Test Your Website Speed with Pingdom.com

Old No Comments on Test Your Website Speed with Pingdom.com 12

As GeekBrainDump.com grows one of the questions that comes up is whether or not it is running fast enough for users.  Unfortunately it can be hard to tell if a website is loading slowly due to Hosting Provider issues, or because the end user is having problems.

Pingdom.com gives you tools to test your website from different geographic locations and shows you how long it is taking to load and grades your site against other sites that have been tested.  Beyond that it shows you what files load when your page is downloaded and shows you the size of the files to allow you to determine if your graphics need to be optimized.

I use Pingdom.com a good bit to test my site, and check out what is going on with my competitors.

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
