Earlier I wrote that Google helps SEO via Speed, and several of you wrote to me asking if there were other tools around to help improve your SEO for speed.
Well, I’m happy to tell you all that, yes, there are several other ways to test your page speed.
As you may have guessed, Google’s web-based
Page Speed Online PageSpeed Insights is not the only tool available. Here’s some other speed tools you may want to play with:
- Pingdom Website Speed Test
- UpTrends Speed Test
- DotCom Speed Test
- KeyCDN Speed Test
- Varvy Page speed Optimization
- Yellow Lab Tools
- Sucuri LoadTimeTester
- Show Slow on GitHub
- Rigor’s Free Speed Performance Report
- Google Page Speed extension for Firefox
Good luck with your testing and hope ya pass! 😉 Seriously, though, people have a shorter attention span these days and it’s getting shorter by the second. They will click back and go to the next result in the search engine result pages if you aren’t quick enough.
So do yourself a favor, run the tests and work on the optimizations.
