Google PageSpeed Insights
If the optimisation and loading speed of a website is one of the main points where the big G sets its sights, how could it not have a tool to measure it? Lucky for us, it does.
The Google speed test does not show you the loading time of a webpage in seconds though. It shows different scores between 0 and 100. You can even see the score of your website on both mobile and desktop variants. For SEO services
like us, this is very useful to utilise. Although this web speed test does not measure the speed of your website in time, the scores do have to be taken into account. It also gives you different tips to improve speed and optimise WordPress.
Pingdom is a Website speed test which is very easy to use. Just enter the url and indicate where you want the test to take place. If your website takes less than 2 seconds to load, congratulations; you have a good loading speed. It not only shows you the loading time. You can also see the degree of optimisation, the size of your website or what percentage of sites are slower than yours.
If, like our SEO UK team, want to explore a little further, you will see a complete analysis of loading speed of the webpage and any errors that have occurred.
Affordable SEO groups find this tool very useful to compare the web loading speed between several sites.
GTmetrix does practically the same as Pingdom; an analysis of the speed of your website with cascade load scores and times.
The advantage of this application is that you can see and analyse the loading speed of several web pages at the same time (keep in mind this fact, because it is very useful to compare your website with those of the competition).
