In August, Google added a few more gadgets to their toolbox:
• Page Speed helps website designers/hosters assess speed on their sites and makes recommendations for speeding things up. A website that takes too long to load is bad for business. Visitors are not likely to wait more than a few seconds before flitting off to another site. With Page Speed you can test the performance of your site. If the site is slow, Page Speed will help you reduce resource utilization and optimize network bandwidth usage.
• Tips for Hosters offers tips for website designers/hosters to help their customers enhance their sites and use tools like Google Analytics and Google Translate in order to reach a broader audience. Hosters can offer convenience and improved accessibility of tools, while saving platform costs and earning referral fees at the same time
If you are a website designer or hoster, you should think about taking advantage of some or all of Google’s new gadgets. Sure, Google developed them primarily to increase their own profits, but why not go along for the ride and use them to boost traffic and business on your website as well?
