After a short hiatus for the holiday season, we will be resuming the web performance meetup in January with a presentation by Mark Isham, CEO of Zoompf, on research he conducted in conjunction with the folks at Moz.com to examine the actual link between web performance and search ranking position.
In this presentation, Mark will be analyzing various performance metrics such as page load time, time to first byte, image size, total page size, and more to help uncover which metrics impact your search experience in which ways.
You can see the original research published here: http://moz.com/blog/how-website-speed-actually-impacts-search-ranking
We will also use the time to answer questions about the difference between these various metrics and how they impact your site in other ways beyond search engine ranking.
Mark is co-organizer of the web performance meetup, and joined Zoompf, a web performance technology startup here in Atlanta, as CEO last January. Mark has worked in e-commerce startups in various leadership roles for the last 13 years and has over 20 years of web engineering experience under his belt. Mark also likes really good beer.
