|Moving to a New CDN (Content Delivery Network)|
| 8:43 pm on Sep 30, 2009 (gmt 0)|
After reading [webmasterworld.com...] I would like to open the discussion further on CDNs (content delivery network).
Can anyone share their experience of a migration from a larger CDN, say… Akamai to one of the smaller ones? What are the chances of loosing half your traffic overnight! Is the risk worth it?
Tedster pointed out something interesting, is there any way of validating if the CDN is on the KNOWN content distribution “list”? I wonder if Google provides that info?

Nowhere that I've ever heard of.

I made a long term test (12 months) to host all our images and I have not seen any ranking improvement.
I am not serving our images and all other static content directly from our server and also no change.
As far as I am concerned if your server load is always light, let's say 20% cpu, I barely see the need for CDN.
I am receiving 60k uniques per day, but may be when you receive 600k it might e a different thing.
