Understanding Google's Page Speed Insights
Troubleshooting on Slow website
Further to discussion at: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/everything-wordpress/optimal-number-of-plugins-to-have/comment/20007811
You are gonna regret checking up on me regarding this, YanFellow!!! hehe :)
I'm kind of grappling with this blindly ...
I disabled some plugins, it didn't make a difference.
So checked under Site Details: one hour, most are green; the next hour, everything's all amber and red!
I clicked through to read Google's Page Speed insights:
... and gave a list of links. They're all Media Net links! Should I remove the verification code in the headers?
(2) It says "Optimise CSS Delivery of the following:
https://fonts.googleapis.com/…eesatz%3A200%2C300%2C400%2C700&ver=4.9.8" ... I don't even know what this is!
(3) It says "Optimise images":
They're all Media Net ads again!
And I've scanned them already with EWWW image optimiser. It won't optimise more unless I upgrade!
(4) It says "Leverage browser caching"
... most of the links cited were again Media Net! And I don't know how to leverage browser caching!
(5) Reduce amount of HTML ... above-the-fold
It says "Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content."

I am currently spending my time trawling WA's training blogs for step-by-step solutions to the above.
If there are none available, may I please beg for short mini-trainings (step-by-step) for resolving each of the above please?
The trainers here at WA have my full admiration and respect for being able to wade through all this stuff and make sense of it all.
I think I need a shot of vodka now ... I'm taking a break and will be back to tackle it all anew.
I apologise for the lengthy reply, YanFellow!
