    Website loading speed determines the fastest possible time your website loads. Have you ever wondered how fast is the loading speed of your website?

    Check out this useful web tool:
    http://www.iwebtool.com/speed_test

    Just enter the domain of your site (multiple domains are accepted) and press Check. It will now test the loading speed of your site.

    I checked BusinessAdviceForum.com's speed and this is the result:
    http://www.iwebtool.com/speed_test?domain=http://www.businessadviceforum.com

    It took 0.39 seconds to load the homepage.

    Here's a comparison check with my blog:
    http://www.iwebtool.com/speed_test?...ssadviceforum.com http://www.jefusion.info

    Although loading time is a bit different now, it is still fast compare to other sites I knew. :D

    Thanks for sharing that with us. Business Advice Forum loads in 1.62 seconds when I test it at that site. I suppose the site will load at different speeds at different times, depending on how efficiently the server is running or how much traffic there is on the site, at a particular time.

    Yes.You are correct. I think it also depends on how many people are online at the time of testing.
    Luckily, my blog loads between 0 seconds and 0.1 seconds. :D

    Research shows that website speed is the second biggest factors affecting conversion rates (second only to web design).
