Well, I’m happy to tell you all that, yes, there are several other ways to test your page speed.
Page Speed Testing Tools
Finding out how your pages – yes, you have to test a “page” – are scoring in terms of speed will help you identify particular areas that need improvement.
As you may have guessed, Google’s web-based
Page Speed Online PageSpeed Insights is not the only tool available. Here are some other tools you may want to play with.
- Pingdom Website Speed Test
- UpTrends Speed Test
- DotCom Speed Test
- KeyCDN Speed Test
- Internet Marketing Ninjas Page speed Optimization
- Yellow Lab Tools

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 speed optimizations.
