Check the load time of your site
Everyone knows how annoying it can be having to deal with websites that take forever to load. There are recent researches, in fact, confirming that 75% of the Internet users do not return to sites that take longer than four seconds to load.
In order to check the load time of your site you can use an online tool called “Website Speed Test”Â. It allows you to enter up to 10 websites, and the results display the size of the website, the total loading time and the average speed per KB.
By the way I would suggest keeping your load time below 2 seconds. In the near future I will post an article with tips to make your pages load faster.

I thought I noticed something strange with the results so I decided to go back and check again. I am checking because I think weshop-youbuy.com is slow owing to the scripts running in the backgroud and size of site yet still growing.
1 williamsusan.com 69.71 KB 15.96 seconds 0.23 seconds
2 weshop-youbuy.com 73.69 KB 2.72 seconds 0.04 seconds
I clicked “Check” again and this is what I got the second time.
1 williamsusan.com 69.71 KB 2.13 seconds 0.03 seconds
2 weshop-youbuy.com 73.69 KB 3.31 seconds 0.04 seconds
The third time produced this
1 williamsusan.com 69.71 KB 3.14 seconds 0.05 seconds
2 weshop-youbuy.com 73.69 KB 2.77 seconds 0.04 seconds
From what I can see, the load speeds are also affeded by the hosting server stress at that time being shared hosting.
I’ve done some optimization but still look to speed up weshop-webuy.com some more 🙂

Must be the fastest blog to load in Sweden.

Excellent tool, I didn’t know it. From now on I will use constantly to check my site’s speed.
Good advice as usual 🙂
Mike, you are right about the inconsistency regarding the file sizes. I guess the service only consider part of the website structure, say the HTML code.
Check out this other service, it is not reliable for the speed but it seems to break down the files that composed your website:
I was looking at this for my empuriabrava site and the Web Speed Test views the page as being 7.23kb in size. However, the elements that make the page are as follows:
header = 0.94
index = 5.96
footer = 1.16
image = 25.8
css file = 6.8
Total Page Size = 40.66kb – a big difference from the 7.23 being tested.
menghua, I think that the speed varies even for the same website due to network factors. The average speed should be consistent over the time, though.

Very interesting tool. My main blog takes 6.72 secs to load. I’ll be interested in your post on how to shorten load times.
Just came across this blog recently BTW. Good stuff here!
engtech.. that’s really fast!
Seriously, I doubt the usage of this tool. The speed varies every time I click CHECK. How do they determine the speed anyway? Which location do they tested from? hmm…
engtech, that is a pretty good speed, you have a large page but at least it is loading fast!
Me thinks I need to compress the content on my blog.

Ironicly, that page seems to take quite a while to load.
that is good, it has a lot to do with the web host also.
Mine supposedly loads in 0.85 secs.
