When developing or managing a website, it’s important to know how your website is performing on both desktop and mobile devices. Your site’s performance can determine your search engine ranking and can provide insights on user experience. To get a baseline on how your site is performing, Google provides a basic and easy-to-use tool that tests your website for free.

Google’s PageSpeed Insights allows you to test your website’s performance on both desktop and mobile, then provides a brief analysis of your results. Although PageSpeed Insights does not provide a metric on how fast your site is rendering, it does provide a PageSpeed Score that indicates how well your site is performing based on Google’s 15 rules on speed and usability.

In our PageSpeed Insights eBook, you will learn about Google’s speed rules, why they matter and how to implement them into your site to improve web performance. This eBook will cover the following 10 Speed Rules:
