As you might have noticed I have added some affiliate links on the top of my blog.
As you can see the number of hits and the bandwidth has been lowered to about one third of the previous load.
It was very easy to install the MaxCDN services, you signed in on your MaxCDN account and created a CDN zone for your website. In wordpress you install the plugin "W3 Total Cache" which enabled you to connect your wordpress site to use your CDN zone for static content. The plugin takes care of pointing all the static content urls to the CDN.
I'm very happy with the effects the MaxCDN service has impacted my server load and for the speed improvements it provides.
MaxCDN also provides tools for testing the speed of your website at http://tools.maxcdn.com/. You can use it to compare the ping latency for your site from different countries, when I ran it to compare my blog with and without MaxCDN I got that MaxCDN made reduced my latency by 93%
You can also use the HTTP test tool to compare the load time between two websites.
