'Although speed has been used in ranking for some time, that signal was focused on desktop searches. Today we’re announcing that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches.'
Mobile Page Speed Load Time & Google Ranking
Google Webmaster released an article last month stating that load time of your website will have an impact on its SEO ranking.
"The “Speed Update,” as we’re calling it, will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users and will only affect a small percentage of queries. It applies the same standard to all pages, regardless of the technology used to build the page. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal, so a slow page may still rank highly if it has great, relevant content." From Google Webmaster on January 17th 2018
