Google Finally Launches the Anticipated Page Speed Report in Search Console



Google is now rolling out the highly anticipated page speed report in Search Console that was shown off earlier this year.

Google officially previewed the new page speed report this past May, but it was first uncovered back in February. That marks roughly 9 months of waiting for this report to launch.

Now that the public rollout has begun, let’s take a look and see what’s in the report and how site owners can benefit from in.

Google Search Console Page Speed Report

Google’s new page speed report pulls data from the Chrome User Experience Report and automatically groups URLs into the categories of “Fast,” Moderate,” and “Slow.” It looks just like other Search Console reports that group URLs together based on how well they meet certain criteria (such as having valid structured data markup).

The report also identifies the issues causing slowdowns and further categorizes pages by grouping URLs with similar issues together.

Clicking on one of the identified issues to learn more information will bring users to Google’s Page Speed Insights tool. From there, site owners can learn more about how to optimize their pages to solve the specific issue.

In addition to checking on the slow and moderate pages, you can drill deeper into the fast pages to learn more about their performance:

Google recommends using this report both for monitoring performance over time and for tracking website fixes. When an issue is fixed, site owners can return to the report to track whether users actually experienced a performance improvements.


Google says this report, is currently “experimental” in the sense that it will be revised and improved upon over time. However, unlike typical Google experiments, this report will be rolling out to everyone.



Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365: What’s the best office suite for business?



Google G Suite vs. Microsoft Office

Once upon a time, Microsoft Office ruled the business world. By the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Microsoft’s office suite had brushed aside rivals such as WordPerfect Office and Lotus SmartSuite, and there was no competition on the horizon.

Then in 2006 Google came along with Google Docs & Spreadsheets, a collaborative online word processing and spreadsheet duo that was combined with other business services to form the Google Apps suite, later rebranded as G Suite, and now as Google Workspace. Although Google’s productivity suite didn’t immediately take the business world by storm, over time it has gained both in features and in popularity, boasting 6 million paying customers, according to Google’s most recent public stats in March 2020.

Microsoft, meanwhile, has shifted its emphasis away from its traditional licensed Office software to Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), a subscription-based version that’s treated more like a service, with frequent updates and new features. Microsoft 365 is what we’ve focused on in this story.

Nowadays, choosing an office suite isn’t as simple as it once was. We’re here to help.

Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365

Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 have much in common. Both are subscription-based, charging businesses per-person fees every month, in varying tiers, depending on the capabilities their customers are looking for. Although Google Workspace is web-based, it has the capability to work offline as well. And while Microsoft 365 is based on installed desktop software, it also provides (less powerful) web-based versions of its applications.

Both suites work well with a range of devices. Because it’s web-based, Google Workspace works in most browsers on any operating system, and Google also offers mobile apps for Android and iOS. Microsoft provides Office client apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, and its web-based apps work across browsers.
