Get Detailed WordPress Site Speed Advice With Our Custom Built Tool

It’s 100% FREE & Takes Just 90 Seconds, No Opt-In Required

How To Run a Speed Test:

Using the form below, enter your URL and test location and then hit the button.

The tool will then test your site in around 90 seconds and
provide a detailed list of recommendations. Note that the larger your page or the slower it loads the longer the test will take.

It’s usually best to do a few tests to get an average speed as a single test may not be a true reflection of overall site speed.

The tool retains tests for 12 months – there’s a link on the test page to the speed test history for a domain.

We regularly update the tool with new recommendations and advice based on what we’ve learnt through our WordPress Site Speed Optimization Services.

The Metrics You Should Aim For:

To give the test some context, ideally we want our speed timings looking something like this:

  • TTFB or Time To First Byte 0.1-0.3 seconds (this is where is should be in the country where the site is hosted, 0.2-0.6 internationally)
  • FCP or First Contentful Paint at or under 1.8 seconds
  • LCP or Largest Contentful Paint under 2.5 seconds 
  • Page Size or Page Weight under 1.5mb, ideally but not always possible

Hitting these numbers will get you in the “good” range for Google’s Core Web Vitals scores and have the site loading lightning fast.
