Website Health Check
because performance matters
The Website Health Check test is specifically for those that already have a website and would like to know how it is performing using 4 sets of key metrics. This Website Health Check test is an overview, it’s certainly not and in-depth test by any stretch. For a comprehensive technical breakdown, GTmetrix is the tool of choice.
4 Key Metrics
This Website Health Check looks at four key metrics to see where a given web page might need attention.
1. Website Performance
When looking at website performance, we look at 6 Key Components. The following components are considered the bare minimum that needs to be achieved in order to get Google (and other Search Engines) to notice your page.
The heavier the site page, the slower the load. For optimal performance, try to keep page size below 3MB.
The more HTTP requests your website makes, the slower it becomes. Combine files to minimize the number of requests made.
World class webpages should load within 4 seconds. Any slower and visitors will abandon your site, reducing conversions and sales.
2. Mobile Friendly
Traffic from mobile devices is growing fast. Optimize your website for mobile or you’ll miss out on valuable traffic, leads, and revenue.
Responsive design gives you a bump in search rankings for searches on mobile devices.
The view port lets you control your page width and scale on different device types.
3. Website Security
SSL certificates protect websites from attacks and give visitors confidence that your site is authentic and trustworthy.
