Nuffnang Analytics is one of my daily visit website. I use it to track my blogs’ unique visitor by hour. With it, I can understand my visitor visit trend on hourly basis. And will use Google Analytics as advanced tool for daily, weekly and month.
Hehe… The new Nuffnang Analytics is not perfect. The chart title is always “This Week’s Visits: ” no matter which period you select from today, this week, last week and last month.
Feel your website loading speed is slow? Don’t feel it. Gets a free tool from Pingdom to check your website loading time. It is as easy as ABC. Just key in your website address and click ‘Test now’. You will get result like below…
How much loading time is your website?
Do you change Google Webmaster Tools crawl rate? Increase or decrease its speed? Don’t increase it if you don’t have fast web server like the one that I use ~ HostMonster. Hehe. Just kidding. But by increase the crawl rate, Googlebot will visit your website more. Therefore, do make sure that your web server can manage that.
Google Webmaster Tools custom crawl rate will last for 90 days only. And you need to reconfigure it again then. For my case, I will need to update it on 19 January 2010. I missed around 2 weeks as the custom crawl rate expired on early this month.
What will faster crawl rate does? More pages will be indexed in Google search database. So do you want to increase Google Webmaster Tools crawl rate?
Website loading speed is very important. Nobody likes to wait long for a website to load. Therefore, a good hosting is a must. And you need to have supportive team from them too. Else it will take even longer time if your hosting have problem.
My friends told me that my blog was slow during loading. I tested myself and discovered the same issue ~ slowness like “waiting for www.jayceooi.com” for 10 to 20 seconds. Then the website started to load. How to improve the loading time then? Check your hosting server status is the first time that you need to do.
As you can see, there is alert on server load ~ Box under heavy load — you may experience degraded system performance. You need to contact support team if you continue seeing this message. Else your website will be as slow as turtle.
Another thing to check is the service status. All of the services should be okay most of the time. A good hosting will rectify any issue occurs without us inform them. However, I did face problem with my previous hosting company. I need to contact them to bring up the SQL server myself. And they don’t even know that that SQL server was down. What a joke… By the way, my hosting support team solved the issue before I report it.
Finally, be sure that you select a good web hosting like I did. I am using HostMonster. How about you?
49th of top 100 Malaysian blogs
The ranking is based on Alexa and Technorati. Personally, I don’t like Alexa because it does not reflex the actual visit or page view. Some websites which have very low traffic but have very high rank in Alexa. Technorati is about the same. If the blogs does not clawed by Technorati spider, there are not counted. So you will have low ranking if most of your incoming links are from non-technorati clawed blogs.
