How does the GTmetrix report work?

GTmetrix is a tool that grades websites based on two key criteria: performance and structure.

  • Performance has a 70% weighting in the overall grade. The Performance Score explains how well a site page performs from a user perspective.
  • The structure element is worth 30%, of GTmetrix's grade. The report focuses on how well the page is built for optimal performance.

What does the PageSpeed report say?

Below is a description of key elements of the PageSpeed report, put together by Lighthouse – an open-source, automated tool for improving the quality of web pages – what they mean, and how well CasinoCanada performed in each of them:

    • Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) – measures the time a website takes to show the user the largest content on the screen.
    • First Contentful Paint (FCP) – tracks the time from when the page starts loading to when any part of the page's content is rendered.
    • First Input Delay (FID) – tracks when a visitor interacts with a web page and when the browser starts processing the interaction.
    • Interaction to Next Paint (INP) – a web performance metric that measures user interface responsiveness – aka, how rapidly a website responds to user commands, such as a click or scroll.
    • Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) – how much a page's layout shifts as it loads. A good user experience is a score of 0.1 or less.
    • Time to First Byte (TTFB) – refers to the time between the browser requesting a page and when it receives the first byte of information.

A key attribute to this report is that the results are compiled over 28 days, and does not rely on the here-and-now data sets. It means a much more accurate picture of the site’s performance.

Here’s how the CasinoCanada site measures up against its peers in the Lighthouse Core Web Vitals Assessment:
