Front End Performance Testing & Optimization

How long are users waiting for your site to load?

Improve website performance where it counts most. Find and fix front-end problems.

The majority of user response time is spent on the front end.

That’s where you’ll realize the biggest performance gains for your front-end performance optimization efforts. Start improving front-end performance by:

  1. Reducing the number of requests required to fetch the resources for each page
  2. Reducing the size of the payload needed to fulfill each request
  3. Optimizing client-side processing priorities and script execution efficiency
  4. Managing third-party scripts

The only way to successfully implement these strategies is to continuously monitor, measure, and analyze front-end performance. Real user measurement (RUM) provides the insight you need to deliver the best possible user experience. Not only will you get complete real-time visibility into the user behavior on your site, but you can correlate front-end performance changes with business metrics like bounce rate and conversions.

Keep reading to learn how real user measurement can give you the insight you need to deliver the best possible user experience to your visitors.
