to the WordPress speed test from WPspace
The WPspace WordPress Speedtest analyzes the loading times of your website and then classifies them. Ideally, the loading time of your website should be in the green zone, i.e. better than 80 %. If the pagespeed test 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 you low prices, but also longer loading times for your website, which will significantly affect the success of your website.
As a result of the WPspace Speedtest you will receive the Pagespeed of your website. Pagespeed refers to the time that visitors to websites or stores wait until they are fully loaded. The pagespeed of your WordPress website or store is essential for a successful SEO ranking in all search engines and for a Positive user experience via mobile or desktop. With the WPspace WordPress Speedtest you can Analyze the performance of your WordPress website for free and then receive a detailed report with important insights about your pagespeed, such as your individual First Contentful Paint (FCP) and First Input Delay (FID).
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 the first element is loaded and visible. The transmission speed as well as the amount and size of the data transferred are decisive factors here.
The First Input Delay (FID) describes the first input delay, i.e. the response speed of a page. The response speed can also be easily tested by clicking on a control element or navigation, for example, and waiting for the page to respond. This time is described and measured by the FID. Fast response times ensure a positive user experience for visitors, which is also referred to as user experience.
The demands of website visitors are becoming ever higher and their patience ever shorter; as soon as an element loads even a few milliseconds longer than usual, they leave the website and go to the competition. This can be avoided with a high pagespeed and good WordPress hosting.
After you've done your WordPress speed test, you're probably asking yourself the following question: What is a fast or slow website? To answer this question, Google has defined measurement value ranges for First Contentful Paint and First Input Delay, which allow websites to be assigned to the respective category. Google defines the respective categories as follows:
Fast website: FCP between 0 and 1 second I FID between 0 and 50 milliseconds
Average website: FCP between 1 and 2.5 seconds I FID between 50 and 250 milliseconds
Slow website: 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 little 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 deteriorate / improve due to changes.
The detailed Report of the WordPress Speedtest serves as the perfect basis for the next steps to optimize the page speed of your website. Of course, the loading time often depends not only on your WordPress host, but also on other factors such as integrated Java files, extremely large graphics or videos. To get started, we recommend replacing very large files with smaller graphics or videos. However, make sure you strike a healthy balance so that the resolution of the image/video does not suffer.
