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?
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.

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
