Speed is also related to this term because when a user hits on your website and facing a loading issue for more than expected this is very much possible that he will skip your website and move to another. When Google crawls this activity, it considers your content is not enough satisfying, and results in your website ranks get lower. Therefore, fix this issue as soon as possible.
