Lighthouse tool for website and blog publishers
Google AdSense team announced in the month of February 2018, that Lighthouse tool can be used through the Google Chrome extension. The same is now also available through Google Chrome Developer tools.
What is Lighthouse?
Lighthouse is a open source tool. It is automated. The use of Lighthouse is to improve the quality of web pages in your website. If your site contains hundreds of pages, it becomes difficult to track each and every page manually. It is difficult to know whether any page is becoming poor or needs further updation or more optimisation.
