ūüíĮ How to Get a Perfect PageSpeed Score for WordPress

This page will help you improve your website’s PageSpeed Insights score by optimizing various aspects of how pages are delivered across the internet.

Having a fast website is not only important for your visitors, but it also plays a role in how likely search engines are to show your website in search results.

Is a Google PageSpeed Insights Score of 100 Possible?

Yes, of course it is!¬†The WordPress site that you’re on right now consistently scores 100 on PageSpeed Insights¬†(or pretty darn close to it) for mobile and desktop.

Through a combination of just three types of plugins, you can drastically improve your WordPress website’s PageSpeed insights score. These three plugin categories are:

  • Caching pages (W3 Total Cache):¬†Instead of dynamically generating web pages each time a page is requested, you can speed up page load time by caching pages
  • Compressing images (EWWW IO):¬†Since images are often the biggest recourse on your web page, properly compressing them is critical to reduce bandwidth
  • Cutting the fat (Perfmatters):¬†Your theme, plugins, and WordPress itself is loaded with extra features that you don’t need to be loaded on your web pages

I invite you to watch the playlist below which contains seven videos that will walk you through the process of improving your PageSpeed Insights score for your WordPress website.
