GTMetrix.com Website Tutorial

What is GTMetrix.com?

GTMetrix.com is a free tool that analyzes

your pages’ speed performance.

Using Page Speed and YSlow,

GTMetrix generates scores for

your pages and offers actionable

recommendations on how to fix them.

Everybody deserves a fast web

experience. GTMetrix can help you

develop a faster, more efficient and

all around improved website

experience for your users.

GTMetrix is developed by the good

Folks at Gossamer Threads,

a Vancouverbased company

with over 19 years experience

in web technology.

“The web should be fast.” – Google, Inc.

Let’s get started!

Locate your favorite browser.

In our example, it’s Google Chrome

Click icon

In address bar, type: www. gtmetrix.com

Press Enter

Here’s the home page of GTMetrix.com

For better experience of using the site,

let’s sign up for an account.

A window will appear, just fill it out

for needed information: First name,

Last name, Email, Password,

Confirm your Password and click

Create Account button.

Click

If creating an account is successful,

user will be redirected to dashboard:

want to analyze then click Go button.

Upon getting scores, start to optimize

your site. Let’s check on the Breakdown.

There’s a lot of recommendations in the

list that will definitely help you

determine what factors cause your

site to be fast or slow in loading.

Grade, Type and Priority are also

included in this part.

Let’s discuss YSlow tab this time.

YSlow tab recommends things that

make your site slow in loading. Like on the

previous tab, Grade, Type and Priority

are also included in this part.

The third tab is about Timeline.

This shows the Waterfall of your site.

The Waterfall Graph displays the loading

behaviour of your site. It can be

or more complex issues.

And for the last tab which is History,

it is not applicable in our example.

To keep a record of report,

just download the file in PDF form.

One of the benefits of registered

GTMetrix’ recommendations are

are meant to be generic, best practices

but not everything is required to

be applied in your site.

Congratulations! You’ve just learned

how to use GTMetrix.com and start

to optimize your site and work

with various organizations to make

intelligent web strategy and

infrastructure decisions.
