One factor at work we have discussed is how fast does a website load. Most blogs load fairly fast since they use graphics sparingly. Would you ever decide not to visit a blog if it took too long to load? Web Site Optimization.com has an interesting tool for testing download times. With a 56k modem alsoalso speed was 10.95 seconds which then SOCEngine rates this as a respectable 7/10. For comparison kos has a speed of 16.88 seconds for 56k with a score of 6/10. And under analysis and recommendations A2 did much better.
Do you consider speed in download times when visiting sites?
