Improve user experience by checking your site performance report for free


All web developers should do all they can to ensure their site loads quickly especially since Google uses site speed as a factor in determining your rank.

GTMetrix is a free online service (Pro service also available) that lets you analyse a page on your site (usually the home page) to see what improvements you can make to increase the load speed and therefore help retain visitors to your site.

It’s quite a comprehensive report (with integrated YSlow data) and gives you lots of tips for each recommendation as to what best practices you can follow such as: minifying javascript, removing specfic unused css and enabling compression.

 What I really like is that you can create an account and view your reports overtime to see how your attempts are going.
