Information about the WordPress SpeedTest
How does the WordPress Speedtest work?
The WPspace WordPress Speedtest analyses the loading times of your website and then ranks them. Ideally, the loading time of your website should be in the green zone, i.e. better than 80 %. If the Pagespeedtest of your WordPress website shows an orange or red result, i.e. very slow loading and response times, you should think about your WordPress hosting provider. Cheap providers often offer low prices, but in return they also offer longer loading times for your website, which significantly affect the success of your website.
What is Pagespeed?
As a result of the WPspace Speedtest, you receive the pagespeed of your website. Pagespeed refers to the time visitors wait for a website or shop to load completely. The pagespeed of your WordPress website or shop is essential for a successful SEO ranking in all search engines as well as for a positive user experience via mobile or desktop. With the WPspace WordPress Speedtest you can analyse the performance of your WordPress website for free and receive a detailed report with important insights about your pagespeed, such as your individual First Contentful Paint (FCP) and First Input Delay (FID).
What does First Contentful Paint and First Input Delay mean?
A detailed WordPress speed test spits out many different terms with values as a result. With the help of the measurement data from First Contentful Paint (FCP) and First Input Delay (FID), websites can be classified into the categories slow, average or fast.
First Contentful Paint (FID) describes the time that visitors to a website wait until a first element is loaded and visible. The transmission speed as well as the amount and size of the transmitted data are decisive factors for this.
The First Input Delay (FID) describes the first input delay, i.e. the reaction speed of a page. The reaction speed can also be easily tested by clicking on a control element or navigation and waiting for the page to react. This time is described and measured by the FID. Fast response times provide visitors with a positive user experience, which is also referred to as user experience.
The demands of website visitors are becoming ever higher and patience ever shorter. As soon as an element takes even a few milliseconds longer to load than usual, people leave the website and go to the competition. This can be avoided with high pagespeed and good WordPress hosting.
After you have done your WordPress speed test, you probably ask yourself the following question: What is a fast or slow website? To answer this question, Google has defined measurement ranges for First Contentful Paint and First Input Delay, which allow you to assign websites to the respective category. Google defines the respective categories as follows:
Fast web page: FCP between 0 and 1 second I FID between 0 and 50 milliseconds
Average web page: FCP between 1 and 2.5 seconds I FID between 50 and 250 milliseconds
Slow web page: FCP higher than 2.5 seconds I FID higher than 250 milliseconds
Of course, other criteria and factors can be taken into account when evaluating the page speed of websites, but FCP and FID are the most common values for your WordPress site. You will also receive the most important values as a result if you run our free WordPress speed test for your website.
A small tip: regularly carry out new speed tests of your website to check whether the result remains the same. Sometimes the loading time of your website can worsen / improve due to changes.
Advantages of fast WordPress hosting
Better SEO ranking thanks to load time optimisation
Anyone who runs a website has come across the term SEO. SEO-optimised WordPress pages can make it to the top of Google - and without paying for expensive ads. For optimal SEO optimisation, many factors must be taken into account, such as page quality, meta information in the HTML or page structure. But also the loading time plays an important role for the SEO ranking of your WordPress page.
With slow loading times, you will never make it to the first page of organic Google results. With WPspace as your WordPress host, you can optimise the load times of your WordPress website by up to 420% - for a better result of your SEO ranking and more discoverability on the internet.
Higher conversion rate and user retention
Who doesn't know it: you visit a website, it loads and loads, and you leave the site again due to your own impatience. Many website operators don't even know that their website involves long waiting times.
That's why everyone can analyse the loading speed of their WordPress website with our Pagespeed Test. If the loading time test of your website shows a red or orange result, you should definitely think about a server move. As a WordPress hosting service, we are able to optimise your loading times by up to 420% compared to low-cost providers. The lightning-fast loading times thanks to WPspace increase the conversion rate and create a positive brand experience for your visitors and potential customers.
How do I make my website faster?
The detailed report of the WordPress Speedtest serves as the perfect basis for the next steps to optimise the pagespeed of your website. Of course, the loading time is often not only dependent on your WordPress hoster, but also on other factors such as integrated Java files, enormously large graphics or videos. To start with, we recommend replacing very large files with smaller graphics or videos. However, make sure you keep a healthy balance so that the resolution of the image/video does not suffer. You can also find tips and tricks about WordPress in our WordPress help.
If you get a red or orange result on your WordPress website speed test, the first step we recommend is to change your hosting provider. At WPspace, real hosting and WordPress experts will help you choose the right tariff for you and your WordPress website(s). We will be happy to carry out an analysis of your pagespeed in advance and measure the performance of your website again with the help of the WordPress speed test after the move.
