Does Page Bloat Affect Google Organic Search Rankings?

One of the questions that seems to come up a lot in our forums is whether larger page file sizes affect search engine rankings in Google results. Matt Cutts from Google has put together a video explaining how Google views page file size.

My advice is to keep the page as “clean” as possible – remember Google is a robot and if you give the robot a mess, it’s not as likely to find the diamonds.
