2. Speed Test:
Google might not be looking much at the speed but it is also one of the factors for your ranking to improve. To check the speed of your website, Google has provided a tool called Page Speed Test.

It will only check the code and how efficiently it runs. To get a better understanding of the rating of your website's speed, you can use GTMetrix.
Using GTMerix will give you a detailed data of how user are actually getting the data from your website and it will guide you as to how you can improve you website.
