Pingdom’s Website Speed Tests

Posted (4 years ago).

You’ve heard us talk about it before.  Website loading speed matters and affects your bottom line.  Great, but were should you turn to test and receive recommendations to increase your website’s loading speed.  One word, Pingdom. 

Pingdom offers free website speed tests with a wonderfully in-depth and actionable report telling you how you’re doing.

As they say on their site:

We built this Full Page Test tool to help you analyze the load speed of your websites and learn how to make them faster. It lets you identify what about a web page is fast, slow, too big, what best practices you’re not following, and so on. We have tried to make it useful both to experts and novices alike.  In short, we wanted it to be a easy-to-use tool to help webmasters and web developers everywhere optimize the performance of their websites.

So head over to Pingdom and test your speed.  If you see a lot of latency (waiting) or slow response times, you might want to consider how your website hosting provider might be to blame.
