98/100 Speed - 9 Passed Rules

The only rule I have to consider fixing is the “leverage browser caching” rule. I failed that test because of two externally linked files: my “avatar” image from and the Google Analytics script. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Below you can find the rules I did pass with flying colors:

100/100 User Experience

No issues found! Easy to achieve with a simple site like this. Here’s Google’s advice for a perfect UX.


I’m sure there are still more optimizations I can work into this site for better accessibility etc. But I haven’t tested the site yet for that.

And I will have to test every single page of this site though for the complete picture…

But I believe the PageSpeed Insight test proves that with a simple site like this blog you should be able to fully achieve a fast delivery of your pages on all devices.
