Hi Markssxx,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the community!

 

So, you can use PageSpeed Insights to check the speed of your website on desktop and mobile devices. 

 

It is a tool by Google, which is developed to help websites optimize their performance on the search engine. PageSpeed Insights creates reports on the user experience on both desktop and mobile devices and also provides suggestions on how to improve the identified issues on the website that might be hampering its loading speed. 

 

There are a number of metrics, like First Contentful Page (FCP), Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS), Largest Contentful Page (LCP), and Interaction to Next Page (INP), which can be measured using PageSpeed Insights. These metrics are measured under three categories, namely Good, Needs Improvement, and Poor, which helps the website owners identify how well their website is performing.

 

Using this tool, you can not only check the performance of your website on the search engines but also check its accessibility, best practices, and SEO practices. These checks shall assist you to identify the opportunities to improve your website and optimize its speed.

 

Hope it helps!
