Again, please consult the raw performance data if you wish to examine it for additional factors.
When people say"page load time" for a website, they usually mean one of two measurements: "document complete" time or "fully rendered" time.
Now, the speed at which someone could view the content from a search result would be a factor.
Unfortunately, the exact definition of "site speed" remained open to speculation.
To begin our research, we worked with Matt to create a list of of 2,000 random search queries from the 2013 Ranking Factors study.
We selected a representative sample of queries, some with as few as one search term ("hdtv"), others as long as five ("oklahoma city outlet mall stores") and everything in between.
Think of document complete time as the time it takes a page to load before you can start clicking or entering data.
