We will suggest you the best way you can find the actual reasons for your website being slow.

Just use the Google Page Speed Testing Tool.

This tool will actually rate your website out of 100% for your website’s speed.

A good rating on this tool is anything above 85% for all the pages of your website. Since, these days home pages usually are more lengthy and have more content than other pages so anything above 75% will be acceptable for your website’s homepage while 85% percent will be good for rest of the pages.

Also, rating for your advertisement landing pages should be similarly above 85%. So, if your advertisement landing page is also your homepage make sure you have above 85% rating to get good quality score on Google Adwords.

This tool also rates your website for mobile and desktop separately. It is normal to get 10% less rating on mobile if you are using too many large responsive images on your website pages.

This tool also suggests you what you can do to increase the speed of your website

These suggestions are majorly some of the following and I am attempting to list according to what should be their importance:-

  • Avoid landing page redirects
  • Reduce server response time
  • Optimize images
  • Leverage browser caching
  • Minify HTML
  • Minify JavaScript
  • Minify CSS
  • Enable compression
  • Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
  • Prioritize visible content
