Page Speed

Google Unveils New Tool For Faster Web
In Google, there's an organization known as the "Make the Web Faster" initiative, and today, they presented the world with a solution for faster pageload. Something new named mod_pagespeed is supposed to make streamlining a site a quick, easy process.

Google explained in an email, "We just launched a new open-source Apache module called mod_pagespeed that any webmasters can use to quickly and automatically optimize their sites. (It's like Page Speed, but makes the changes automatically.)"

Mod_pagespeed is worth looking into because, "It can reduce page load times by up to 50%. mod_pagespeed should be of definite use to webmasters, considering it's common knowledge that would-be visitors bail when things take too long to load, and as Google factors site speed into Web search rankings, having a fast site will help ensure that would-be visitors are directed to it in the first place. In any event, it's a good bet that more site speed tools and suggestions are on the way.
