Speed up your website

Google recently launched a tool called “Think with Google Test my site.” It simply crawls your site with a slow 3G mobile browser and checks how fast the site loads by giving some bold conclusions. We ran a little campaign on social media where we picked the site of one of our clients and optimized it so Google would like it. Check it out on our social media for more details: twitter or Instagram.

Want to know how to make a page load faster?

According to Google, the result before starting the optimizations was quite sad: 10 second loading time and a 29% estimated visitor loss!
