    Question How does Google's new web.dev tool rate your site's performance?

    Google has a new tool (currently in Beta) to analyze websites using their lighthouse API. The tool can be found at web.dev.

    Google says their web platform team has spent over a decade learning about user needs. And they say they want to make it as easy as possible for developers to master today's defining standards. The tool is designed to provide actionable guidance and analysis.

    It is easy to run an audit - just enter a url and press the "run audit" button. Scores are provided for performance, accessibility, best practices, and SEO. Each score ranges from 0 to 100. And specific feedback is provided about the underlying reason for each score, and how it might be improved.

    I found the results of testing a few sites quite interesting, and hope you will as well. I invite you to audit a site of yours and share your opinion of the audit here.

    For this week's poll, please audit the home page of your main website and vote based on the Performance score. And please also share all your scores and your thoughts about them in a post.

    For the GPWA home page the scores were as follows:

    Performance: 74 (we got dinged for render-blocking resources)
    Accessibility: 42 (we got dinged for not having image alt attributes and having form attributes without labels)
    Best Practices: 57 (we got dinged for not yet using HTTPS)
    SEO: 80 (we got dinged for not having a viewport meta tag)

    In the case of the GPWA home page, the first recommendation is to eliminate render-blocking resources. The general overview states "Fast page loads result in higher user engagement, more pageviews, and improved conversion. You can improve your page load speed by inlining links and scripts that are required for first paint, and deferring those that aren't." Lighthouse lists all of the render-blocking links or scripts it has detected, and provides guidance regarding how to make improvements.

    Another tool released to get more people on chrome, and another way to get more web data.

    /blast from the past
    Even though you may not use Google as your main search engine, all web developers will need this really great Toolbar so you can see your website ranking.

    This really great toolbar is the absolute best ranking tool available to any web developer.

    Now that Google is the #1 search engine in the world, we will throw away the toolbar thing cause it was not as good as we said it was anyway.
    /end blast from the past

    I have not yet taken the time to run a diags on any sites yet, but alt image tags is something I have been using for a long time, but caution for those who may need to add them, gone are the days where you will want to use them to keyword stuff, as that may raise spam scores.

    It’s quite a handy little tool. For my website: www.usaplayerswelcome.com I received the following statistics:

    99 for Performance.
    64 for Accessibility.
    57 for Best Practices.
    And 80 for SEO.

    This was my results bit worrying that best practices show as 0%. It looks like it is mainly down to http2 (whatever that is).

    Any ideas how to resolve this? It says Cloudflare has this feature and when I checked it does show that it is on.

    Google is rapidly becoming out of date with it's slavish approach to page speed in 3rd world countries.

    Mobile in 1st world countries (the only real market for affiliates) is pretty much 4G standard, and looking to move to 5G is the next 1-2 years - and the bandwidth at 4G/5G means all pages display almost instantly.

    my html slots site did better than I thought, considering I've not done much with it in ages.

    97 for Performance.

    89 for Accessibility.
    57 for Best Practices.
    91 for SEO.

    One non-gaming site I redid a couple years ago following all of the page-speed recommendations scores as follow:

    99 for Performance.
    100 for Accessibility.
    86 for Best Practices.
    100 for SEO.

    Its the same trash tool like PageSpeed Insights...and nobody really should care about it.

    Dont waste your time if your page,works fine / speed / code / navigation....
    The recommendations after the scan are stupi* as fuc* and i cant understand why google release this useless tool.

    This tool can help to see or fix problems...but nobody should try to get 90/100 points - waste of time.

    Side note, it took a bit but I managed to remove the Christmas images in one of the earlier posts, and there may have been a missing image that I downloaded before cleaning up the post, and can re-attach it if needed.
