Google's Page Speed Service = CDN (Content Delivery Network)

http://googlecode.blogspot.com/2011/...rformance.html

Page Speed Service is an online service that automatically speeds up loading of your web pages. To use the service, you need to sign up and point your siteís DNS entry to Google. Page Speed Service fetches content from your servers, rewrites your pages by applying web performance best practices, and serves them to end users via Google's servers across the globe. Your users will continue to access your site just as they did before, only with faster load times. Now you donít have to worry about concatenating CSS, compressing images, caching, gzipping resources or other web performance best practices.

I already have a CDN (CloudFlare).

I wonder if I can use both at the same time?

No, Sitespeed is Googles version of CDN. They claim that it will be fast. Im not very satisfied with the speed of CDNs like MaxCDN and Cloudfare, so it will be interesting to see what Google Site Speed will do.

Its a highly interesting development since Google partly ranks websites based upon their sitespeed. Using their service seems to equate optimizing sitespeed and therefore increase Google Search ranking = more visitors.

I don't see how any service can speed up sites without caching data- and if they cache pages you're not real-time anymore.

they cache jpg/png/gif/css/js ...
and in addition CDNs (content distributation networks) are meant to serve the data via a server which is closest to your location.

Let's say you have a user in canada and one in germany and your server is in england. That's not going to be this fast. But now the CDN has a server in america and one in berlin. The canadian user will be served via the american one and the german one via berlin. -> Speed improvement for both.


That beeing said. We won't use it for the same reason we do not use google analytics. Point is, google will know every single one of your users (via ip, browser settings ...) and can crossreference that to whatever data they want (not saying they will, just saying they can). As this does collide with our data privacy policy and >90% of our users are from germany the gain does not outweight the negative (for us that is).

Man I totally forgot about Page Speed. If you add it as an app, I'll surely use it. :yes:

I'm thinking about buying your $20 a month plan too. I love your free service so far. I'm just waiting for this First Byte Time issue to clear up. My site keeps getting an F on www.webpagetest.org with cloudflare activated. With it off it's an A. Not sure how important that score is anymore...

Since hackers keep hacking stuff, you'll have more important stuff to worry about than Google. They've pissed off all countries around the world which will give Governments an excuse to invade our online privacy and violate our rights way more than Google or Facebook ever could.

We're working on it. It appears to be some sort of algorithm issue more than anything with some of these services & we're seeing what we can do to help fix it.
Thanks man!

I eagerly await this as well. Otherwise, I love CloudFlare and highly recommend it.

You should turn your private messaging on.

Same thing happening to me with Cloudflare. What's with the cookies? I find myself having to relog in over and over at times.

I know some say CDN's aren't needed, but what does one do when their server is in California, and for some reason, most of the people trying to access the site are from the UK?

I agree. I am trying out an unmanaged VPS server in Germany and I need either two to work. Wish I could hire someone to figure this out but I don't even know where to look.

There are a lot of other CDN's out there that might work better than Cloudflare. I had to stop using it completely now.

I am using Google Page Speed, use Proxy to IP plugin with it. You won't have the problems anymore.
