    Improve Page Load Times by Leeching Bandwidth from Google

    The title is a bit of a joke; Google wants you to leech their bandwidth.

    If your web page is calling one of the supported libraries, you can call it from Google's CDN (Content Delivery Network) instead of from your own server by using the Google AJAX Libraries API.

    This will save you a bit of bandwidth and will make your pages load faster for most of your site visitors.

    The libraries currently supported are:



    I think it's hilarious that Google's CDN is supporting YUI.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    that shows how much they care about Web and not just about themselves (no flame-wars please )

    also this has one more effect,

    I tried compressing jquery and other scripts but the compression done at google CDN is comparatively larger then the compression i can achieve at my webhost.

    just adding my two cents.

    So can I just replace this with the paths on Google's page?

    PHP Code:
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.runningonlinebusiness.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.3.2'></script> 
    Also, this seems a bit different, so can I do it with this as well?

    PHP Code:
    <script type='text/javascript'  src='http://www.runningonlinebusiness.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.form.js?ver=2.02m'></script>

    Course, if you use Google's libraries, you are relying on the "Cloud" to not crash ... enough moving parts for me that I'll give it a miss to put code dependencies in Big G's hands...too much effort for too little ROI with multiple sites. Especially if they change their minds (Big G) and I have to switch back at a latter date.

    They (or any other big business) would likely care less if it creates more work on our end, so I will just watch for now. If anyone sees a 10+% jump in visitors that you can attribute to the speed increase, I would still only probably consider for 1-2 sites.

    I do think its funny they are supporting the Yahoo library...makes you wonder if Big G considers Apple or Microsoft the bigger threat.
    Cheers,
    James

    Agreed,such a small increase in speed is hardly noticeable,not that I am saying you shouldn't try to force any bit of speed you can,but if have to work on it a lot and its not reliable,then those 10% (probably much less) aren't worth the trouble.

    Actually, you would be surprised about how much Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo! are still connected with each other. As far as I remember, those 3 still have data sharing agreements in place.

    For example, they still share the same database of banned sites--if you get banned on one search engine then most likely you'll notice that the other 2 search engines will end up banning you, too, because they share the data amongst each other.
