OK, I’ll play too – Dave asked for links to Matt’s blog, using the .co.uk variant.
I thought I would link to a fake of Matt’s discussion of Page Loading delays not affecting rankings.
This topic concerns me, in a negative way – I’m of the school that, short of a page failing to load, a page loading reasonably slowly won’t affect its crawl, but I’m aware of the myth.
Too many myths, not enough good information :(
