Re: Landing Page Load Time Live In QS

Here's a stupid thought that crossed my mind the other day as I was reading one of the long WmW threads about the recent Google organic results changes. When throwing out a few possibilities Tedster included page-load times. Sure, why not? If G is looking at it on the AdWords side as a user-experience issue it can just as easily be ported over to the organic side.

But ya' know, as I surf around the web one of the most common factors I find when pages are slow to finish loading is -- you guessed it -- Google Analytics. And it's had this rep from the start. So, what happens when and if AdWords advertisers find that GA impacts their quality scores?

Good point. And the list goes on. For example, one of my AdWords campaigns uses Blogger landing pages. I hope the folks that run Blogger don't have load time problems
