Gathering Page Speed Score Baselines & Understanding Page Speed Performance

Prior to enabling Huckabuy’s Page Speed and configuring it to optimize your site it is recommended that you gather Lighthouse scores for various URLs on your site to understand the impact of Huckabuy’s Page Speed.

Begin by selecting a few URLs that are important to your business, for example the site’s home page, a product page, or any other page you know is slow. Run aGoogle Lighthousereport orPage Speed Insights, both mobile and desktop, for the selected pages. Recording the Lighthouse scores and checking the “Opportunities” section will give you a good idea of what Page Speed boosters and enhancements could be turned on to improve the site, i.e. “Minify CSS & Javascript”, “Reduce Javascript Execution Time”. Now that you have a baseline of page speed scores you can enable Huckabuy’s Page Speed and begin to configure it to your site.

After you have enabled and configured Page Speed you can run new Lighthouse reports for your selected URLs to analyze the performance and understand the impact of our product.
