How Hard Is It to Optimize a WordPress Website so it Loads Faster?
Many factors affect how fast a web page loads, but generally, most WordPress sites can be optimized to load fast if hosted by a good web hosting company. You can test your website, competitors, or sites like Google, MSN, or Facebook by visiting PageSpeed Insights or one of the other popular services like GTmetrix or Pingdom.
Check The Results (CRAZY?) – Google Failed Their Own PageSpeed Insights Test?
But Wait! It gets worse, and there may be an explanation, but you can test this yourself by visiting their website. The Google home page includes a search box, one small logo, and that’s about it. Also, it is hosted by a company with virtually unlimited resources, yet the results are terrible. The fact that they fail their own website performance test brings to mind the phrase that includes “judge not.” Again, there may be a valid explanation, but Google searches for a reason come up empty.
To be fair, they are not alone. So, who else fails the Desktop test? In our tests msn.com (desktop), facebook.com (desktop and mobile), twitter.com (desktop and mobile), well, you get the idea. So, a perfect score is not required, but you need a GOOD SCORE to avoid harming your ranking.

Although we were able to run the Pingdom test on the Google website without any problems, their own PageSpeed Insights tool will not run the test on Google.com. You will notice in the image there is an error, and in the mobile view, it believes their own tool is a robot? It may be that they just don’t want people running the test on their site, oh well.
