Andy King, of Web Site Optimization,
LLC is sponsoring a cause
campaign to help get the road hogs off the information superhighway.
Web site developers and owners can help “clear out the sludge” in the pipes
by following the methods outlined in Andy King’s book titled “Speed
Up Your Site – Web Site Optimization”. Individuals who want to
be part of the solution and not the problem, can help the cause (and themselves)
by promoting “Speed Up The Web” methods on their web sites.
Detailed instructions are available at the following link:
"Andy King wisely understands the theories that justify rapid website performance AND he cleverly lays out the practical ways for readers to make it happen. He shows how high-tech practitioners can speed up their websites and push forward to universal usability. Don't wait for broadband, do it now!" stated Dr. Ben Shneiderman, author of “Leonardo’s Laptop” and noted Human Computer Interaction researcher.
Slow web pages are costing an enormous amount of money. For example, according to a 2001 Zona Research study, $25 billion in potential sales was lost online due to web performance issues. The most frequent complaint in user surveys is “slow web sites” (“Speed Up Your Site,” 2003). A recent analysis of the top ten news sites revealed an average of 145K for their home pages (Web Site Optimization, 2003).
"For years, site developers and their clients have drooled at the thought of mass broadband access. But most users still experience the web via pokey dial-up accounts, and bloated sites remain a barrier to usability and good experience. “Speed Up Your Website” is a delicious cookbook filled with low-fat recipes that can save your customers time, lower your hosting costs, and help your site attract and retain visitors instead of sending them away empty handed." - Jeffrey Zeldman, Web Designer and author of Designing With Web Standards. http://www.zeldman.com/dwws/
Don't Make Me Wait! The new book
titled "Speed Up Your Site - Web Site Optimization" by Andy King, and the
companion web site are about designing "speedy" web sites with techniques
