Out of these three, checking the speed of your blog/website is very important in order to make your blog a success. You have loads of quality content but a visitor has to wait long to get the site fully loaded. This reduces the interest of the visitor and gradually will reduce interest to all the visitors heading towards your blog. Moreover, your bounce rate would also decrease if you have a fast-loading blog provided that there is quality content. Thanks to Pingdom, with its tests, it is easy to find out how long your blog would load. The page test loads the complete HTML page with all the objects in the site such as images, CSS,flash, rss and iframes. It then gives you the total time required to load your blog. and also the summary of all the files that are loaded while entering your blog.
DNS health tests the DNS servers for the domain name to check if its servers are configured correctly. This test is not required for those who are running on free blogging platforms.
