The secret tips I provide below will boost your score to the 80% - 90% rand and as a result, your SEO score will improve dramatically.
Is Google PageSpeed Insights Important? If So, Why?
PageSpeed Insights was developed by Google as a way to help increase the load speed of websites. Faster websites provide a better experience for the user. No one likes a slow loading website. The best part is that Google offers rewards for fast loading sites, such as higher rankings on their search engine. PageSpeed Insights considers several factors such as the number of images on the page, the number of scripts, the response time of your server, etc.
There are many other tools online that you could use to see how fast your site loads. I suggest using a few of them and analyse the results. You will get a better overall view of how your website is functioning. The most important thing is that your website loads quickly and that you don’t turn away potential customers.
