Is Your Website Fast Enough? (AWESOME NEW TOOL!)

I just tested mine and it says "This server responds faster than 72% of our 10 million tested websites" - LOVE IT!

If you're running your business online, you must have a FAST server for your website or you could lose thousands in sales and conversions. 

Did you know that...

- Nearly half of internet users expect your site to load in less than two seconds?
- 40% will leave completely if it takes longer than three seconds to appear?

Find out your server performance using this wonderful tool http://www.bitcatcha.com/.

It will help you determine the performance of your host (response times  8 different locations, speed, etc.)

IF your website is slow, it's probably time to change your web host.

Local Malay "sweets"
Lin in Malaysia

In Malay, the word kuih refers to any number of sweet delicacies that you would eat as dessert, at tea time or just for a snack. There is no direct translation for it, this picture gives you an idea of what I'm talking about. 

More often than not kuih (kuih-muih in plural) are steamed and although as mentioned above, they tend to be sweet, it is not uncommon to have savoury ones too especially in the North East of Malaysia. 

For example, the pandan leaf wrapped item right at the front is called Pulut Inti and it's a combination of glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and topped with a sweet soft coconut candy type topping/filling known as "inti".

The green roll is a coconut milk and pandan flavoured pancake stuffed with said "inti" and it's called Kueh (kuih) Dadar.

The pink wonder is called Kuih Lapis and the layers are individually steamed to form the final result. This is very different from the festive "Kek Lapis".

We went to KLCC for a little wander and walk and I couldn't help myself and bought these back and pigged out!

Happy to Announce the Release of Search Engine Ranking Factors 2015 by +Moz
https://moz.com/blog/ranking-factors-2015

I'm excited to announce the results of Moz's biannual Search Engine Ranking Correlation Study and Expert Survey, a.k.a. Ranking Factors.

This is the largest study of this kind we've ever undertaken, including our Expert Survey of over 150 professional search marketers, and a ranking correlation survey of over 17,000 keywords.

In addition to the classic signals we've studied in the past, this time we worked with 3 data partners including +SimilarWeb +Ahrefs and +DomainTools to study additional correlations.

The Expert Survey also includes valuable insight into Google's broad algorithm, negative ranking factors, and the future of search.

Take a look, let us know what you think! https://moz.com/blog/ranking-factors-2015
