    Is adding a photobucket sliding galley to my products and posts bad for SEO


    Is adding a photo-bucket sliding galley to my products and posts bad for SEO. I recently added a photo-bucket sliding gallery to each post and all my products and it seems my site is showing lower in Google search since? I have a WordPress website. Am I allowed to show the link here?

    Thanks and I would really appreciate and help here?

    Thanks but I thought it wouldn't load slower because photobucket was hosting the slideshow? How about I add a sliding gallery would that be better? Thanks!!

    My bet (without having checked - sorry about that) is that there is a lot of javascript there, possibly slowing things down.

    My other guess is that the "loading slower" thing has nothing to do with Google.

    Another guess would be that Google -- or any other search engine for that matter -- really can't be arsed where your
    slideshows are hosted.

    My final guess would be that no other/better slideshow plugins are available, as long as the one you're using now is
    working fine.

    Please note that these are all educated guesses.

    Thanks. Would I be better to just add a photo with the same pictures that are in the slideshow? Would the photo be faster to load? Thanks!!

    I don't know what would be better in your case

    But why do you think having a photobucket slideshow is bad?

    Because of this comment you made "
    "Loading slower in Google" ??? What does that mean? "

    So I thought it caused my pages to load slower so therefore Google ranked me lower in search.
    Thanks for your time.

    But you haven't told me/us what it means yet.
    Websites don't "load slower in Google", as far as I know, so I was wondering what sort of behaviour you were witnessing.

    Ok now I got ya. I said my site was showing lower in Google search lately (not loading). I searched Google for keywords on my site and say I showed up on page 5 number 7 now it could be page 8 number 9? My traffic has dropped from 900 per day to 700. And my adsense earnings has dropped per day. Maybe it is just something that happens?

    I recently added new posts to my site and added SEO suggestions from Yoast also.

    Thanks so much!!

    In the great scheme of things it is likely neither here nor there... won't likely hurt but won't likely help either.

    While load speed can be quoted as a disadvantage - the laws of diminishing returns apply here. If you have a title element and one link that is so much more over powering that the losses for load speed are immaterial.

    Then apply many links to the puzzle (or say your photobucket attracts links, unlikely but could) then the reverse is equally true... lower load speeds aid ranks.
