Insights - Understanding what went wrong

Understanding What Went Wrong

Insights don’t just point out where you can improve your website. We’ve included a detailed explanation of why we’ve scored a particular value.

This explanation will often go into detail on what the Insight is looking for – why a particular score has been given, and what a “perfect” example might be.

The Power of Insights

RapidSpike cover a huge amount of monitoring data, in each of our core categories: performance, security, availability, assurance and SEO.

To truly learn about your site and where you can improve your user experience you need to monitor as much as possible. The more data we have, the more Insights we can generate for you.
