Benefits of Page Speed Data
S (Seconds) response time it took to full load a page or resource.
Raptor’s web crawler collects this data for every accessible resource on a site.
Within the column for ‘Page Load Time (S)’, there two values that can be returned for this which are as follows:
A number to 2 decimal places reflecting the number of seconds it took to load the page or resource
If the URL is inaccessible
This speed assessment is made from servers based in the same country / region as the website is being hosted & targeted in. If your site is in the USA, our page load times are based on servers in the USA. The same is true no matter what country a site is in.
There are many things that can affect page load times outside of the technology loading, downloading, running and rendering the data. High usage, natural fluctuations in server and network speeds can all have an impact. Regular scheduled checks are the best way to gather reliable data points to precisely assess page load times.
Raptor’s page speed analysis tools are internally consistent so, even with a single crawl you can get a close picture of page speeds, but more importantly which ones are slow or fast.
The examples below show how Page Load Time data can be used for SEO.
By using filters, you can very easily see which pages are the slowest and which / if any resources qualify as too slow. You can then put these specific resources or URLs into Google Page Speed Insights and get recommendations on how to improve load times.
You can use this to compare pages of the site, to identify those that are far below or far above the average.
Comparing your site’s page speed data to that of your competitors is a valuable way to see where the competitive benchmarks are. This can inform a range of important decisions on where to deliver resources.
