Ramp Up Your Site’s Speed

Think about the last time that you visited a web site that was clumsy, slow to load, and generally not user-friendly. Did you stay on the site for long? Did you buy many products or services? Probably not. Instead, I bet you left the site right away and swore never to return. If a site loads quickly, then visitors typically spend more time on a site, visit more pages, and buy more products and services. In fact, it’s been shown that if a site does not load within ten seconds, most users will typically leave before seeing anything.

In the never-ending race to keep your site freshly updated, it’s easy to forget the importance of keeping your site clean, lean, and running up to speed.

Pingdom Tools helps you analyze the load speed of your web sites and learn how to make them faster. It lets you identify what about a web page is fast, slow, too big, and what best practices you’re not following. It measures all objects of your site and shows the load time in a status bar format, as well as the totals on the overall load time, number of objects, images, scripts, plugins, CSS, and much more!

With these results and the status bar formatting of all objects, you can visually see areas that may be slowing your load time. You can sort and filter this list in different ways to identify performance bottlenecks and get some great tips on how to speed up your web site.

You can track your site’s performance history, as they each test for you so you can review it later and also see how things change over time (with pretty charts!). You can also test from multiple geographic locations.

All tests are done with real web browsers, so the results match the end-user experience exactly. Tests are done from dedicated Pingdom servers.

The initial review service is free of charge, and they offer subscription rates to a service that continually checks on your site.
