I have a list of tools I use to troubleshoot slow websites, including Pingdom (which we run for all of our clients) and the GTMetrix site speed analyser. However, the Content Marketing Institute blog has put together a more comprehensive list, and I’d recommend making a note of it. 13 Great Tools to Put Your Website Load Time in the Fast Lane recommends (deep breath) Chrome DevTools, Dotcom-Monitor, Google Cache Checker, Google Lighthouse, Google PageSpeed, Google Speed Scorecard, GTmetrix, IcoMoon, Pingdom, Tiny PNG, URL Compression Test, Yellow Lab Tools and YSlow, and the article explains what each of them do. Well worth a read.
