Site Speed & Performance Optimization

It’s all about efficiency and optimization. Your site may be loading fast, but it could be faster if you take some of the best practices into consideration. You even might be able to reduce bandwidth and hosting costs by minimizing your footprint.

GTmetrix has a suite of features and options to make optimizing your website speed clear and easy.


Track History with Graphs

Keep track of the performance for your page and visualize your history with 3 interactive graphs. Zoom, pan, set a date range and more! Notes give you the ability to mark spikes in performance and give your data context.


Analyze on an actual Android device

See your page performance on an actual Android device!  GTmetrix passes your URL through an actual Android device to get real world performance data on your page load.  Optimize your site for mobile users and ensure a fast page load time on their devices!


Test from Multiple Regions

Analyze the page load of your site from different regions around the world:

  •  Vancouver, Canada
  •  Dallas, USA
  •  London, UK
  •  Sydney, Australia
  •  São Paulo, Brazil
  •  Mumbai, India
  •  Hong Kong, China

GTmetrix PRO users can monitor from remote locations.


Playback Page Loads with Videos

You can record your page loads and pin point exactly where bottlenecks or stoppages occur! Slow your playback up to 4 times the original speed to determine loading issues, and jump to major page load milestones such as DNS Resolved, First Byte and DOM Loaded. Only with Chrome, Safari or IE9+ When used with our monitored alerts feature, GTmetrix will save a video of the page load that triggered the alert for viewing (only available to GTmetrix PRO users.) You can also view your page load in a filmstrip view. This allows you to get a frame-by-frame look at your page loading in real time.


Set up Monitored Alerts

GTmetrix can alert you if your page falls below a certain condition you set! Set numerous conditions based on page Speed/YSlow score, Page load time, Total Page size, etc, and get an e-mail notification whenever any are triggered. Perfect for proactive monitoring and ensuring your site is as fast as it can be at all times.
