Hi Mark,Wow! That's fast!
Yes, I like Pingdom. I do try to average a few tests, because (at least the first one [caching?] seems to be different). Also, I guess you noticed that clicking on the time segments shown below the main results lets you "drill down" into the components causing each delay.Tried Page Widgets?
I've experimented a bit with using web "Page Widgets", to keep my sales pages more sparse for those in a hurry, yet to pop-up detailed info for those who want it. Still A/B split testing the effectiveness of this, but you might want to check into this method.
This is about that topic I see in some web marketing books about making your pages work for several "personas". You know, how some people want instant gratification and hate dealing with details, while other won't make a decision until every possible "due diligence" item is totally nailed down? How do you persuade these opposite personality types (and there are several more) with just one web page?
So, I tried to solve this dilemma with Page Widgets - and my sales did increase.
"Page Widgets" are things like web page Elevator Panels, Scroll Boxes and such. have used only on static Dreamweaver pages so far - but should work in WordPress (I think and hope).
