Google might be looking closer at load times but pay some respect first to your visitors before you think of Google!
Personally speaking, a few seconds wait and I'm away from a page. In the time it takes your page to load the James Villas website has let me find a property and presented me with a full quote and book now button.
Speed is an abandonment nightmare, conversion and bounce rate killer.
1: Get firefox http://getfirefox.com/
2: Get Firebug http://getfirebug.com/
3: Get Google's Page Speed http://code.google.c...eed/page-speed/
4: Get Yahoo's ySlow http://developer.yahoo.com/yslow/
5: Bookmark http://www.webpagetest.org/test
Here's what I've picked up on your site in no time with ySlow:
This page has 12 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
This page has 9 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.
There is 1 stylesheet found in the body of the document
There are 73 static components without a far-future expiration date.
There are 3040 DOM elements on the page
Once the client side is efficient then work on a server side cache to reduce the load times and server stress even more.
I've run a webpagetest.org report for you:http://www.webpagete...lt/100228_5G6T/http://www.webpagete...e_optimization/
If you're thinking it's impossible to get green ticks on 99% of things see this: http://www.webpagete...lt/100228_5G6W/
- that report was run from a different continent to where the server is and still delivers a page quickly.
In terms of speeding up the code I see you're using PHP so this might be handy: http://phptutorial.b...ation-tips.html
These performance optimisations are not for Google, they are for users. Speeding up your site will have a positive effect for those using it!
If you take all of the tips from the tools above into acount and it's still slow it would suggest your host is to blame. Still, rule out any possible issues on your side and see how it goes.
Totally seperate note, I find it bad you disabled right click. You have no right to disable any of my browser features, what if I were a disabled user who used right click as a primary means of navigation?
