For those of you who are not familiar, Google Pagespeed is a great service from Google that empowers you to make decisions that increase the performance of your website. Pagespeed provides page-specific recommendations based on current and emerging industry best practices.
Google Pagespeed Insights for WordPress expands on this core functionality, to provide a host of powerful tools.
Your sites Pagespeed reports are stored locally in your WordPress database. This data is analyzed to provide a ‘bigger picture’ view of your site as a whole. View your highest and lowest scoring pages, your top 5 most common areas for improvement, your average page score, and your average resource sizes.
Reports can be filtered by WordPress Page type, or by custom URL tags. Switch between Mobile and Desktop reports to get platform specific recommendations.
Take a snapshot of any Report Summary to store a “Point in Time” snapshot of that data. Snapshots can be taken of all site reports, or filtered to encompass a specific type of URL. Store Mobile or Desktop specific snapshots.
Snapshot Comparison Tool
Take any two similar snapshots and compare them side by side. This is a great way to benchmark gains when implementing Google Pagespeed recommendations. Take a ‘baseline’ snapshot when you start your work. Take a second snapshot when you are done to compare the two and see how much you’ve accomplished!

Google Pagespeed Insights for WordPress is not limited to just WordPress pages. Add any publicly accessible page either manually, or with the bulk uploader tool. Custom URLs can be custom tagged for sorting in Report Summaries and Snapshots.
