Many people think that all the hard work is done as soon as they've created their website and got it up and running. All they've got to do now is to sit back and wait for the orders to come rolling in. Unfortunately, that's not always the case for a variety of reasons. One the worst problems - and it's one that is hard to figure out without your own testing equipment - is when your site isn't running efficiently and effectively. I don't know about you, but personally, if I take a look at a new website and it's slow to load or the pages don't respond correctly, I just move on to the next one. More often than not I don't go back there. This is a website owner's worst nightmare.

You see, it's important to have the right tools to test out your website to see if it's running correctly. There's loads of performance monitoring apps out there. Many, though, you have to download onto your system and may prove quite complicated to the amateur website owner. Here though, we have an easy to use performance monitoring app that needs no installation and will continually check your website for quality and speed.

Dareboost is a free online web tool that delivers a comprehensive performance report on your website quality and let's you know how well it's working. What's more' it does it in barely a few seconds. It analyzes your website speed, tests how well your SEO is treating you, checks your site security and accessibility and plenty more. In fact, it tests over 130 different aspects of your website and provides you with a detailed and customized list of priorities - based on the technologies used on your site - that you should fix. To make it easy, the list is delivered directly to your desktop. You can then direct your tech department to fix them up (assuming you have one) or you can follow the step-by-step guidelines to fix them yourself.

Given that your competitors are the ones that will benefit if your site isn't running how it should, Dareboost also lets you test any other competitor's website and then compare it to your own to see who's doing well and who isn't. If your site is 20% slower than your competitors, the loading time will be noticeably different for your users. The free version of the tool allows up to 5 analysis and performance reports per month. As you can guess, that means that there's also a paid 'Pro' version of Dareboost. This version offers unlimited analysis and manager-friendly performance monitoring features including Performance Synthetic Monitoring where you can monitor and specify your own thresholds and identify problems with detailed reports and interactive graphics. It also features what they call User Journey Performance Monitoring. Here you can define your own scenarios and activate monitoring with functional checks and performance goals.

Dareboost automatically tests, analyzes and optimizes your website to make sure your site's web performance, SEO, speed, security and quality are all up to scratch and compare favorably to your competitors' sites. It features dozens of optimization tips to help your site work effectively. Unlike many other similar apps, it doesn't need to be installed but still manages to continuously analyze and test your website pages to make sure they are running at optimum levels at all times. You can see the evolution of your page's major performance indicators on your dashboard at any time but you'll receive weekly, emailed reports that give indicators as to how you can improve performance. 

Many companies already use Dareboost to monitor their website performance. Domino's, Ladbrokes Coral Group, American Express, Rightmove, Shiseido and Homes.com all use these tools regularly to make sure their websites are working well. Alex Logvynovskiy, the Front-End Developer for the search team at Rightmove commented "We use Dareboost as a synthetic monitoring tool to oversee the front-end performance of our core pages. For us, user experience is paramount and Dareboost provides the right balance between technical and business insights, with helpful health-check overviews for product owners and sufficiently detailed data for developers." There are several different pricing plans available for the 'Pro' version depending on your size and needs. These range from US$22 to $160 per month. Dareboost can make sure that your loading time and the quality of your website is an asset rather than an obstacle to the users’ experience.
