Testing sites and utilities

We often need tools to fine tune a website to make sure its performing at its best, below are a few mostly free tools I use on a regular basis to help in that goal.

GT Mertrix (Speed test)

GTmetrix is a simple tool that will give you different performance metrics related to website speed, which you can analyze and use to optimize your site’s performance.

It has different options to test your site’s speed in different browsers, varied network speeds, and in multiple locations. Gtmetrix is powered by Lighthouse, Google’s automated tool that helps in improving site performance.

Page Explorer (on-site SEO)

We all work hard to build great websites and designs, however we often forget small elements that can help your page rank well within search engines. A quick and FREE easy to use tool that analyzes a page at a time.

This page explorer breaks down the complexities of the html and content of your web page It will report on images, alt tags, nofollow links and give you recommendation on how to improve your score.

Cloudinary (Image compression)

Optimizing images can significantly improve Web page load time, resulting in improved user retention and satisfaction. This tool provides measurable and actionable information about how to go beyond simple compression: discover how changes to image size, format selection, quality and encoding can dramatically improve page load speed.
