Question about Cache Static Content
Hello everyone!

I have been using WebPageTest over the last several weeks to try to speed up our website and had a question about Cache Static Content.

My site did not support this originally, but I just updated the web.config file (Windows hosting) to support Cache Static Content.

While I understand the usefulness of this, I noticed that it nearly doubled the time that my site takes to load... My site (as of this morning before the update) was loading in 2.57s, but after enabling Cache, it is loading in 4.19s. I have run several tests through WebPageTest and Chrome Developer Tools, and they are all fairly consistent.

Does Cache Static Content not always make sense? If my website is faster without it, is there really a benefit to having it enabled? Is there a benefit to our search rankings with Google and others to have this enabled anyway?

I am very curious what everyone thinks and if anyone knows why this would result in such a hit to performance. The website is a simple html site (with some css and javascript).

Thank you very much for your help!
