How You Can Benefit From Using A CDN

Content Delivery Network

Are you looking for a simple and cost-effective way to increase the performance of your site? Use a content delivery network!

Content delivery network or CDN for short, is a group of servers located all over the world to work together to automatically optimize the delivery of your Web site to your visitors. A WordPress CDN caches your static content (things such as images, CSS and javascript) on these global servers. When someone visits your site, it automatically chooses the shortest CDN and, eventually, the fastest way to get content for your visitors. Your content is routed through the nearest in proximity to your visitors, optimize your site  server speed.

Still confused? Think of yourself as a pizza delivery company with only one international restaurant. I know this sounds absurd, but stay with me. If you’re located in New Jersey, as throughout the world are going to deliver the pizzas to your customers in Paris? This would require a few days right? Well you wouldn’t be delivery 1 pizzas in Paris, now would you? It would take too long, and who loves peppers cold anyway? Instead, set up a chain of restaurants closer to your customers. Is essentially what makes a content delivery network. Delivers pizza (your content) from a restaurant (server) closer to your customers.

Who can use a CDN? In virtually every webmaster! If you  New Jersey blogger, you don ‘t , your web site has a slow loading for readers, Paris. Your readers don’t actually don  doesn’t care that your website is slow because your website  server is located on the other side of the globe. For them, your web site is just plain slow and don ‘t have the patience “to deal with it.

Remember that you have about 6-8 seconds for site visitors to decide whether they want to stay or bounce. Don… Do not allow those precious seconds tick the way because you think the info there any solution to speed up your site.

Are you not particularly concerned about the speed of your site or how fast it loads? Another factor important to decide or not to take the time to implement a CDN that your site is the fact that complex of Google ranking algorithm takes into account a site speed. With this in mind, it obvious to put in places a network of distribution of content for your site. The fact that you can get better organic search ranking simply by setting up a CDN for your site definitely puts a different light on things, doesn’t it?
