We launched our new page speed report to help users analyze and optimize loading time. Now, with our new advanced filters, it’s even easier to identify slow loading pages.
The new advanced filters in the page speed report provide you with more opportunities to dig deep into your data, making it easier to identify slow pages to fix. To find out more about the new page speed report, read this article.
You can find the page speed report in Website Success, under the navigation point "Performance". When you are in the report, you see the option to add a filter at the top of the screen.
Figure 1: Add a filter in the Page Speed reportThere are a range of metrics you can choose to filter by:
After choosing a metric, you can then choose an operator based on the metric. For example, if you select a duration metric, you can choose between "more than", "less than", "equals or more than", or "equals or less than". You can then choose between seconds and milliseconds (seconds is default).
If you filter by title or URL, you can choose between "contains", "does not contain", "is", "is not", "is empty", and "is not empty".
When you apply the filter, the report is updated to show you the results that fit the criteria. Once you have applied filters, you can easily edit or remove them. You can also show and hide the filter panel.
You can apply multiple filters with "and" logic. For example, if you want to quickly find pages that are exceptionally slow for a particular subdomain, you could add filters for
Figure 2: Add multiple filtersThen you see the results listed in the report, in one clear overview. The visualization above the report also updates to match the results in the list. In this example, only one URL for the subdomain had a speed index higher than 3. The visualization therefore shows that 100% of pages are slow.

To find out how to fix the issues that are causing the slow page speed, you can go directly to Google’s page speed insights to get concrete recommendations. Hover your mouse over the chart and you will have an option to be directed straight to Page Speed Insights for suggestions about how to improve this URL’s page speed.
It’s possible there could be differences between the scores in Ryte and in page speed insights. You can trust both scores, but they may differ, for example due to the exact time in which they were analyzed. If a page is crawled when the load on the web server is higher, the page will load more slowly.
The new advanced filters will help you analyze your website’s page speed in even more depth. Using multiple filters, you can easily dig deeper into your website’s data and identify the pages that need to be fixed most urgently.
