    If you want to measure how fast your website is loading then take a look at

    Code:
    http://webwait.com
    It loads your website 10 times to get a good loading time value. And it really loads the site not only guess how long it will take like most of such sites.

    I found out how to automatically compress my website. So I managed to make the website from 20KB to 4KB. Which means less traffic. And on top of that it loads 20% faster.

    You can check if the compression is enabled by visiting

    Code:
    http://www.gidnetwork.com/tools/gzip-test.php
    It tells you if enabled and how good the compression is. At the startsite there is a link where you can see how to implement the compression. Its very simple.

    Hope its new for someone... :)

    Thanks

    personally i use this site.
    http://analyze.websiteoptimization.com/

    this will determine your speed in different internet connections and also compress your css and html files so you can use them and speed up your site.

    I think its only guessing what time it needs to load the website depending on the imagesizes and so on. Everytime I get the same numbers. Dont know if true.

    And the speedtest doesnt find out if a website is compressed. The only thing related to compressing on this site seems to be a paid service?

    By the way. The best website for testing SEO-Settings seems to me
    Code:
    http://www.woorank.com
    Its a tip from another BHW-Member. Dont know who that was.

    Here is a free open-source Firefox plugin from Google to aid in assessing a website's download speed:
