How to measure Page performance?
So, how do you measure and check your page performance? While there are many websites and similar tools offering performance test for your page, you can use the web-based tool developed by Google at https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ . The interface is very straight forward. You just need to enter your page url and hit on the Analyze button. Google PageSpeed Insights will then analyze your page and provides optimization suggestions and tips on how to improve your page speed. It will also compute a score from 0-100 for both mobile and desktop after analyzing your page. If your page score is low, you might need to pay attention to the optimization tips as suggested.
There are many factors that affecting the loading speed of each page on your site.
In the following post, we’ll be covering 5 common practices you can do to improve your page speed.
1. Image Optimization
There are many image formats available and be sure that you’ve used the right one for your page. Commonly used image formats for web are GIF, PNG and JPEG. Also, remember to compress your images. Uncompressed images will have larger file size which will cause your page to load slower. You can use web compression services like https://tinypng.com/ to compress your images.
