Top 10 Web Performance Blog Posts of 2012

Top 10 Web Performance Blog Posts of 2012As we at Dotcom-Monitor are back at it after the holidays, we thought it would be interesting to see which web performance blog posts over the past year have sparked the most interest. We weren’t surprised to see that our lighthearted Server Room Cabling Hell piece was our most popular (what IT nerd wouldn’t want a good laugh around cabling nightmares?), but we were also pleased to see more meaty topics on DNS Diagnostics, Cyber Attacks & Website Performance Monitoring topped the list as well. It was also cool to see people reading and passing along “Web Monitoring 101”  type pieces, such as The Great Firewall Test and our Internet Backbone for Noobs Infographic. Due to the numbers we are seeing we take this as a great indicator that we are both supporting the web performance world with valuable information, as well as educating the masses on the importance of web performance and website monitoring. This is encouraging as our goal is to constantly improve and support the web performance world.

Here are our Top 10 Web Performance Blog Posts of 2012:
