    At a recent SEO Melbourne Meetup, I was introduced to a tool from Google I didn't know existed.
    Have you ever had an app you wanted to know how Google looks at it. Or even your website, I'm sure you've put your site into Page Speed Tools to see what quality score they give you. But they don't go into enough detail to help you get some good results. Although worth digging through that developer section as well, because they have some server side tools you can implement to help with performance.

    Well introducing LightHouse by Google.Inc

    Here are some helpful resources to get you going using this great tool for testing.

    It also allows you to print reports. Quite handy to charge a client on an Audit.

    Have you used this tool before? Share your experiences if you have any?​
