5 Ways to Check Your Blog/ Website Loading Speed - When we talk about SEO, one of the topics that is often discussed is about the speed of loading blogs. This time, I will give a little information about how to check the loading speed of our blog/website. The goal is that we can evaluate our blog and can make our blog loading faster.
Previously, this aspect of loading speed was not our top priority even though some surveys said that a fast blog/website can increase the visit rate by more than 60%, but still, the most important thing is your content.
Now, let's get into our main topic. Here are some ways to check blog/website loading speed.
1. Google Pagespeed Insights
The first way is to take advantage of the tools developed by Google. The name of the tool is Google Pagespeed Insights. This tool is quite accurate to measure the loading speed of our blog/website.
This tool measures our loading speed on the desktop (computer) and mobile display (smartphone). That way we can know how our blog is performing on two devices that are commonly used to access that information.
This rating from Google Pagespeed Insights is displayed with a number from 0 to 100. However, please don't waste your time chasing a score of 100, especially if you want to play with AdSense.
Just chasing the 90's score is enough. Please note that even my own blog has not passed this Google Pagespeed Insights. This blog still has some homework (read: homework, not pagerank).
If you want to use this tool, please click on the following link:
2. Think with Google
The second way is to make use of a tool called Think with Google from Google. This tool will show the loading performance of your blog / website using a 3G connection and show how the results are.
The score given is the number of seconds it takes for a user with a 3G connection to access your blog/website. The tool also provides time recommendations that are appropriate for each online industry.
The advantage of this tool is that it is very light and fast and easy to use. I'm sure even a layman can understand the results of testing using this tool. If you want to use this tool, please click the following link:
3. Lighthouse Audit
If you are a user of the desktop version of the Google Chrome browser, then there is nothing wrong with taking advantage of the Lighthouse Audit feature from Google. Some of the aspects audited by this tool are quite numerous and detailed.
In my opinion, the assessment of this tool is quite credible and very worthy of being used as a reference for improving the loading performance of our blog. Although, to be honest until now this blog had a lot of homework from this tool.
If you want to use this Lighthouse Audit, all you need to do is the following:
- Open your website or blog.
- Right-click and select the Inspect Element option.
- Select the Audits menu.
- Press the Run Audit menu.
One tool that is widely used and trusted by many bloggers and web developers to check the loading of their blogs is the GTMetrix this.
Ratings for this tool come from PageSpeed and YSlow. You will also be shown the problems that arise from the results of the analysis and offered solutions that you can take to solve the problem of loading your blog/website.
Until now, the credibility and accuracy of this tool is still a discussion, but I personally still recommend you to try it.

Maybe a few bloggers, especially those from Indonesia, who use this tool to check the loading performance of their blog/website, but I think this one tool is quite good to try. We can use a tool with the name Pingdom to analyze the performance of our blog on various servers around the world. In addition, this tool also provides detailed information about things that affect the loading of our blog/website.
