I Feel The Need For Speed

The number one complaint that I hear about web pages is that they load too slow!  In fact, people have said that to me about this page.  (I’m working on that!)  But how do you know if your site is a turtle when it comes to loading.  You can’t always tell by your own experience.  Your website or blog is probably cached on your computer, making it load faster.  You may have a faster internet connection than most.

I have found  a useful tool that can tell you how fast your pages load, and even offers suggestions on how to speed up the load times.  Using the tool I have found that there is lots of room for improvement on The WebMaster Blog!

Run your site through  Web Page Analyzer and see how fast it loads.  Leave a comment here, and maybe the fastest blog will be the next domain winner!  We will use the speed your blog loads at 56K.  The home page of this blog loaded at 102.11 seconds. I am not too happy about that, but I will use the suggestions from Web Page Analyzer and see if I can improve that!

    Not bad for FaireNews, it loaded at 89.65 seconds. Considering the pictures and ads, not bad. Would I like better? Sure and I’ll be working on it.

    Loading time is definitely an important factor in a blog’s success, though people will still wait for really good content to load. Load time is one of those things you take for granted until you visit a really slow site. It’s much better than the dial-up days, where EVERY page took forever.

    Thanks, Kat. The comments landing page evolved from a tip gleaned during an internet marketing seminar. Looking forward to hearing from you about the domain.
