Our site, TakeYourBusinessPlaces.com, speed scores rock.
Page speed score is 96% (A).
Yslow score is 90% (A.)
Pingdom performance grade is 98/100.
High Speed score = better user experience, better SEO.
How’d we pull that off? – Not by compromising the site by limiting graphics or page count. (Our page count in this site is 66+ pages and loaded with full screen size images in our portfolio section.)
We earned these scores with excellent quality oversight and testing processes, high-end web development skills, attention to detail… and fantastic new and improved website test tools now available on the internet – like Yslow.org and GTmetrix – two well known, highly credible website testing resources that continue to improve with time.
If your site contains third-party plugins or is on a slow server that your host maintains, it’s not always possible to get a B or A grade. But website software test tools like this come in handy for developers to quickly spot relatively easy fixes for problem areas that have high impact on site speed.
We recommend that you target a B or better when optimizing your website for speed and SEO.
