That awkward moment when Google failed its own website testing tool

Google today launched a new website testing tool to help you determine its speed on both desktop & mobile and mobile-friendliness. It’s a product from the Think With Google team, which provides insights on how to best optimize your website to attract, convert, and retain users.

Just weeks after Netflix launched Fast.com to simply check your Internet speed, Google announced its own tool to help you measure your website’s speed and mobile-friendliness. Frankly speaking, this Netflix’s site is the simplest ever site to test your Internet’s Speed. I mean, just take a look yourself.

It most prominently highlights the statistics about how websites today need to be fast, citing that if the page doesn’t load on mobile in three seconds or less, customers are likely to leave. If a site isn’t easy to use, then they are five times likely to leave as well.

Which are all fair points, except Google doesn’t exactly pass its own test. According to the tool, google’s desktop speeds could be improved by optimizing images and prioritizing visible content. Ouch.

 

But maybe it’s just a fluke? I also tested Blogger, Google’s home for its company blog posts. The results were even worse.

At least Gmail is doing okay.

This test was also run on our own site and Hooli xyz website. If you don’t know what Hooli is then you should probably head to this page as well.

Jarringly enough, the very team that launched this product, has the worst scores by far.

Even Youtube got some bad results.

Maybe it’s time for a little site optimization of your own, fam. We understand you’re not the small business the site targets, but leading by example is a good start.
