Is your page speed dragging? Find out with optimization tips.
Free page speed testing from Uptrends gives you insight into your page’s desktop and mobile user experience. The tool gives you all the details you need to get your page speed to the next level using the actionable page performance tips from Google’s PageSpeed Insights. You get the page speed metrics you want, including page-load progressions, connection details, and page element distributions.
First, Uptrends opens a fresh browser: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or PhantomJS. While your page loads in the browser, the page speed tool tracks the connection times, response times, download/render times. Using the mobile simulation, you can get detailed page performance information based on different device types and connection types.
The page speed test gives you details for every element
Whether you’re testing your website’s page speed for desktop or mobile, you’ll know the number of page elements and their size. You also get the distribution based on type and size. For example, you’ll learn how many script files your page has; plus, you will know your page scripts' total size and the average size.
Diving into the waterfall report, you get the URL, the load order details, each element’s request and response header, and the element’s connection details. You’ll see any sluggish elements, failed elements, and page bottlenecks. The visual representation of your page speed guides your efforts to improve your webpage’s speed.
Compare web page speed using Chrome, Firefox, and IE
Chrome is the most popular browser with over 60% of the market share, but competing browsers still have millions of users. For example, Firefox and IE still have about a 16% share of the desktop market representing millions of people, so it is important to know your page speed in those browsers too. A great user experience is important for all your users.
We keep our checkpoints outfitted with the latest browser versions. Using the latest browser version means your page speed test is always using the same browser and version that most of your page visitors use. A lot of other page-speed-test sites use an older browser.
Page speed tests from worldwide locations
With the free web page speed test, you can test your website from 10 different worldwide locations (Start a trial, and you can test from all 226 checkpoints). We locate our checkpoints on the ground in or near the cities where your users live, so you get performance data that mirrors your users' experiences. You can spot latency problems affecting your users and fix them.
Drive more traffic with faster page speed
Google takes mobile page speed into account when ranking pages. If your mobile page speed falls short of Google’s expectations, you’re hurting your page’s SEO. Google does its own mobile page speed test and scores your page. You may have all of your SEO ducks in a row, but unless you take the mobile page speed test, you won’t know for sure.
Optimize with Google PageSpeed Insights
You need a fast page speed to please your users. A fast loading webpage leads to improved conversions, lowers bounce rates, and improves user retention. The page speed test tool suggests optimization and prioritizes them based on the tasks that give you the highest page speed improvements.
Share test results to your team
Let your team share in the joy—or the pain—of your Web Page Speed Test data. Use thebutton to get a sharable link that you can send to your team, or you may want to save the results for later review. Follow the link, and Uptrends retrieves the test results with the waterfall report and all.
Test your mobile page speed
Mobile Internet users outnumber desktop users, so Google uses your mobile speed to rank your page. To test your mobile page speed, choose the screen size and bandwidth, and get your load times. For example, Google simulates a Nexus 7 on a slow 4G network when checking your page.
Check your mobile speed on slow bandwidths
We don’t all have fast connections all the time. Uptrends free page speed mobile test lets you throttle the connection speed for your test. By throttling your test’s connection speed, you get a more accurate representation of your page’s speed on different networks.
Check your request and response headers
Your request and response headers are loaded with information. By inspecting your element headers, you get tons of connection and response data. So, check your headers, especially for your slow or failed page elements.
A single page speed test is great. Automation is better!
Test your webpage speed 24/7
What are you going to do; manually test your page speed all day long? You’ve got better things to do. Uptrends' Web Performance Monitoring can track page speed for you all day and all night. Uptrends checks every page element for you so you can get on with your life.
Page speed from your users' locations
Uptrends' 226 checkpoints make it easy to test your page’s performance from visitor’s locations over the same Internet infrastructure they use every day. You’ll capture latency issues that monitoring services with smaller or cloud networks can’t catch.
Daily page speed reports
Uptrends can send you regularly scheduled reports with the page speed data you need to find problem locations and performance trends. You can get data in table and chart form so you can identify page performance lulls over days, weeks, and months. You’ll capture the short and the long performance spikes.

Slight changes in your page content or the systems that support your site can destroy your efforts to maintain a fast page. With Web Performance Monitoring, you can automate your page checks and find out when something causes your page performance to drop.
Alerts go out when your page gets slow
Advanced alerting from Uptrends sends you messages when your content match fails, the response size is off, the response code is unexpected, or if authentication fails. Get messages through SMS, email, voice, webhooks, or built-in integrations with tools such as PagerDuty and Slack.
