Check the load time

Medium Influence Hard to implement

The page load time plays an important role in its position in the Google SERPs.

Use the Load Time Checker to check the website’s average load time based on the file size of the used documents and images. The results will show you the different load times for various connection speeds.

Long load times can be caused by:

  • Overloaded pages (images, videos, etc).
  • Slow server speed.
  • Broken scripts.
  • Slow third-party content (e.g. ads).
  • Not optimized CSS files.
