Google PageSpeed Insights

This is a third-party service created by Google. The service inspects your website and gives you feedback about what changes can possibly lead to better site performance. More information for the service can be found here: https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/insights/about

NoteThe top-ranking websites in Google have an average score of 80.78. Websites with higher scores are considered well optimized.

PageSpeed Insights relies on an API key. This API key needs to be configured before you can use the service. NitroPack is shipped with a default API key, which is the following:

We recommend that you obtain your own API key. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Google API Console: https://code.google.com/apis/console
  2. Create a new project and enable the PageSpeed Insights API for this project.
  3. Navigate to APIs & auth > Credentials and create a new Public API access key. You will be prompted for a key type - select Server key.
  4. Copy/paste the created key to NitroPack > Settings > Settings > Google PageSpeed API Key.

PageSpeed Insights is integrated as part of NitroPack. This allows you to diagnose your website directly from your NitroPack admin panel. To refresh your website score click the refresh button located above the score graph.

NoteMake sure that your website is publicly accessible, otherwise Google PageSpeed Insights will not be able to inspect your home page.
