How to Use the Blue Triangle Industry Benchmarks – and Why it Matters!
Do you know how your website performance and Google Page Speed Score stack up against your industry? With the Blue Triangle Industry Benchmarks, you can confidently answer this question by comparing the web performance of thousands of websites. If you’ve followed our annual Cyber 5 reporting of the fastest and slowest retail websites, then you’ve already witnessed some of these capabilities in action!
The Industry Benchmarks enable you to better understand your website’s overall experience based on competitor and industry comparisons. Quickly assess a weekly snapshot of four key digital performance metrics, which include Page Load Time, Time to Interactive, and Google Page Speed Score on both Desktop and Mobile.
Page Load Time is simply the average amount of time it takes for a website page to display on the screen. On the other hand, Time to Interactive is the amount of time it takes for the webpage to become fully interactive. This is a Google Lighthouse metric and is weighed heavily in Google’s Page Speed Score calculation. Speaking of which, the Google Page Speed Score assesses how quickly it takes a website to load. In general, a score of 90 or above is ideal. On the flipside, a score of 50 or below is considered poor, and any score between 50 to 90 needs improvement.
