Anyone who’s read my web site page loading speed optimisation article, knows I am obsessed with page load speed and web server performance in general and that GTmetrix is one of my favourite pagespeed/yslow testing tools. So when I came across GTmetrix’s Wordress plugin, it was a match made in heaven. I installed the GTmetrix for WordPress plugin on this test blog and scheduled it for weekly page speed tests and for it to alert me to when page load speed goes beyond 4 seconds from Dallas test server region.
Below are the test results. First test was incorrectly tested against http vs https url and since then added some social icon buttons to the widget area.
