This article, we’re going to talk about the full site recommendations report.

SiteImp runs performance tests against each page in your website and comes up with recommendations for each page. One of SiteImp’s biggest goals is to help you prioritize what changes to make for the biggest return on your investment in improved website performance.

The page calculates the most common problems across all your pages. It looks for big mistakes in site templates that slow down every page in your site. Think of it as a list of things to change in your head.html or footer.php files.

Since these tend to be major, site level changes they tend to be quite fast and the return on investment is high. You can change a couple of lines and profit from it.
