    Show off your best results (You should probably blue out your site...)

    I would get the ball rolling except I'm ashamed of mine.

    This is my best site, but I have to admit that it's just HTML and inline CSS with a ton of very small pictures. That should give you a clue to what the site is about. My other sites load a lot slower and I have no clue what to do about it. I need to optimize the images on the one above, it might go even faster. But it's going to slow down big time once I add some ads to it. Those are always so slow.

    What type of hosting are you using for this site? That's usually a pretty easy way to get some pagespeed gains when you've already done everything you can re: images, optimizing code, etc.

    That is a typical shared hosting account, believe it or not. It's just the the site and page is so slim. It might even get faster if I wasn't using a big splash image above the fold and some other images as the page goes on. I might be able to crunch the images more too. It's still a pretty big page size for being quite bare.

    Seeing as Im the ConversionKing, I feel obligated to mention a factoid I read one day.

    I remember reading that for some fraction of loading time that Amazon was slower on a particular day, it costed them on the order of millions of dollars as people abandoned their carts or moved to different tabs or whatever. The more traffic you have, the more it matters. But even for your own small funnel, you can increase conversions by a fraction of a percent and over time it will add up. If it's a high priced product, it can make a huge difference.

    I had to do it one more time, just in case for the non-believers:

    ^^ latest side project - CDN not turned on yet, and it's on a slow shared test environment. Once project goes live on it's own server and i turn on the CDN, thing should be flying...

    @CCarter you are faster than lightning!!

    I seem to recall reading one of your posts a while back about how you kept your sites speedy. Perhaps a re-post in the BuSo? I remember a fair few of your tips, have made a few moves to speed things up but can't TOUCH what you are doing!

    i've also used www.webpagetest.org to test TTFB as this seems to be a slight ranking factor as well!

    I clearly have some work to do...
    [​IMG]
    Based on webpagetest.org my first byte time is abysmal.
    And so many requests!!!

    Gotta figure that out.

    Yikes! Get those requests down and those scores should skyrocket! Combine JS, CSS files (I usually manually try to combine CSS and javascript files to avoid the need to use another plugin, etc) and combine Icons and logos into 1 Image Sprites and align w/ CSS. That will help a lot with speed.

    Good LUCK!

    While it's not 100/100, the only thing I am paying for is the domain. I'm using Heroku + Cloudflare to host it for free.

    I went the lazy plugin route to minify, optimize, and a cache plugin. Different times of day seem to give different results... and my actual grade went down. I still see too many requests and am not "leveraging browser caching" well at all...but still enjoying the load time!

    I think I have you all covered. The actual site stats didn't show up, but this was the report at the bottom of pingdom:

    Just ran another one after a new scheduled post went up - Come at me bros!

    Straight after migrating to new old host. No caching, no CDN, shared hosting.
    OK so far, will be nice with a bit of optimizing.

    This is actually the host I moved away from after years without any troubles because everyone was complaining about them, and I believed it for some reason.

    I spent the last year with nothing but hosting issues, from several places. Bought back in with Black Friday deal.

    Anyone care to guess which company?
