And Google’s released a new tool to help you with it: Google Page Speed Insights, wherein you give it a URL, and it will analyze the speed factors of the page, giving you a “Page Speed Score” out of 100.
Not to mention that you can also generate a Page Speed Mobile analysis, for mobile browser optimization!
The results are broken down into four categories:
- High Priority
- Medium Priority
- Low Priority
- Rules without Suggestions
The great thing is that’s not where it stops. They actually give the details of where you can improve and HOW you can do it.
Go test a site and improve it – you’ll notice the difference.
