Performance evaluation via PageSpeed Insights on Desktop and Mobile Device
Analysis was done for the Home Page of theme demo.
PageSpeed Insights fetches a site with a webkit renderer that emulates both mobile and desktop devices and takes into account characteristics of mobile networks.
The results returned by the PageSpeed Insights API includes the following information: PageSpeed score, summary statistics for the page and PageSpeed results for rules based on general principles of web page performance.
1. PageSpeed score
The PageSpeed Score (0-100) indicates how much faster a page could be. A high score indicates little room for improvement, while a low score indicates more room for improvement. From the point of theme evaluating this characteristic shows how in the theme had taken into account the data processing, minification and optimal loading.
Desktop PageSpeed Score
Mobile PageSpeed Score
2. Page Statistic - Breakdown of page resources size
Number and total size of all requests
|Total size of all requests (considering the compression of HTML, text, CSS and JS resources)||10087 KB||10036 KB|
|Number of requests||160||160|
As we can see from graph and summary table:
- The amount of downloaded data for desktop and mobile devices is virtually identical (the difference is not over 10%).
- The page is too heavy - especially for mobile devices: mobile users may just close the site before the end of its loading.
- The number of requests for desktop and mobile devices is virtually identical.
3. PageSpeed results
PageSpeed analyzes web pages using rules based on main principles of web page performance and generates result for each rule. Following table shows results of the evaluation and recommendations for rules, which performance depends on the quality of the theme source code.
| Avoid landing page redirects|
Theme has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
| Reduce server response time|
In our test, server responded in 1.1 seconds. There are dozens of potential factors which may slow down the response of server: slow application logic, slow database queries, slow routing, frameworks, libraries, resource CPU starvation, or memory starvation.
| Minify CSS|
Compacting CSS code can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
| Minify HTML|
Theme has 43 blocking script resources and 33 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering Theme.
| Optimize images|
Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
| Prioritize visible content|
Theme requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
