Sucuri, TTFB and Google ranking

Sucuri writes about their pov on performance:

We focus on useful metrics to optimize speed, like total time, not first byte or server response time.

When you’re in the weeds of optimizing your site speed, play smart. Instead of trying hard to push down your document complete, start rendering, or fully loaded page load time metrics (all of which are important), focus on the highest-impact metric first: TTFB.

Where TTFB = time to first byte. Needless to say I’m with Neil on this!

    Well, the point Cloudflare makes is explained and has some merit. The same cannot be said from Sucuri’s. The fact that TTFB impacts ranking puts things nicely into perspective ;-)
