Introducing Google PageSpeed Insights Plesk Extension

Page performance is important for search engine rankings

Website performance is one of the things search engines look at to decide how to rank your page. Especially with the increasing number of visitors constrained by low throughput and high latency browsing on mobile devices, every second it takes to load a page matters.

What is Google PageSpeed Insights?

With PageSpeed Insights by Google you can perform checks to identify measurements to make your websites faster and more mobile-friendly within seconds. And this is also key to get a pole position in Google Search. The tool analyzes the delivered content of your website and makes suggestions to improve it.

You can use PageSpeed Insights for free from the project page. Enter your domain into the text field and click on the “ANALYZE” button. The service will review the entered URL and make some pre-defined performance rule checks to create an overall rating. The best score of 100 requires an optimized website that passes all performance rules successfully!
