Need help with boosting Google PageSpeed Insights

    My current score on PageInsights is a woeful 69 on mobile and 83 on the desktop. I wanted to ask advice of those here at XF as to any changes I can make to improve these numbers.

    I should note that my mobile template is a child of the desktop template. I used a child, so that I can avoid full size banners rendering incorrectly on mobile.

    Here's my config:

    config['db']['host'] = 'localhost';
    $config['db']['port'] = '3306';
    $config['db']['username'] = 'mydb';
    $config['db']['password'] = '**********';
    $config['db']['dbname'] = 'mydb_xf';
    $config['debug'] = false;
    $config['cache']['backend'] = 'Apc';
    $config['javaScriptUrl'] = 'http://static.mysite.org/js';
    $config['externalDataUrl'] = 'http://static.mysite.org/data';

    I get 70/100 and 88/100, those are very high numbers for a dynamically generated page.
    Take a look at this Google page, I case of doubt.

    The biggest and only red alarm I have on running this is "Eliminate render-blocking Javascript and CSS in the above-the fold content"

    Is there anything we can do about it? @digitalpoint

    Truthfully, I think people worry a little too much about having a higher score. Personally, I don't bother moving the JS or CSS to the end.
    p4guru and Floren like this.
