Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
In my first attempt to start a website, I chose a poor hosting service—one with overloaded capacity and faulty software. As a result, my site was VERY slow—sometimes taking as much as 18 Seconds! to load during peak hours.
Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that, because during peak hours, I was working my day job, not monitoring my site. But then a friend tipped me off.
You really should check the load speed of your site at different times of the day, and on different days of the week. And check it on a regular basis. If your host is speedy today, adding a few more clients may slow his servers down.
One website that I found that was useful for testing speeds—and for comparing speeds with other sites—is I-Web Tool’s speed test.
I ran the speed test on my own site, and compared it to a couple of my competitors. I’m happy to report that mine is faster!
(Its a competitive guy thing).
