How to check the speed of your mobile site

by Marsh Maxwell Web Digital Group

Having a responsive site has become one of the basic requirements for being found online.

The Digital data of 2020 are clear: on a global level we are talking about 4.18 billion users who access the internet via mobile devices or 92% of the total internet users.

According to the report dedicated to USA , more than 45 million users access online content via mobile devices equivalent to 92% of the total population .

If the mobile version of your site is slow, inevitably your business is limited and will be affected.

How many times have we searched the website of a shop or company while on the go and, impatiently, we closed the browser tab because the site took too long to load the pages and no texts or images appeared?

Let's see how to check the speed of your site in a few steps with one of the free tools provided by Google : Test my Site

Speed ​​test with Test my Site

If you are not a web master and the html pages scare you, there are some free tools to do a quick speed test and understand what improvements to pass to the UX team and make immediately on your site for mobile devices. One of these tools is Google's Test my Site accessible from the Think with Google page , a blog that is constantly updated and whose subscription to the newsletter I highly recommend: minimally invasive, clearly exposed and very useful topics.

How Test my Site works

Using it is very simple. Just go to the Test my Site page and insert the link of the site where we want to check the speed.

Once the domain has been entered, just wait a few seconds (depending on the quantity of pages to be analyzed) to obtain a visual report with the following details:

Overview at a glance where a site speed / slowness rating is given

Benchmark where you can compare your site with those of your competitors

Evaluate to see how much speed can affect your revenues and then find out the impact that a faster mobile site can have on your business

Optimization where some suggestions to improve the site loading speed appear in a few slides. Here you can also insert individual pages of the site to receive targeted advice on some sections / contents.

Finally, it is possible to obtain a personalized report which is sent by email in pdf format and which summarizes all the data generated by the tool

Other speed test tools

To check the speed of your site not only for mobile devices, there are other free sites with which you can check it:
