Our home page is about 110K+ in size and is displaying all of our categories and the most recent 675 articles accepted into our site.
If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that our site is nearly 100% dynamically generated upon each request.
Yesterday, we changed the home page only to not being dynamically generated on the fly upon each request, but rather changed it to be statically generated and only updated 2 to 3 times a day with a cron job.
Why are we doing this? We have a feeling that increasing our speed of delivery is going to be a key ingredient to reaching our page view and unique daily visitor goals.
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for us as to which pages within our site load too slow for you that we could improve on?
