Hi everyone,

So ive just seen that my plugin health of my site has gone from 100% to 75%. I have removed a plugin which i had not yet used so its now 90% is this ok to run on it like that or should i try to get it back to 100%?

Check it up here. Just do my test result is poor due to unoptimize photo and other reason. Need to do some cleaning up before going further.

I was just reading this today on Google Analytics. They say if you want to maintain speed and Google ranks on this, they say to have no more than 5 plug-ins. Now, I am sure some plug-ins create more of a load than others but I think if you kept the number at about 5 you should be ok. Does anyone know if there's a way to test the speed at which your site loads and what is acceptable?

It really does depend on various factors, mainly being the speed of the server and the load any individual plugin puts on your site. I have well over 100 plugins all running simultaneously, without too many issues.

You can check individual plugins by installing yet another one called P3 https://wordpress.org/plugins/p3-profiler/ which will identity any resource hogs.

Great question. My site has 8 plugins and I can't get rid of any of them. I just have to live with the fact that my site health will never be 100% but to me that is not the most important thing. What maters more is that my readers like what they get when visiting my site.

Don't really let that be a bother, it's just a gauge. My plugin tab is at 0%, but thanks to the new site speed tool here at WA, my site is still moving fast. Yes, it is good to try and keep it to a minimum, but whatever you need to help run your site, use it :) Hope this helps out.

It's not the number of plugins but the load any specific plugin puts on the site. You can check individual plugins by installing yet another one called P3 https://wordpress.org/plugins/p3-profiler/ which will identity any resource hogs. :)
