Overall Satisfaction with Google PageSpeed Insights

Google PageSpeed Insights is a great tool which helps both management and development teams, using it as a valuable tool to ensure our deliveries' quality. It provides insights on how to improve user experience, accessibility, and performance.

Also, it's a great way to show our clients how everything is going and better optimize our code for search engines.
  • Straight to the point
  • Valuable feedback on performance
  • Provide optimized assets (CSS, JS and images)
  • Could have better mobile analysis
  • Some performance requirements are somewhat difficult to meet
  • You don't need to get a 100% grade to have a greatly optimized website
  • Since it's a free tool, we can't recommend it enough.
  • It only requires a small amount of time to get used to and be able to make improvements on the website.
  • I think the negative impact may be the "grade" issue because some clients ask to get "100%" and it depends on the tools and web hosting you are using.
I think GTmetrix has some feedback that PageSpeed doesn't provide, but Google's tool is easier overall and has a better user experience; also offers compressed images, CSS, and javascript files if that's the case. Also, Google has extensive documentation to help you better understand what can be done to improve your grade.
We like Google PageSpeed Insights because it's rather simple to use and it fits all sorts of projects on the web, like simple landing pages, e-commerce, blogs and much more. It's great for the quality assurance stage, but it also provides insights and it needs to be considered right from the start.
