Faster Web with Google mod_pagespeed Module for Apache

Google, on it’s initiative “Make the web faster”,  introduced a new module for the Apache HTTP Server called mod_pagespeed to speed up the websites and improve search experience of users. The tool works on the server so directly improves the loading time of the webpages.

Last year, Google introduced a tool that gives suggestions to developers to speed up web pages called Page Speed.  Page speed can be helpful tool to monitor the backfalls of your website but it needs a lot of effort to implement necessary suggestions about server configuration, HTML, JavaScript, CSS and images. mod_pagespeed automates many of Page Speed recommedations and delivers automated SEO with minimal developer and webmaster effort.

So today, we’re introducing a module for the Apache HTTP Server called mod_pagespeed to perform many speed optimizations automatically. We’re starting with more than 15 on-the-fly optimizations that address various aspects of web performance, including optimizing caching, minimizing client-server round trips and minimizing payload size. We’ve seen mod_pagespeed reduce page load times by up to 50% (an average across a rough sample of sites we tried) — in other words, essentially speeding up websites by about 2x, and sometimes even faster.

Some of automated tasks mod_pagespeed provides are as follows:

  • Making changes to the pages built by the Content Management Systems (CMS) with no need to make changes to the CMS itself,
  • Recompressing an image when its HTML context changes to serve only the bytes required (typically tedious to optimize manually), and
  • Extending the cache lifetime of the logo and images of your website to a year, while still allowing you to update these at any time.
