  • The speed of a website may be one of the most overlooked factors which could drive additional leads, revenues and search engine rankings for your organization.source: http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2085970/Why-Marketers-Must-Care-About-Site-SpeedAmazon found that every 100ms of delay reduced revenue by 1%. For a company as large as Amazon that can represent billions of dollars of lost revenue. Bing found that a 1 second delay in load time led to 2.8% drop in revenue. A 2 second delay saw revenue fall by 4.3%.Yahoo found that a reduction in page load of 400ms caused a 5-9% drop in traffic.Google published a study that showed when a slight delay was added to web searches – as little as just a tenth of a second – searchers used Google up to 0.6% less, and this behaviour continued for as long as 6 weeks after the delay itself was removed. This shows that users not only noticed the difference and altered their behaviour, but also that they continued to avoid the site for many weeks later. More dramatically, Google found in another experiment that increasing the number of search results on a page from 10 to 30 – and consequently increasing the load time of the page from 400ms to 900ms – led to 25% reduction in traffic. Source: http://www.seoandy.com/optimisation/website-performance-seo-5-easy-tips-and-hacks-to-speed-up-your-site/

  • Changing – adding new diagram#
  • A global distribution system (GDS) is a network operated by a company that enables automated transactions between Vendors[disambiguation needed] and booking agents in order to provision travel related services to the end consumers. A GDS can link services, rates and bookings consolidating products and services across all three travel sectors: i.e., airline reservations, hotel reservations, car rentals, and activities.GDS is different from a computer reservations system which is a reservation system used by the respective vendors. Primary customers of GDS are travel agents (both online and office based) to make reservation on various reservations systems run by the vendors. GDS holds no inventory, the inventory is held on vendors reservation system itself. A GDS system[1] will have real-time link to the vendors database. For example, when a travel agency requests a reservation on the service of a particular airline, the GDS system routes the request to the appropriate airline computer reservations system. This enables a travel agent with a connection to a single GDS to choose and book various flights, hotels, activities and associated services on all the vendors in the world who are part of that GDS.
  • Faster site = more revenueThis proven technology reduces the number of data round-trips necessary to complete an internet-based trade request, thus accelerating performance &amp; virtually eliminating a bad user experience due to latency.
  • The Transhotel group serves 78,800 travel agency customers worldwide, providing a portfolio of over 60,000 hotels and tourist services in 147 countries via multiple online websites, with international revenues growing steadily year on year.
  • Total traffic: data transferredData transferred has been reduced by 97% on origin leading to savings on Bally’s local ISP and increasing reliability and website uptime. Content acceleration has enabled Bally to quickly scale up the site’s capacity during busy periods such as Chinese New Year, and to prevent transactional delays caused by unreliable, transient network conditions, which could have a serious impact on the company’s e-sales.

Online Challenges - Speed Matters “…Instead of wasting time on keyword meta tags, you can focus on some very easy, straightforward, small steps that can really improve how users perceive your site” - Matt Cutts, Google S/W Engineer on Google’s Webmaster Central Blog Published a study that showed when a slight delay was added to web searches – as little as 1/10th of a second – searchers used Google up to 0.6% less Also found increasing load time of the page from 400ms to 900ms – led to 25% reduction in traffic Found that a reduction in page load of 400ms caused a 5-9% drop in traffic Found that speeding up their website by 5 seconds increased their conversion rates by 7-12% and doubled # of visitors from search engine traffic Found that a 1 second delay in load time led to 2.8% drop in revenue - A 2 second delay saw revenue fall by 4.3% Found a 100ms of delay reduced revenue by 1%
    12. 12. Latency- Speed Matters “…faster sites don’t just improve user experience, recent data shows that improving site speed also reduces operating costs. Like us, our users place a lot of value in speed — that’s why we’ve decided to take site speed into account in our search rankings” - Matt Cutts, Google S/W Engineer on Google’s Webmaster Central Blog
