I know I can optimize lots of things on my site, and some of the work my server admin does and plans to do in the future have already reduced the time it takes Google to cache my content by 50%+
To add to that I was previously using memcached, eAccelerator, various WordPress cache plugins, Nginx + Apache reverse proxy, and now most of that is switched off.
Guess when Envygeeks first played around with my server…
But they haven’t done a full rebuild yet, so the current tweeks are limited, and hampered by frequent network outages burning up support time.
When I look at the results for this blog they are pretty dire
But just a second…
All of those open pretty much instantly even on my decripid internet connection deep in the countryside of Poland, though the server is in the UK which helps a little (for me)
So where is the slowdown?
Google Friend Connect seems to add 8 seconds to my page load time
I really hope if Google are going to factor page load into their ranking algos that they will not penalize me for including one of their own widgets on my pages.
I have been testing Google Friend Connect for various benefits, but it is close to being ripped off my site.
