Website Speed : GTmetrix

Website loading speed is becoming increasingly important not just for better user experience but also as SEO tool. Google has announced that they are using page speed in their ranking algorithm. As developers and marketers look to optimize their sites, page speed should be among the top optimizations to consider.
Two of the major speed analysis tools are Google's Page Speed and Yahoo's YSlow.

At GTmetrix you can evaluate your website speed and its performance. The benefit of GTmetrix is that you can analyze your page using both services(Page Speed & YSlow), giving you different perspectives on how to optimize your code.

Speed is a crucial aspect in providing a pleasant user experience to visitors of your site. It ensures that a visitor's limited attention span and time are spent on actual content and not wasted waiting for images and scripts to load. Studies have shown that users will not tolerate more than a 4 second load time. If your site fails to offer a quick response, your users will leave.GTmetrix uses Google Page Speed and Yahoo! YSlow to grade your site's performance and provides actionable recommendations to fix these issues.
 What's the difference?
Page Speed and YSlow generally offer the same service, however there are differences in their calculations. Each service analyses a page using a set of rules that they believe are most relevant to page speed and performance. Most of the rules overlap or are very similar to each other, but in general your scores should be comparable
Just paste the url and GTmetrix will analyse the website, showing your speed, page load time, page size and requests. Not just that at GTmetrix you can also compare performances of different Websites. So go ahead and find out  if your website is optimized.
