Avg. Page Load Time
This is average the time, in seconds, it takes the page to load. It begins when the navigation begins (ie. clicking on a link) and ends when the webpage has completed loading in the user’s browser. This metric will always be the largest because it will include the whole timeline. If you have a high page load time, don’t immediately assume it is because of content on your site. Since it includes all steps, the longer time may be from redirects, server-side calls, or a user’s location and network connection.
