google page speed pollA few months ago, Google launched a CDN like page speed service and we asked, would you give Google pagespeed a try?

47% of you said you would, whereas 30% said you wouldn't and the rest were not sure.

There are many reasons why a webmaster and SEO would reply that they would or wouldn't use the service. Some would love a method to speed up their pages and not have to worry about the technical - how tos. Some don't trust Google to host their content and pages. Some think they can do it better than Google.

That being said, I am so curious if the 47% who said they would try it, if they actually tried it.

Take my new poll asking "Did you try Google Page Speed Service"?

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.

You'd have to be crazy to give Google the authority to rewrite your pages, even if you do have the ability to approve them. I guess you have to weigh the odds, if your site has serious performance issues and absolutely love everything Google, then this may be a way out. You can easily blame them if anything goes wrong after all. I personally like to control every aspect of my sites and so far, I see no valid reason for why I would use Google's CDN vs other hosts that give you full control. I will however run it on small sites to see if there are any algorithmic benefits, even thought they say there aren't any. Trust no one... especially Google.

Makes me wonder about the Akamai acquisition rumors.
