My Google Page Speed Nightmare

On February 13, 2013, I got an invitation to try out Google Page Speed service. I did. I reconfigured my servers. I was excited to triple the speed for readers of my website. And then the thing just turned into a nightmare.

I’ve sunk countless hours into getting Google Page Speed to work and it never has for me for very long. Instead, it has kept knocking my website off-line, and driving down my number of regular readers by half. It was a royal pain to kill off as well. Every time I thought I had the thing disabled, it would come back and knock my website off-line. Tonight, with help from my hosting company, I believe I have finally killed it.
