We recently started using Google PageSpeed tools for all of the website projects that we deliver.
By developing with these tools, we can ensure that all of the websites which we create are optimized for fast load times. As many people know, Google ranks websites that load faster higher in their search results. That makes page speed an important aspect to any web project. If you would like to learn more about the best way to increase the speed of your website then contact Media Proper or checkout Google’s documentation on PageSpeed here: Google PageSpeed
Here are a few simple steps to follow when performing a PageSpeed analysis of your site:
- Install the Firefox or Chrome Plugin by visiting the download page here.
- Browse to the website that you would like to analyze and fire up the PageSpeed analysis.
PageSpeed will provide you with a laundry list of items that should be addressed in order to give your website the fastest load time possible. I recommend that you follow this list and continue to rerun the analysis until your ranking is 70/100.
If you should need help with making these changes to your site then please contact Media Proper and we will be glad to help.
Page load times not only improve the user experience but also increase your search results ranking. By using the proper tools and following some simple recommendations, you can quickly improve your website performance and ROI.
