Weekly Tests

Each week speed & uptime tests are run using independent tools, GTmetrix & Pingdom. To eliminate the chance of location bias, I change up the test location each week; progressing from USA, UK, India, Canada & Australia.

Test #1: Speed

The Speed Test checks how long it takes for a website to fully load using a desktop internet browser. As website owners, we want our site to load as quickly as possible.

Test #2: Uptime
