Over here you can see that the device type is set to desktop and the main URL of the website already has been filled in.

To see the performance of the website you need to click on Analyze.

Now wait for a couple of seconds to see the speed test score.
It’s 96 and that would be the same score that you will see if you use the Google speed test.

I have made a separate tutorial on how to use that tool as well.

The Google Score is 96, the page load time is 0.7 seconds and the time to first byte is 195 ms.

It is possible to reach the maximum score, but then you would have to rely on the premium paid plug-in in combination with the SG optimizer.

My advice is just use the SG Optimizer Speed Test for a quick scan, but if you really want some more details and suggestions on how to optimize your website then you should use the free Google speed test tool.
