Google Analytics Adds New ‘Speed Suggestions’ Report
Google announced the launch of a new Speed Suggestions report in Google Analytics. This can be found under Site Speed along with Overview, Page Timings and User Timings.
The report shows the average page load time for top visited pages on your site, and utilizes the PageSpeed Insights tool to surface suggestions for improving specific pages for speed.
“The PageSpeed Insights tool analyzes the contents of a web page and generates a speed score and concrete suggestions,” says Chen Xiao from Google’s Analytics team. “The speed score indicates the amount of potential improvement on the page. The closer the score is to 100, the more optimized the page is for speed.”
Google says it has seen from its own benchmarks that the web is getting faster in general, with mobile even being 30% faster year over year.
