List of Free Site Performance Test to Check Your Site Speed

As the title says, basically in this post i’ll be listing the free website performance test service that i often use to test this site for performance (or other site performance). And obviously if i say free, that mean it is free without registration needed in order to use their service unless you want to go with higher plan with some of the service listed here that will cost you some money of course

Anyway here’s the list of free web page test service

Webpagetesthttp://www.webpagetest.org

Webpagetest try to simulate on how fast your site loaded using Internet Explorer 7/8 from several location from US to China (although it’d be better in my opinion if they also add support for other browser such as Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome) and at the same time also capture on how your site looks like to Internet Explorer users

Other than that if you prefer to see how fast your site loaded, you can also choose to record a video of your site being loaded. So far this is the only service i know that offer you to record a video of your site being loaded and also give you a detailed checklist about every object found on your site from Keep-Alive to ETag

Site speed is a factor in your search rankings

Obviously by now you should know that site speed is a factor on Google Search results as stated by the Google Websearch team recently. And here’s what they say about this

Like us, our users place a lot of value in speed — that’s why we’ve decided to take site speed into account in our search rankings. We use a variety of sources to determine the speed of a site relative to other sites.

Because for me since 1% can still be considered as number despite small, i’ve tried my best to optimize this blog further by applying various wordpress optimization technique to this blog so it can be loaded much faster to this blog visitors

Duplicate Content ?I guess you’ve already heard about the new tags feature (basically it’s just the same as site categories) that is built into the core of WordPress 2.3.
