Case Study: Google PSI Score Is Not Equal to Page Load Speed

2019-02-19T11:43:54-04:00February 19th, 2019|Case Studies, Performance Optimization|

PageSpeed Insights (PSI) is a web performance analysis tool developed by Google to help you optimize your website.

It’s a useful tool to find optimization opportunities. It’s one of the analyzers we use in our toolbox.

It’s not a useful scoring system for Shopify sites or complex platforms that integrate with 3rd party apps.

Why we don’t use it as a benchmark/scoring system:

  • Sometimes you implement an optimization that clearly makes your site faster, but then the score goes down 🧐
  • Sometimes you clear warnings they give, and the score goes down
  • Sometimes when comparing 2 sites, the faster site scores lower

All of our Shopify optimization services help to improve your page load time… but sometimes we uncover a bottleneck and score a huge win.

This is a highlight of a big win we scored for a customer to cut their load speed in half.
