Have you tried to test your website or blog only to find out that it did not pass the Google’s PageSpeed Insights?
Here is a suggestion to help you get a better result in Google’s PageSpeed Insights. This is not meant to be a step-by-step guide; yet I am hoping that this can serve your purpose and save you time.
- I use the following plugins :
- Speed Booster Pack
- WP Smush
- I am also lucky to use SiteGround as my web host/server, which has a caching plugin ready for my WordPress sites.
- I go to Google’s PageSpeed Insights and paste the website URL I want to test.
- I check the results.
- After locating the file, I will copy that file and rename the copy. Ex. style.css is copied and renamed to style-raw.css.
- After making and renaming the copy, I will then open the file and copy the entire content. Ex. Copy-paste content in style.css into the clipboard.
- After copy-pasting, you simply just have to click Minify and retrieve the results located at the right box.
- Once done, save the changes.
- Go back to Google PageSpeed Insights and do the test again.
Let me know what you think of the steps. Do you find this helpful? If yes, please consider sharing this to others via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, blog, etc.
Thanks for sharing. Because the minification process can reduce 10% – 95% code size! This will help the website run faster and then get a high Search Engine Optimization (SEO) score.
