My web site is fast enough? - kilokontrolyontemi - 12-22-2011 12:09 AM

webpageteset.org web site my speed (load time), 3.646 s were measured. I know very little about SEO. This is enough time? What more can I do if it is not enough. Do you have any advice to me? My web site URL:http://www.kilokontrolyontemi.net/

It's not too bad but there are a couple of things you can do to make it a bit better. Looking at your test ( http://www.webpagetest.org/result/111221_6D_2KH1M/ ):

- Your banner png is really pushing out the time and it's pretty big at 148k. Saving it as an 8-bit dithered PNG would cut that down to 58k (and it looks like the original is already dithered so it looks virtually identical). As a jpeg you could get it down to ~35K and still look really good.

- You should look at the other png images as well to see if you can improve them as well.

- You should see if you can combine the different module images into a sprite.

Those tweaks would get you closer to 2 seconds (and probably under 2 seconds from within Europe).

The time should be a lot faster if it is measured from Europe instead of the US but if you have a global user base you should look into a CDN.
