The Page Speed Test tool provides a comprehensive analysis of the page load time. It allows you to find out the time it takes to load at different connection speeds. The tool also useful if you need to see which components of your webpage take the shortest and longest amounts of time to load.

After the website speed test tool analyzes the page, it will generate the load time results and supplemental data. Users can run a single page through this tool or comparison of two pages.

In April of 2010, Google announced that it would be including page load speed as a ranking factor, this inclusion made it increasingly important for webmasters to test website speed. As a result, all other things being equal, a website optimized for speed may outrank a competing site within the search engine ranking (SERPs).
Scanning your webpages with the page speed test tool is a smart way to pinpoint issues that may negatively impact the website. After identifying problem areas, there are a few things that can be done to increase the loading speed of the site.
We suggest that whenever new pages are added to a site, webmasters make it a point to test load speed to ensure that your new page doesn’t include any component that could slow down your site.
Suggestions for Optimizing Page Load Time
- Look for opportunities to reduce the number of HTTP requests
- Enable HTTP compression
- Avoid allowing internal links to redirect – instead, fix them to link directly as needed
After analyzing the results of your website speed test, steps can be taken to:
- Remove as much of that code content out of your individual HTML pages
Avoid Redirects with Internal Links
Occasionally, page redirects cannot be avoided; such as when an external site links to a non-canonical URL for your homepage; however, there is no reason to allow internal website links to redirect.
After identifying redirecting internal links, it is important that those issues be addressed. If you have to set up a 301 redirect on your site to capture external links, ensure that all internal site links use the new URL in order to improve page load time. Also, be sure that all internal links to the homepage consistently use the canonical URL.
