A quick word about website performance testing – what you should accept as gospel (tip: there’s not much) and what should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Using a website to test the page load time of your own website is all well and good, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind:
🚀 Web Hosting: Poor quality or overloaded servers will affect how quickly your website is delivered.
🚀 Data Retrieval: Using websites to analyse your website performance can provide inaccurate information as the processes they use to retrieve and process information about your site can differ.
🚀 Different users will experience different load times, depending on the quality of their internet service, their router and internet usage in general at any given time.
The key is to ensure your site is built to industry standards, don’t use large image files and make sure you optimise the code on your site as much as possible.
