Google: Does Your XML Sitemaps Need To Load Fast?

Many webmasters and SEOs are obsessed with site speed, not just for their users satisfaction but also because Google seems to be obsessed with it as well. But XML sitemaps are not for users, it is for Google, so do those need to load super fast?

The answer is no. They just need to load and how long it takes, doesn’t seem to matter too much. As long as they don’t time out when Google tries to access it, then you should be okay.
