Good questions Ian.
>did you increase the pipe to the server as well as increasing the server speed?
I moved the complete site, db, dns etc. to a whole new host.
Much faster, more ram, optimized to perform a lot faster with caching, compression, cdn etc.
Load time significantly reduced, fast and slick. It's a heavy site with quite a bit of images - all on cdn and cached.
However GWC still showing under average and very slow times, even after the move to the new server about 4-5 monts ago.
It's actually bugging me as there's no doubt that the users are experiencing a faster site.
The site hasn't move an inch in total search referrals. Ups and downs, but it's a flat line over 1-2 years.
