    Hello there,

    With the new Google search for mobile devices, we are concerned how our site now performs on “Google PageSpeed Insights” (I have included details and content in the private section). I am working my way through my images to try and compress them further (so they load quicker etc.). However there are sections on the report that I do not understand how to resolve and or maybe theme related …

    Enable compression
    Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
    Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
    Your page has 12 blocking script resources and 13 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
    None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.
    Leverage browser caching
    Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
    Prioritize visible content
    Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
    The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response. Only about 20% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response see screenshot.

    Will there be a them update to resolve these issues or can you advise is there anything wee need to do?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi James!

    Are you using any caching or minify plugins? If not, you could start by trying these to see if that makes any difference:

    Regards,

    Rikard,

    Apologies in the delay getting back to you. To answer your question – no, we are not currently using any of those plugins. I will have a look into them and see if they help improve the status of our website with “Google PageInsights”.

    Also, what does the following mean (taken from our last report by Google PageInsights) and is this something that you or I can resolve?

    I would like to be notified of updates as well. I was ranked a 55/100 and will most likely be penalized.

    Your page has 3 blocking script resources and 9 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
    None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

    Adding BWP Minify increased my score slightly to 58/100.

    Hello again,

    I have been busy trying to improve the performance of my website. I think today I made good progress. I installed the following plugins …

    Use Google Libraries; WP Fastest Cache

    After this I then used the following to test …

    http://checkgzipcompression.com/

    This showed that I had enabled GZip compression (using the option in the WP Fastest Cache plugin) and the compression achieved. I then ran Google Page Insights against my website after these changes and goodness, what an improvement. Still work to do. I am going to purchase the premium version of the plugin to see if that improves things further.

    Please can we have a response on the following as I am sure it will be an issue for many more users …

    Please see below for my results before and after installing the above plugins; enabling GZip compression …

    After : Mobile – 54/100 SPEED; 1 passed rule; 98/100 User Experience; 4 passed rules. Desktop – 75/100 Suggestions Summary; 3 passed rules

    Please can you help to resolve the above Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi!

    The “Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold” error is caused by files which have to be loaded before any of the content on the site because they are need for the site’s look, feel and function, I think you would get that error on any page you put through that test, unless the site is not using stylesheets or scripts.

    Best regards,
    Rikard
