Every so often I use the site load time tool from Pingdom.com. Not only does it give you a great analysis of what is and what isn’t slow on your site, it will also record the tests so you can check it out in the future. Here is a screen shot of my most recent site load test:
You can see just how much faster my site has gotten. It has gone from a 7 seconds page load 3 months ago, down to only 1.5 seconds now.
There are still a few minor things I could do to improve page speed, but we are talking things which would in total shave off only a few tenths of a second.
Overall I’m very pretty pleased with the performance of my site now.
I think I’m going to put this aside for the moment and focus on increasing conversions in September.
