Hi now we have learn about all SEO, and Social media content every week(read our blog here). I really like to talk about new technologies and the technology used by few. Here we talk about google tool “Test My Site” to test website speed.
Test My Site:
Test My Site is an easy way for businesses to measure their site’s performance across devices, from mobile to desktop, providing them with a list of specific fixes that can help their business connect more quickly with people online. Businesses just need to type in their web address and within moments they’ll see how their site scores. They can also get a detailed report with tips on what to do next, and where to go for help at no charge.
What you get through this ANALYTICS?
It was divide into three containers like:
1) Overview – Where you can get details of the website speed and its ranking.
2) Optimize – Here you can understand how we can fix the site & we can generate a detailed report of the test result.
3) Other tools like: a) Benchmark site: It helps us to know about our opponent website speed. b)Impact of faster site: here we can evaluate the impact given by faster site on visitors and revenue .
What is the definition of Fast, Average, or Slow site and page speeds?
Thresholds for each category are applied consistently across site and page speed as well as across country and connection type. These are the same thresholds shown in PageSpeed Insights (PSI). The thresholds for each category are as follows.
Fast: 0-1 second
Average: 1 second-2.5 seconds
Slow: 2.5 seconds and up
How can We speed up the site?
After testing the website we get the ranking of our site. If our site was slow we cannot get more visitors and they are not going to convert as customers. In that data we will know what need to be update. It show as suggestion what need to be update for better speed like minify css, compress images, and all other recomendation to speed up our website.
Why isn’t my site speed available?
Site speed measures the speed of all of the pages on your site based on world data collected via the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX). Site speed is only available for top performing sites. If your site speed isn’t available, then your site isn’t included in this data set, and it’s important to focus on improving your page speed to eventually enhance the overall performance of your site.
You can use the steps within the Test My Site tool to begin improving your page speed, see the speeds of other sites in your industry, evaluate the impact a faster site can have on revenue, and receive a detailed report to continue improving your page speed, and, ultimately, your site speed.
