Let Google Speed Up Your Small Biz Website

Google Speeds Up Your Website

Is your website slow? Google is starting to offer a service that will automatically speed up your website. As Ram Ramani says in the announcement:

In our testing we have seen speed improvements of 25% to 60% on several sites.

This sounds very similar to Cloudflare, where you let the company manage your DNS, and they route all traffic through their servers. Cloudflare has more of a focus on security, though, while Google is only discussing speed.

If you have one of those sites that takes forever to appear, Google’s service might be something to look into. You can read all about it at: Page Speed Service: Web performance, delivered. – The official Google Code blog.

    sounds a lot like many other serivces, such as cloudflare and incapsula.
    What they do miss- is the security capability. Incapsula offers it all, so I guess they got some catching up to do.

      I hadn’t heard of Incapsula – it looks like an interesting service as well.

    Definitely consider that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other folks consider concerns that they just don’t realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
