When Google analyzes my sites it is telling me to an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources. Can you tell me how and where I can do this?

Hi Leisa,  I just finished looking into this as Drew is off today.  They did reply back to him but unfortunately, the way our system is set up, there's really nothing that can be done at this time. Because of the way our Sitebuilder and hosting system works, there are certain things that are blocked and there is not access for what you need. This was forwarded to our developers for consideration of making changes in the future but we don't have any eta and can't promise any changes.

Hi Leisa,   There are several variables that could cause slowness in the SiteBuilder, so here are a few things to check. 

Browser addons/pluggins:  If you have too many addons running in your browser try disabling and/or completely removing any pluggins that you don't need.  You can also try a different browser.  Generally Firefox or Chrome work the best.
How can I remove 3rd party browser plug-ins, add-ons, and extensions from my web browser?
 

Your internet speed/quality: Speed and quality are two different things that can affect performance of the SiteBuilder.  Sitebuilder depends on both upload and download performance, whereas most other websites are primarily depending on download speed.  You can test your upload & download speed and quality on several sites such as, http://freeola.com/line-test/  or http://www.pingtest.net/

Upload speed can have a big impact especially if your site has a lot of images or other media files that it is uploading and saving.  If you have any images that are in excess of  1Mb they are probably too big.  

If your run internet test and it shows any packet loss, then there's a definite quality issue where information is being lost and can cause a variety of problems. 
If your test shows any packet loss or SiteBuiilder seems excessively slow you may want to run a Trace Route report to identify any possible problems somewhere in the network. 
How do I run a Trace Route (tracert) ?   If you see any lines in the trace report that say "timeout" then it's likely an internet/network issue. 


Security software: Uncommon but possible.  Try temporarily disabling your security software/virus scan/firewall program.

Not a lot of plug-ins just some adware and pop-up blockers. I tried to run the ping test on both sites but the configuration of the laptop I was using didn't allow it. It's a business computer confiugred to run on a network, so it was probably in the admin security settings. I switched to my personal computer. The results for the test was
Packet loss 0%
Ping 39 ms
Jitter 8 ms
Grade=A

The results of the speed test varied depending on the time of day.
Midday at about 2 pm my download was between 11-41 to 16.63 mbps and upload was 1.28-1.35
at 4:30 it my download was 3.6 mbps and my upload was 1.39

I'm going to try it on my personal computer for awhile. Thanks!
