    Well I'm made up.

    I have a complicated Joomla site that's over 1Mb but now loads in 2.29 seconds - very happy!

    Does anyone have any information on whether this will have a meaningful effect on any rankings?

    That's awesome news, I'd be delighted.

    No immediate boost in rankings but it will help as the search engines recognise better visitor stats that were not there before.

    Was it your cloud web site?

    yeah, still tinkering now though.

    Setting up an adwords lander on the office 365 migration page to see if that will bear any fruit!

    lol 14 seconds! Have you thrown it through Google page insights to see what else could be done ? Many people only pay attention to webpagetest.org ,gtmetrix.com and pingdom etc focusing on actual page and server response times..........but they completely forget that perceived page speed which contributes to user-friendliness also matters.

    Images are the biggest bug bear by miles and generally the biggest thing which will effect user experience.

    Well the U.S. Based tool said 14.7ms - to a 123-reg VPS. The biggest changes came from gzip and compressing the lossless PNGs (I didn't know you could do this).

    Will check out page insights too though - thanks!
