Prioritizing Mobile Websites
In yet another move by Google to stress the importance of mobile browsing, they released two new tools to help improve your mobile site. Follow along to learn more about each of these new tools and some other viable options to get insight into your mobile site speed.
Google’s Mobile Scorecard

Google has claimed the tool is capable of reporting insights into thousands of websites from 12 different countries. Give this tool a try and see how your website shapes up compared to your competitors!
Google has created another tool specifically designed to show the monetary value of having a mobile-friendly, optimized website. You are able to input your domain and it will tell you the current speed of the site and will then allow you to see the monetary value in estimated annual revenue after improving your mobile site speed by 0.6-6.0 seconds.

Pingdom is a great tool to use that measures your desktop site speed. Though this tool isn’t designed to analyze mobile websites, it will give you a thorough report about what exactly is slowing down your website. You can use this information to make changes and decrease load times.
Google’s classic tool PageSpeed Insights will give your mobile website a speed and optimization grade. Below the two grades, you can find page statistics and suggestions for optimization. Use these suggestions to make changes to your website and check back afterward to run another test.
