WPRocket / Google PageSpeed assist

Personally, if I’m going to spend money on a efficiency optimization plugin I might go along with Flying Press as an alternative of WP Rocket.

I’m an energetic member of many WP web page velocity and efficiency optimization teams on Fb as properly on WP Rocket FB group and there are a whole lot of complaints relating to the effectiveness of WP Rocket.

Particularly with regards to CSS and JS supply optimization in addition to picture optimization and, as you’ll be able to think about, these parts are CRITICAL with regards to bettering a web site´s efficiency or web page loading velocity.

Now, I took the freedom of checking your web site´s Google PageSpeed Insights (GPSI )outcomes and that is what I can see…


I’ve by no means heard of EasyWeb theme and it appears to be like prefer it´s not out there on ThemeForest…

The theme is loading an awfully massive variety of sources (CSS and JS) that aren’t even getting used…


1.4 MB of unused sources JUST coming from the theme it´s a transparent signal (a minimum of to me) it is a poorly coded theme so, I might recommend altering themes to a extra lightweight, fast-loading, absolutely customizable one.

Actually, many of the points triggered inside GPSI with regards to Take away Unused CSS are associated to the theme…


These are my prime selections…​

  • GeneratePress​

  • Astra​

  • Neve​

  • OceanWP​

This wouldn´t be my best choice with regards to web page builders. I choose Elementor and even Divi earlier than utilizing VC.

Based on Chrome DevTools, VC is loading a bit greater than 500 KiB of unused sources to the web page.

I’m typically towards utilizing sliders anyplace within the above-the-fold content material (hero header part) because it creates an excessive amount of stress particularly for cell gadgets and, one of many slider plugins that negatively impacts efficiency probably the most is RevSlider by far.

I do know it creates beautiful animations that soar within the eye however that always comes with a trade-off and its standard efficiency.

Personally, I might use them beneath the fold.

Based on GPSI, one of many largest points is Render-Blocking Assets and the most important liable for this are exactly Visible Composer and RevSlider…


Actually, wanting on the Scale back JavaScript execution time tab contained in the prognosis part on GPSI we are able to see extra points associated to how the RevSlider and the theme ship sources on web page load…



Your web site can also be executing a good quantity of scripts being downloaded from exterior domains…​

The final two are generally utilized in most web sites however, the primary one, it´s not.

My suggestion is to only delay the execution of the Tidio scripts as it isn’t required in your web site´s HTML to render correctly.

That is one thing WP Rocket can also be missing because it´s not delaying the execution of this exterior script.

I counsel you to strive which is a free plugin you’ll be able to obtain immediately from the WP repository and simply enter tidio and set a delay of two or 3 seconds.

As a aspect word, Flying Script was developed by the identical man of Flying Press (#justsaying)​


Some photographs loading in your homepage are NOT optimized for cell customers. Check out this one for instance…
That picture is 2560 x 1709 pixels and near 200 KiB…That’s simply huge for any cell system on a cell connection to deal with.

And, to make issues even worse, that picture is being displayed within the above-the-fold portion of the web page which clearly triggers some LCP points.

One other image-related challenge is a few of them don´t have any dimension specified within the HTML doc and, once more, that is one thing WP Rocket ought to have dealt with.

If WP Rocket just isn’t dealing with this challenge, be certain that this characteristic is enabled within the picture optimization plugin (Smushit) your web site is utilizing and re-test.


One other frequent challenge with web sites is to serve fonts from Google Fonts (exterior supply) which additionally creates small efficiency points as browsers must make a DNS lookup for these sources.

Fonts are a static useful resource that not often modifications over time so, one of the best observe is to only obtain and host them domestically.

Additionally, be certain that so as to add a “fallback” attribute to fonts to keep away from or stop any FOIT points as displayed on GPSI…


The best approach to do it’s through the use of the plugin. Additionally free and developed by Gijo (identical man from Flying Press).

And that´s just about it!

I hope this helps and factors you in the best route.

Cheers and keep secure!!​
