What are Google Lighthouse Audits?
Google Lighthouse is an open-source quality testing tool built by Google. It
analyses a given url and performs a series of audits, with useful
recommendations on how to improve.
No need to run Lighthouse manually – schedule a regular audit of your site to be made automatically at an interval of your choice.
RapidSpike uses live test environments to simulate real conditions, which are more accurate than running test locally.
Select locations around the world for your tests, and choose to audit via mobile or desktop.
Record your results and trend improvements over time. Export your results to save and share with your team.

The Google Lighthouse, But Better
All your audits, in full, returned in a clear and easy-to-read dashboard. Audits are categorised, so you can see what you passed, failed, and what audits are performed manually.
Each audit can then be opened to show a detailed explanation, remediation, plus a link to Google’s resources.
“RapidSpike is intuitive to set up and to use. As a business we’ve been able to adopt their platform and get value from it straight away.”
Pharmacy2u use RapidSpike to manage platform reliability and performance. They also use Google Lighthouse audits to identify and resolve issues across their website.
