Hey guys, we all know that how fast your site loads also affects our rankings in Google according to Matt Cutts. What web hosting provider would you recommend since my hosting provider has been doing frequent maintenance with their servers. Would you suggest any hosting providers? Thanks!

We don't all KNOW that it does, it has been suggested that it might, HOWEVER I have yet to see "load time" be difined by Google as what they are using as "load time".

Is it the time it took for the data to strean out from the server?

Is it the time it takes to render the page?

or something else?

AND
What do they measure it against?

do they compare your pages to other pages in the;

Same marketplace,
Same country?
Same continent?
Same IP range?


For something to be deemed "faster" or "slower" there has to be a standard to measure against otherwise you may as well say that a seal is better because it is faster than a house brick is.

We don't allow recommendations for particular products or services here either, sorry.
