Google PageSpeed Insights is a useful online tool for any webmaster interested in improving their web site’s page load speed.
What is PageSpeed Insights?
PageSpeed Insights analyzes the content of a web page, then generates suggestions to make that page faster. Reducing page load times can reduce bounce rates and increase conversion rates.
mod_pagespeed & ngx_pagespeed
Google PageSpeed Inights provides alot of suggestions to improve your web site’s page load speed. While we all should generally take on all these suggestions when building our web sites, not everyone has the time or knowledge to implement them all. So Google released two awesome products to fully automate all the Google PageSpeed recommended best practices – mod_pagespeed for Apache web servers and ngx_pagespeed for Nginx web servers.
Google PageSpeed Insights Result
As this blog’s purpose is to test Centmin Mod Nginx auto installer for CentOS (with Google Nginx ngx_pagespeed module enabled), I decided to see how this blog fairs with Google PageSpeed Insights’ online test. The end result was a PageSpeed score of 99 out of 100. An almost perfect score!
