    I set up cloud flare and installed the W3TC plugin for my site and now I got my page speed up to 94/100 (according to the google page speed plugin)

    I am still getting recommendations but I cannot figure out how to do this with W3TC.

    These are my suggestions:

    Leverage browser caching (red) mostly it cites my plugins and some other minor objects
    Minimize request size (orange) this cites my google +1 and youtube videos
    Defer parsing of JavaScript (orange) cites the same things as Leverage browser caching
    Minimize redirects (orange) cites my avatar? dont know where its getting this from

    Has anybody had these problems? and is 94/100 a good enough score to have?

    I've got a similar set-up to you and I've found my limit is 94 as well, I think after that it's definitely a case of diminishing returns.

    But yes check pingdom and look at the slowest loading components. I've also started optimising my inner pages as although my homepage is at 94 a lot of others are quite a bit lower.

    I'm not sure but i believe i have read somewhere recently that there is a duplicate content matter with some CDN. Your pages may be indexed several times because of it. To be confirmed though.


    About JS defer, it is just a mention to add like the following :

    <script type="text/javascript" defer="defer">

    You can also try with Yslow plugin which gives you more input on your loading time.
