This is a list of my favorite website performance tools.


Be careful not to get obsessed with improving performance scores and forget what matters the most: the content.

Google PageSpeed

Google PageSpeed

This is my favorite tool to check and the first I use in the optimization process.

Considering it’s a tool from Google, much of what we see here likely affects Google Search results ranking.

Its feedback is direct and has reference links with detailed information and videos.


If I’m in a hurry, this is the only tool I check.



Another great tool to use, as it sometimes gives additional feedback to Google PageSpeed

Cloudflare Observatory

Cloudflare Observatory

On my free Cloudflare Account, I get 30 monthly requests to the Observatory.

It’s a good tool that gives feedback on what Cloudflare tools you can automatically enable.

The free tools available are sufficient for most websites.

Gift Of Speed Compression Checker

GZIP/Brotli Compression Checker | GiftOfSpeed

You can use the above website to check whether you use GZIP or Brotli compression.

Even though GZIP has been used for a long time on the web, Brotli can deliver better results (more compressed content), and if you use Cloudflare, you can set it up in just a click.
