Today Google announced the immediate availability of a new Speed report in Search Console.
Originally previewed at Google I/O 2019, the new Speed report has been modified and improved based on feedback from beta testers. The report is designed to help webmasters and site owners identify and improve user experience issues, especially those related to how fast a site loads.
The report classifies URLs by speed and the issue that causes any slowdowns. Drill down on a specific issue to see examples of slow URLs to help you prioritize performance improvements for them. To get a better sense of what type of optimization can be performed for a specific URL, the report links to the Page Speed Insight tool, which provides information on specific optimization opportunities.
“You should use this report both for monitoring your performance over time and for tracking fixes you made to your website. If you fix an issue, use the report to track whether users experienced a performance improvement when browsing the fixed version of your website.
“To help you understand how your site is performing, you can also see what types of URLs are doing better by checking the moderate and fast buckets.”
The new report should be a welcome tool to help webmasters keep their sites responsive and competitive.
