Forget manual Google Page Speed Insights checks or GTMetrix, because this is now done automatically and daily. We send emails if there’s a change in scores or any errors happening. Take action when needed, not just for the sake of checking.
Our SEO Monitor performs Lighthouse checks which essentially is equivalent to Google Page Speed Insights. We run daily checks for your defined pages, check for errors and downtimes, and alert you when your attention is required!
The website is tested on 5 different points:
You immediately see the different parts and how you scored for each part on a scale from 0 to 100.
The performance audit includes a number of points that are checked. One, for example, is the First Meaningful Paint (FMP) audit, which measures when the visual content of your page is displayed. What exactly is measured here is the time between starting the page load and rendering the visual images. According to Google websites data, very good scoring websites render the FMP in about 1,220 ms. This time therefore corresponds to a score of 99.
A Progressive Web App (or PWA) is a normal website that has the functionalities of an app, which is also available offline. This means that your website can be used as a kind of simplified app (e.g. the Starbucks website lets you order items similarly to their native app). This is an important development nowadays since almost everything happens via mobile devices. So this score measures how well your website works as a simplified mobile app.
With the Accessibility Score, the different points weigh in different ways (just like with the Performance Score). What is different here, however, is that you only get the points if you have fully satisfied the condition. In the Performance Score, you can get a partial points if you have partially earned it. Here, this is not the case. It is all or nothing. With accessibility, there are very clear conditions that you have to meet, such as: images have an alt-text, the page has an understandable language, elements are clearly structured, etc.
With the Best Practices Score, various things are tested, such as the use of HTTPS, if users can paste text in the 'password' field, and different technical issues.
These are things that are often used on other websites and that work well. This is the standard for websites nowadays. This score shows you how your website fits into this standard.
The SEO score indicates how search engine-friendly your website is and how easily your pages rank within Google (and other search engines).
Is your website mobile-friendly? Is the font size normal? Is a distinction made between the H1 and H2 headlines?
This is mainly about how the page looks, is technically set up, and whether you can score well and can get a high ranking on Google.
