How long is too long for a page to load for googlebot?
I want to make sure google can follow and pick up all my internal links but im worried the pages may be too slow to load. If so i can make a quick map page or 6.
Does googlebot it have a timeout value?
Rather than just sound negative, let me suggest two things...
If your ISP is slow, consider hosting it elsewhere.
If your HTML is bloated, consider CSS from an external file to improve your signal to noise ratio in the code....
Anyone know when googlebot will give up? Its about 4 seconds between click and screen showing up at moment.
Just remember, because you are on a high-speed internet connection, that does not mean all are, and vice-versa.
Hope this helps.
their description of my site reads:
Speed: Average (58% of sites are slower), Avg Load Time: 1.4 Seconds
my site is quite well-coded (excessive use of css, no tables) on a very mainstream US provider, so it hasn't reasons to be slow.
and it isn't, 1.4 seconds should be quite quick. however, 40% of the net still loads quicker than my site!
and that's the point: speed perception is highly subjective and depends on an average user experience, thus on the entire net.
i'm really sorry - i just realized that was completely offtopic.. i've just read the subject, not the text, before posting. disculpenme senores.[/edit]
