The results are in, and they’re good. After compressing .php, .css and .js files without mod_gzip or mod_deflate and sending the correct headers to leverage browser caching, Ardamis.com now has a Google Page Speed score of 93/100.
Page Speed just keeps getting better, and it keeps getting tougher to score well. I’m happy, but not satisfied yet. The remaining hurdle is to serve static content from a cookieless domain. I’m looking into the CDN offered by Amazon.com, but it’s a paid service.
