Having a website that’s fast to load will help to keep your readers around longer, but how do you test that? We’ll look at three different sites to check your speed – Pingdom, GTmetrix, and Google PageSpeed
Pingdom checks your site speed by visiting it from a random location and noting down how long each element on your page takes to load. This will make it easier for you to work out what needs to be cut down.
GTmetrix looks at a few different things and will tell you where you need to improve. This is really useful because it breaks things down into different areas, with specific information on what to fix.
Google PageSpeed also looks at what you can fix, but it looks at both the mobile and desktop versions to see what can be improved for both versions of your site.
