Ecommerce Site Speed in Google Analytics
I'll show you my number is you show me yours

 7:16 pm on May 19, 2011 (gmt 0)

We run multiple on a home-grown platform and we host on AWS. Since we do all our own work, I'm curious how we stack up speed wise.

According to Google Analytics site speed, we average 5 seconds.

What does Google Analytics on your site read?

Are you sure five seconds is right? Is it so slow because you are using Google Analytics?

My site does not have Google Analytics, but Webmaster Tools gives average page speed on my site as 0.7 seconds. I believe this speed is due not so much to my webhost as to using static html.

Google Analytics Site Speed. I understand that's something brand new and it has to be enabled with special tracking code. Right?

Correct, jsinger

Where is special tracking code (Google Analytics Site Speed)?

You can find setup instructions here: [google.com...]

Be aware that enabling Site Speed tracking for your site results in an extra request made to the Google Analytics servers, separate from the page tracking GIF request made for pageviews. To minimize impact on overall site latency, this request is sent only on a sampling of pageviews to your site.

Whether an average page load time of 5 seconds is acceptable depends on how much work you've put into optimizing so far. In other words, is 5 seconds the best you can do? Use the Site Speed panel to discover the worst-performing pages.
