SO PUMPED about this! Scored my website as soon as I saw the blog post (https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/website-grader) ... got a 61%. Was I bummed? A little ... does it help to know the average score is 67%? Yes (but I still have work to do!). 

 

Room for improvement: security? Biggest surprise: we're ahead of the game in SEO (which honestly I think is bc we're hosted by HubSpot).

97 out of 100 isn't bad I suppose 😊— the thing that got us is 39 http requests. We like our pictures too much to get that under 30.

Nice job. Feel you on the http requests. We love our pictures too; I just need to replace a bunch of our hero images with skinnier versionsWebsite_Grader.png

Guess I need to take the course - we got a 56. 

 

I'm glad there is an actionable next step to take after seeing this score - can't wait to learn from the pros. 🙂 

 

@stefen I think you may win for the highest score!

Really happy to see our score! 82/100 is not too shabby! Mostly held back by how much we love the many images we have on our homepage haha, still working on tweaking that though, so hopefully, we will hit the 90% mark soon!

We got 75% on our site. Happy to see that but also ready to get that score much higher. Our biggest improvement is page requests and page speed! Going to work on that with our dev team.

69%. Looks like we can work on improving HTTP requests and page load time. That said, it was nice to see a very strong SEO score, it was a key focus for us this past year!

85%! Not bad and no surprises, just outlined some performance improvements that are already on our radar Smiley Wink

We're at a 74, and the items noted are ones we're aware of from our SEO project earlier this year. It's good to see some of the items on our to-do list being called out here, too.

We got 70% for our website. Our SEO had a perfect score, but we seem to struggle with performance. Image sizes, issues with CSS compression, and high HTTP requests are causing some slower loading times—those will be the areas we can focus our efforts toward.

The biggest surprise for me was when my blog scored a 72% and hubspot recommended that I do some work on my blog.


There are only 5 blog posts as of this writing, and 5 small thumbnail images and I'm getting dinged for page load speed and having an out of date javascript library.

 

Crazy part is, my blog is actually hosted on Hubspot and was migrated by the hubspot team from WordPress.

 

So there's that. Thanks for the good times, website grader. Thanks for the good times.*

While I appreciate Hubspot in creating such a tool.  I prefer to use Googles, as they are the ones that are grading our sites, for actual day to day use.  And for better or worse, they hold the gold standard that sites are guaged against. 🤷‍♂️

There are many instances that Google will find fault in the HS code and their answer is that " it is optimized, but Google doesn't recognize the optimization"...  HUH? Yea, right.

Again, just my 2 cents.
