    Some URLs in the Sitemap have a high response time.


    This eCommerce website was recently redesigned in May. Since then the rankings have dropped off significantly. I have seen this error message in WMT's and I thought that response time may be an issue.

    I have cloned the website on a temporary URL on my server and Pingdom loads my site about 3-4 seconds faster. Would everyone think that the slow server could be causing the WMT's error + the drop in rankings?

    While is could be a factor it is more likely that it isn't the only factor.

    for starters you don't say what it is you receiving from google..
    What error message?
    You also cloned the website on a temp site...is it live? You could be getting hit by Panda.

    The issue says:

    Some URLs in the Sitemap have a high response time.

    The description is:

    Some URLs listed in this Sitemap have a high response time. This may indicate a problem with your server or with the content of the page.

    Yes, the temporary site is live on static IP.

    As Test-ok said: "you might get hit by Panda", true..

    Sorry for the lack of detail. The current live site was getting those messages, so I recreated it on a temporary IP to test and the load times for the website are considerably better. So I was wondering if the high response time could be from a slow server response?
