your problem is:

1. Remove unwanted flash or images form your website.

2. Remove java scripts which are unimportant.

3. Always use CSS to design your website layout.

4. Always host your website on reliable hosting services.

This is confusing me too.

My site normally loads in 500ms - 1 second.

However, Google Analytics says 4.5 secs average. Some pages are taking 45secs down to 8 secs!

Weird!

Sorry to disagree - old sites usually lack all the stuff current site design demands and therefore are much faster.
Comparing a plain HTML handmade site with a fresh WP blog site, I get a pagespeed ranking of 90-94, while the WP site only comes out at a low 60
