Hi, I have a website that is www.infoway.us/. I found since the day alexa started showing following message :
Average Load Time for Infoway.us

Slow (2.5 Seconds), 72% of sites are faster.

Note: Slow sites may be penalized by search engines.

my traffic rank is decreasing, From 96K and odd it touched 123 and something in a span of a few days.

Could this slow nature of my site is telling upon the over-all progress including Google ranking? Forget to say Google ranking too has started to to take the back sit. Please help me.
