WOW Impressed with Google
Somebody mentioned that the G at the end of Page Speed Insights meant the article had been indexed. So I had to go and look. (I am supposed to be doing orders, clearly not happening)
Off I went, hovered over the G and nothing about being indexed BUT up popped the words "View in Google PageSpeed Insights" So, has to be done, I clicked.,
Jumped to a page and told me a lot of numbers for that blog post. Was NOT good reading. I thought I was doing pretty well on that front but apparently not. No green, all orange and red.
Tried a few more, the same!!!
So clicking about and reading, I discover Google advises either the Lazy Load plug in or AMP plug in, to load quicker stuff first and the slower stuff next. Makes sense.
Though to be fair I could have got that wrong, I tend to speed read, Plus I can be impulsive and jump in too fast.
So without anymore to do.... I leapt.... as you do. If it feels right go for it, is my mantra. Doesn't always work out but more often than not.
I tend to be the one that shocks the salesman by trying something and immediately saying YES, I will have that. Then hold up a hand saying, I don't want to hear all the bumpf, no credit stuff, I just want to buy it now. Last things I did that with were a new 3 piece suite and a few months old car. This was included to show it doesn't just happen here, lol.
Anyway.... I had a fast read about the plug in, downloaded it, waited a couple of minutes (may have been less) went back to check the page speeds after clearing the cache. Some were better, some slightly worse but overall an improvement
But the best bit was this:
2 separate posts checked in the Google PageSpeed Insights. Woo Hooo!!!! Yay!!! Turning metaphorical cartwheels.
The one on the left isn't as good but it is green!
How cool is that? That plug in is going on all my sites immediately.
After which I WILL be working hard on orders. Siiiigh.
It's Sooo exciting. What do YOU think?
I wanted to share this news so everyone can benefit from my findings.
