There are a number of ways and options available for you to check the Page speed of your website.
Google PageSpeed Insights
Google offers their own “PageSpeed Insights” tool, which helps you determine the PageSpeed of a website with a PageSpeed Score, a grading scale which can go from 0 to 100.
If you analyse a website with the PageSpeed Insights, you will receive concrete instructions for how you can improve your PageSpeed, in addition to the overall score.
In Google Analytics you can check the average PageSpeed of a website, as well as other speed metrics.
