Optimizing Page Speed performance for issaonline.edu
Recently we have worked together with The International Sports Sciences Association to optimize their website by appling automatic PageSpeed optimization
via IISpeed and deploying a CDN. We nearly made the site show twice as fast!
After we optimized issaonline.edu, we used Google PageSpeed's split A/B testing framework plus Microsoft PowerBI to analyse the results.
Summarized, the experiment we ran shows us that:
On average, page load time was 3860ms for the unoptimized group vs 3130ms for the optimized group.
Note that Page Load Time factors in external requests which we cannot control.
On average the first paint time for the browsers was 2220ms for the unoptimized group, vs 1360ms for the optimized group.
That is nearly a 2X speedup!
Averages don't really say it all though, because they are very sensitive to outliers. So here are some histograms
that show how our work affected speed. The optimized histograms look much better.
