I´m in the middle of optimizing the speed of my website, and in that process I came across pingdom.com, where they have a very good and easy to use tool to diagnose the speed of my site.
If anyone knows about pingdom tools I hope you can help me with my questions..
After running the benchmark on my site multiple times, and from different test-servers, I get more or less the same stats..:
Here is a short load time analysis of my site:
Time Spent per State
In all the test runs I have made the pattern is the same.. "Connect" takes up 90-95% of the overall loading time.
As I understand it this means that something is causing the browser to use a huge amount of time simply connecting to the server.
Does anyone know what could most likely cause an abnormal "Connect-number" like the one I´m getting?
I simply don´t know where to start looking..
