Free Mobile Website Speed Test

Test your mobile website speed

The most advanced online mobile website speed test

When you plug in your URL, choose a device type, and a checkpoint location, Uptrends opens a fresh Chrome browser and loads your page. The checkpoint simulates the screen size and connection speed based on your tool settings. Uptrends meters every request and response and tracks the load time as your page loads in the Chrome browser window. You get a detailed close approximation of your users' experiences based on the location, connection speed, and the device you've chosen. Your test results give you the metrics you need to make smart decisions about your site's mobile performance.

Test your mobile website speed

How is your website's mobile speed?

Mobile use surpassed desktop a while ago, but a lot of companies keep their focus on the desktop. Although a fast mobile experience guarantees a fast desktop speed, it also means a whole lot more to your business. Faster mobile speeds mean lower bounce rates, higher conversions, better retention rates, and improved user brand perceptions. Google uses your mobile speed as a ranking factor too. So, if your visitors are bouncing less and staying longer, you get a ranking boost. Plus, if Google clocks you faster than the competition, you get a sweet little bump too. It is win, win, win!

Bandwidth Throttling

How is your mobile speed on 2G? How about 4G? Google PageSpeed Insights uses a slow 4G connection to test your mobile site, so maybe a good connection speed for your testing is using a 3G speed. You have the option to simulate the most common connection speeds.

Choose your device

If you're wondering, Google simulates a Nexus 7 for their testing. Whether you pick the Nexus 7 or another mobile device, Uptrends sets the screen size and uses the corresponding user-agent. Your site won't know the difference and should return content based on the device and screen size.  

Google PageSpeed Insights

If you get a green Google PageSpeed score, you're on the right track. If not, check the performance improvements for tips on improving your speed and your score. Google breaks them down based on their impact, so make any red high impact suggestions priority.

Performance as a ranking factor

Performance is a balancing act. If your page has large files or too many elements: scripts, CSS files, HTML documents, or images, you've shot your budget. Your Free Mobile Speed Test breaks down your page element distribution making it easy to see any out-of-balance elements.

Performance waterfall

For every page element, you get your connection and download times in the order they happen, when they start, and when they end. Identify bottlenecks, problem third-party elements, and latency issues.

Connection details

Your waterfall gives you the order and timing for each element, but the summary gives you the averages for every aspect of your connections, such as resolve time. The summary helps you identify slowdowns due to connections.

How do visitors experience your site on mobile devices?

Every device, connection type, and location have a different experience when it comes to mobile performance. By automating your real-browser web performance testing, you get performance from as many as 220 checkpoint locations. You get advanced reporting and alerts when your performance slips, the page errors, or has missing content.

If you want actual user experiences, take the performance monitoring directly to your users with Real User Monitoring. Get actual user experiences with aggregated reporting, and view your website performance based on user locations, device types, operating systems, and browsers used.

Mobile speed data

Responsive website check

Your responsive design needs to adapt for every screen size and respond with appropriately sized content. Mobile website performance monitoring lets you make sure your site delivers the correct sized content for the device.

Connection speeds

Try out different devices on different connection speeds, 2G, 3G, or 4G. Is your site responding with content appropriate for the type and speed of the connection? 

Requests and Response headers

You have access to the requests and response headers for every page element. You get all of the information you need to make smart content decisions.

Third-party elements

If you're not sure who serves up an element, flip to the domain groups on your waterfall to see elements labeled by type. Then find them on your waterfall to see how well they performed.

Test globally

Choose different checkpoint locations and learn how well your mobile site responds to your users in that location. When you automate your tests, you can choose from as many as 218 checkpoints.

Check the content

When you automate, you can add content checks to make sure your site responds with the correct content. If not, our advanced alerting sounds the alarm!
