Ping Them

There are times as a blogger you need to run some diagnostics on your site in terms of load time, identifying glitches that affect load time or perhaps trying to ensure that your site is user friendly enough.

I have just stumbled across yet another site diagnostic online available here via Pingdom. The site is simple and. straightforward. All you need to do is to key in your site. Click on the ‘Test Now’ button and immediately in seconds a chart ill be generated in hierarchy showing whats the connect time to load eac objects embedded in yoursite i.e. single page file, javascript applets, css files, image, feed, database query etc.

Showing the load times of individual objects embedded within your site.

Archive of tests

The tests results are quite reliable and can be used for your own benchmarking. The only down; site is, it doesn’t rate your site.
