Google Page Speed Service

RE: Google Page Speed Service
Thanks Pat,

I'll load up another site, that has had Google Analytics running on it for some time.

Wait a few days and see what the results show.

One thing I do like about PSS is the time saving as well, I don't need to upload my image files to Gogrid, compress the css, js and upload that as well, quite a time saver!

Do you have any real-user monitoring on the pages (Google Analytics, mPulse or something like that)? That should give you a much better idea of the end-user performance.

Any accelerator is usually going to make the base page a little slower because it has to go through the accelerator and back to the origin instead of directly to the origin. Most of them can easily make up the additional delay and more with the optimizations they do to the page and in the serving of the front-end resources.

That said, the base page can also sometimes get faster if the content is cacheable on the edge. There are also various PSS filters that can cache part of the HTML and serve it while still waiting for the back-end response from the origin (so TTFB will be much faster and external content will start downloading even if the base HTML overall takes longer).

Something like Montis is good for measuring availablity and consistency of the server response times but isn't terribly useful for understanding the user experience.
