PowerDropping.Com – Deimos needs to optimize his site ASAP

Overview
Deimos came across an interesting new site (for fellow EntreCarders) and realized that he has not optimized his site for a long time. If interested, do check out the site to find out why Deimos decided to optimize his site the soonest possible.

Why should I give a Poke?
It is always good to optimized one’s site so that it loads fast, thus first timers who have less patience to wait for slow loading sites would not bugger off without even checking out one’s site in the first place. Besides, having a fast loading site does not hurt.

Get listed on PowerDropping.Com
This appears to be a new domain and there seems to be quite a number of EntreCarders’ sites listed in there, the links are not plastered with the nofollow tag (yet?) and the possibility of Big-G branding that site as a link farm is there.

I found my site being listed near the very bottom of the list, which means would kinda imply that my site is not really very optimized and thus does not loads as fast?

Forgot to mention the URL of this site, it is PowerDropping.Com

Deimos’s Thoughts
I blogged about this issue about site optimization before, in that article I listed a couple of useful sites to help check one’s site’s performance, do check it out if interested:

Is your site optimized enough?
Are you going to optimize your site after reading this?

    Powerdropping.com would seem to be useful to chaindroppers, but if there’s no nofollow tag, well, good job.

    Go Deimos Go! Optimize your site!

    @Pete:
    Aye, useful for Chain Droppers, I agree. 🙂
    However, I recognize many sites from that PowerDropping.Com List. 😐
    Many in that list do not reciprocate EntreCard drops at all. ➡

    I experience the same, Deimos. Your site is one of the slowest in the Entrecard network. But I’m dropping on yours anyway; you’re a good guy. ;o)

    Hey Deimos!

    I agree with Marcus, I’ll drop on your site even if it doesn’t load fast. You’re using wordpress though…did you see Turnip’s post on optimizing the tables? that might make your site load faster

    http://turnipofpower.com/2008/02/08/optimize-your-tables/

    hope it helps!

    @BaseGuardian:
    How did you get the 8.02 sec? 💡
    If from Pingdom Tools, that is quite fast. 🙄
    My site is about 9 seconds if using Pingdom Tools. 😐

    =======================================================

    @Marcus:
    Oh My Poking Goodness (OMPG)! 😮
    How slow is my site? 😯
    Do let me know, so I can improve. 🙂
    Thanks for the support. :mrgreen:

    =======================================================

    @Emmett:
    Thanks! You all rock! 😳
    I have read Turnip’s post, looks risk free enough to give it a try. ğŸ˜Ž
    I gonna try it out when I get back to the city. 😈

    =======================================================

    @techsnack:
    Send a message to the owner of the site. 😛

    I too saw this list and noted that my site did a lot better than I was afraid it would. I didn’t think to make a post about it, though. So it’s a great idea to call attention to blog optimization!

    @ Deimos, Turnip’s is certainly a good idea. You may also want to optimize your blog HTML and CSS wise, getting rid of unnecessary coding and other stuff that slows your site down. For example, whenever you load something from somewhere else (like PW, BlogCataLog, etc) you are dependent from them and it may slow your site down.

    @ techsnack, when you go to the site we discuss here you shall find clear step-by-step instructions on how to get in there.

    A tip if you’re using WordPress. Download the WP-Cache Plug-in it will cache your pages and decrease load times.

    I noticed my site made it on the list…not sure how as I always thought my site loaded rather slowly at times.

    I came across powerdropping.com because I noticed visitors coming from it in my stats.

Please do not spam. Thank you.
