To track website speed with Google Analytics, you can follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Google Analytics account and select the website profile you want to track.
  2. Go to the "Admin" section at the bottom left corner of the sidebar.
  3. In the "Property" column, click on "Tracking Info" and select "Data Collection".
  4. Make sure the option "Enable Site Speed Sample Rate" is set to "ON". This will instruct Google Analytics to collect data about page load times.
  5. Save the changes.


Now that you have enabled site speed tracking, you can view the data within your Google Analytics reports. Follow the steps below to access this information:

  1. Go to the "Behavior" section in the sidebar.
  2. Under "Site Speed", select "Overview".
  3. You will be provided with various reports related to site speed, such as average page load time, server response time, and load time by page title.


By analyzing these reports, you can identify any performance issues on your website and take appropriate actions to optimize its speed.
