    We all know that these days Google is paranoid about speed and quality. They have already made it clear that page load time is one of the signal which they are considering for search engine ranking.

    To make user work easier, Google analytics has added a new feature which will let you track page load time of internal pages of  your blog. This new feature added by Google analytic is call Site Speed analytic report.

    In site speed analytic, you can find Content which is taking longest time to load. How page load time differs from Geographical position of visitors. Probably after seeing this report, you might find a reason to integrate CDN into your WordPress blog.

    It also reports about site load time on different browser and technology.

    The major benefit of this new Google analytic site speed report is , you can analyze internal pages of your blog and you can optimize it for better and faster loading time.

    How to enable Google Analytic site speed?

    To enable Google analytic site speed feature, you need to alter your current analytic code. You need to add a line of code which you can find on this page or this is the line of code which you need to add:

     _gaq.push(['_trackPageLoadTime']);

    I would strongly recommend to enable page speed feature on your analytics account and work on optimization of your popular posts. This will help you in better ranking and for better experience of readers.

    Quick tip: Once you have found pages which is taking longer time to load, find the reason for slow loading time. You can work on optimizing images using Smush.it and also remove useless comment. Too many comments on a page increase page load time. It’s better to close the comment form after certain no. of comment, to ensure that page load time remains intact.

    Do let us know if you have enabled site speed feature by adding above code in your Analytics code? What other usage you can think of Site speed feature of analytics?

    oh oh oh wait you are getting it wrong , The above is wrong! We have to add _trackPageLoadTime(); to our analytic code under what you have mentioned above just have a look – http://www.google.com/support/analyticshelp/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1205784&topic=1120718&utm_source=gablog&utm_medium=blog&utm_campaign=newga-blog&utm_content=sitespeed

    Google has really added this nice feature. Till now we could check the page load time with some third party sites only but I don’t even those sites were able to tell about the load time specific for the content.
    I think there is some problem going on with Google Analytics. I don’t know if it has got any relation with this newly added feature or something. All of sudden, analytics has stopped showing any stats since last 2 days. Is there anyone else facing the similar issue with Google Analytics or has clue about the same?

    May be you need to cross-check your Google analytic code to make sure it’s right..!! If you don’t see any stats, I believe something wrong with the code which you have added. Grab the fresh code from your GA account and that might help.

    Thanks for sharing. I waited for this Google Analytics feature for months, because I knew my load time from my own country but I didn’t know it from elsewhere. Just going over and testing it out :) .

    I’m sure it will give you more insight. If you find that your site load time is higher in other countries..You might like to try out CDN..
