When a web site, or individual pages on a website, take a long time to load, the negative impacts of a bad user experience can lead to high bounce rates, shopping cart abandonment, fewer visitors, lower SERPs, and a loss of sales and advertising revenue. Most website owners won’t know how much they are losing in sales if they haven’t optimized their webpage load times.
Website owners and administrators now have a new tool to help them determine where bottlenecks are occurring on slow websites that have undesirable page load times. The Website Speed Test and Optimization Tool just launched on TheWebHostingHero.com features optimization tips after providing detailed diagnostic information with data and test results that include Waterfall, Benchmark Test, Statistics, Performance Grade, PageSpeed, and Traceroute.
Use of the Website Speed Test and Optimization Tool is free to use and does not require the user to install anything on their computer. Included in the results are concise tips on how to improve the performance of the website that was tested.
