New book on Website Optimization Secrets
In this first issue of the new year we report on a performance tweak, a broadband trend in the UK, and our ongoing redesign. After we upgraded our server to a solid-state drive and faster processors users were still experiencing slowdowns under heavy loads. Tests showed that the Web Page Analyzer was the cause of the problem, eating up resources and slowing down the server. By offloading this resource-intensive script to another server we significantly improved response times and throughput. In a recent survey, UK users averaged 3.6Mbps for download speeds, less than half of the advertised speed of up to 8Mbps. Lastly, we've finalized the redesign of WebsiteOptimization.com, and are currently creating the XHTML and CSS. We're also converting the site to PHP from XSSI for performance and flexibility.
