(Using detection to deliver only the pieces necessary to the UX) • How many different tracking tools do you need? How many customer analytics/behavior monitoring beacons?
  15. 15. Tools for Page Speed and Load Times • Google PageSpeed Insights – Follow guidance for both mobile and desktop • Yslow (yslow.org) • Many SEO tools pull in PageSpeed and Yslow into their auditing tools.
