Question: Importance of page speed in SEO? (Load times, latency, etc) Recommend CDN?

So, all things being equal, you need a minimally response site to succeed a major factor, but a slow site can indeed kill your SEO. Most sites, however, are fast enough in my experience; it’s pretty rare for them to be terrible in terms of response.
