• Great SEO article

    I ran across a great SEO article via Twitter, the link is here


    There was a comment I wanted to add a few ideas, I tried to format the comment, however it didn’t format to cleanly so I thought I’d add here.    Review the comments in the article too, there are some additional items mentioned worth checking out.  I hope he picks up this post and adds the couple links for reference.

    Couple other things to reference to this great article. Here are three commands I run on all servers. I use the compression level 9 on a very high volume with no impact, Here is another article on other properties and http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/206/dynamic-compression/

    Scott Forsyth wrote an article on compress level and performance which is a good read. http://weblogs.asp.net/owscott/archive/2009/02/22/iis-7-compression-good-bad-how-much.aspx


    c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config /section:urlCompression /doDynamicCompression:true

    Sets the compression level
    c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config /section:system.webServer/httpCompression -[name=”‘gzip'”].dynamicCompressionLevel:9″Mkdir D:\Data\IISTemporaryCompressedFiles”

    Sets the directory path
    c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config /section:httpCompression /directory:D:\Data\IISTemporaryCompressedFiles /maxDiskSpaceUsage:100 /minFileSizeForComp:256″

    Hope this helps

One Responseso far.

  1. Is it possible to turn on compression just by using web.config?

    I’m on shared hosting on IIS7.5 and don’t have server access :-(
