Did I screw up? This is on desktops. Mobile is 30 for some reason.
You probably have VERY slow hosting, did not compress images, and are using a bulky template if I had to guess. Who's your hosting?
Yeah, first step of fixing it will be moving to a better host ( or try to use some caching plugins ) Then try to fix other issues. Good luck.
You hosting is very slow try to change you hosting .
Your theme is responsive? , what CMS you use?
If it's wordpress, then you can get to 80 with a few good plugins in 20 mins. If it's a static theme you can still get to 95-100 but it will take longer. But as far as hosting, you should be good with any popular VPS recommended on webhostingtalk.
Using Namecheap for hosting. The site consists of XXX galleries, so there are quite a few pictures per page. Thing is: the score was 70/70 just a couple days back. Not much has changed, except I started using a CDN. My load times have gone from 20-25 seconds to 4-5 seconds, but for some reason my pagespeed has plummeted.
Only a few images on the site have not been optimized yet (ie. header, banner and footer images).
Your CDN may be slower for GBot than us. You should read about it in CDN fqs, it could be the point.
Did you see SERP changes since the CDN installation?
You can use tools to optimize your images without losing its quality.
I think you can change your hosting provider,this will reduce server response time as well.
Check with your content if it any irrelevant content available in your site means, try to remove it.
Give you content more precise and clear.
So,these steps will increase your page loading speed I think.
Should Fix :
Optimize your image size, Before uploading the images re-size your image
Browser caching temporarily store some data on a visitor's computer
checkout your hosting company has
Compress all your data into a zip file after uploading it to the domain then you can unzip them, Compression can reduce your page's size . so that it can be able to reduce the server response time
Put your site on a CDN and enable caching. There's no reason to load the images/js/css from your hosting, where you can have them cached in the CDN. That will only leave your database speed - that's on the hosting (unless you have a huge site that asks for mysql optimizations), so if that ends up being the issue after the CDN, consider switching hosting or alternatively going for static pages.
Reduce server response time, Enable Compression, Optimize images, Optimize CSS delivery, Reduce redirects, and Use CDN.
As other people said, it's likely your hosting, or you use a bulky responsive template as shown by "Prioritize Visible Content" and "Compress Images". I don't believe Google uses PageSpeed to determine ranking, as a lot of the criteria come in conflict with some of the things Google provides themselves, such as Google Fonts.
Changed around some CDN settings and optimized the remaining images on the site. And voila! My load times and speed tests have flipped for the better.
Just to let you know, pagespeed has a significant effect on rankings (especially if it's a low PR site).
I suggest some ways for your page speed
1.Enable HTML Compression
Because it reduces the file size across the website, if we enable this we get a chance to save bandwidth and ensure content delivery to the users.
It increase our WP blogs page speed.
3. Minify CSS and JS
4.Optimize Database with WP plugins
It removes the unused blog posts and spam comments.
