Optimizing your website performance
Now, you can analyze your site’s performance using online tools. These tools analyzes one’s site in many various important aspects such as actual loading times for different connection speeds, how many images are loaded, how many bytes of data is being loaded, etc.
What you have to do is visit : http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/
Enter your site/blog URL and press “Submit query”.
Within minutes, you will get a detailed site report from where you can know Analysis and recommendations for your blog.
Also, you can enter anyone’s URL ( friends’ or competitors) to know and see how well or bad their site performed compared to one’s own site.
On wedale’s analysis on “website optimization”, I got :
Green (3) | Yellow(1) | Red (7)
So, now I’ll have to take care of Total objects and Image size in order to speed up.
Visit : http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/ and hit “Test now” after entering blog URL.
You can also save your test if you want to share with others like me.
Pingdom Tools’ analysis has something that Web Site Optimization does not have – detailed load times for each item loaded! This is so totally cool! Totally useful!
How it works :
The load time of all objects is shown visually with time bars.
You can view the list of objects either in load order or as a hierarchy. The hierarchy view allows you to see which objects are linked to in for example a CSS file.
