Page speed is the amount of time that it takes for a webpage to load. A page’s loading speed is determined by several different factors, including a site’s server, page filesize, and image compression.

There are many tools available online that allow you to check your website’s loading speed; some of these include Pingdom Website Speed Test Tool and Google PageSpeed Insights. The goal should be to have an optimal loading time (under 2 seconds) for both desktop & mobile.

Fully Loaded Page: This is how long it takes for 100% of the resources on a page to load. This is the most straightforward way to determine how fast page loads.

Time to First Byte: This measures how long it takes for a page to start the loading process.
