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!

Google PageSpeed Insights Plesk Extension
Measuring website performance once isn’t enough. So we’ve created the Google PageSpeed Plesk Extension so you can quickly and directly run the checks regularly within Plesk – no more leaving the Plesk Interface and opening external pages to generate a detailed report.
The Google PageSpeed Plesk Extension not only gives administrators the rights to run a test, your customers or employees with normal user permission rights can also gain access to this extension. This is a great service feature for your customers if you are using Plesk as your control panel on your servers!
Main features of the Plesk extension
- Check all your domains within seconds
- Detailed report page with many improvement suggestions
- Custom button to start check process and show ratings directly
- Download optimized static files directly after the check
- Store results and displays an overview page
- For both administrators and end customers
If Google PageSpeed Insights can compress static files further, then the extension will show a download link to an archive with optimized files. Download the files and replace them on your web server (don’t forget to backup first) and improve the download performance for your visitors! This feature is also provided by Google.
