I added Argo to a high volume client site today. It’s supposed to save 318 minutes of latency per month, as per the emailed message. The site is pretty fast already though so I’m skeptical. 19,080,000 milliseconds saved across 52,561 page loads (creating 2,163,163 requests) per month = 363ms saved per page load.
GA says the average page load time is 4.6s. If all goes well, that should decrease to about 4.2s.
I look forward to the results! And I’ll share them here next Friday (if I remember).
If I may be a cheap jerk for a moment… why is Argo something we have to pay extra for? The price of Pro was tripled not too long ago. And Argo seems like a maintenance upgrade to what a CDN is supposed to be - optimized routing of traffic. Some of this stuff is above my head so I could be missing something elementary!
