I have been struggling with this all week. My PageSpeed Insights are not good. Mobile/Desktop are 83/81 respectively.

I have loaded TinyPNG and re-optimized my images. I

These look like plugins that you are using, which sometimes you will not be able to monetize them any further. In the first example, it looks like a mailchimp form that is needing compression. That is likely not optimized on their end.

Do know that if you use SiteContent for your images and publish your content through SiteContent to your website, all images that you use are going to be compressed using our state of the art compression platform (which will work brilliantly well for Google and other search engines in terms of load speeds).

As for plugins and widgets, sometimes there is nothing you can do about these and this appears to be the case. If your PageSpeed is good, I would not panic.

Thanks, Kyle.

It had crossed my mind that it was a plug-in issue. Don't like it, but at least I know it's not something I am doing wrong.

As for SiteContent, I have been using it for my images, since it was released. It's great. I misunderstood about the compression.

Does this mean if you use the images through SiteContent and add any others to your SiteContent image library that we do not need to use any image compression plug-in?

Hi, everyone.

When researching recommended options for my website. I have noticed several different recommendations saying that RSS should be an option on your site.

I use it. The important thing is to make sure that in the WP feed settings, you select the option to only show the "summary" of your posts in the feed, not the full content. Otherwise subscribers have no incentive to actually visit your website. ~Jude

Thanks. That is a very good point. I'll make sure I check that box.

Its advantage will be sending feeds or developments from your site to your subscribers, I am not using it but I will like to explore that. Just try coz its not harmful.

I agree and I will probably set it up. I was curious what others thought about it.

Thanks...something for me to look into...Also

I have it set up. I do not use RSS feeds but I know several people that do. It can not hurt.

Thanks. I was thinking the same thing. Just did want my site to appear old-fashioned if RSS was considered an old person tool.

The use of RSS dropped significantly among "normal" people when Google Reader was canceled in 2013.
People now get their news feed via social media.
It is still in use, however, but it is a bit of a "nerdy" thing to follow an RSS update.
But since it's no big deal to set up, it's no harm in having it on your site.

This is kinda what I was thinking. I will probably set it up then. It can't hurt.

Indeed they are. Here's the latest news. http://www.voidcan.org/top-ten-rss-feed-directories/

Thanks, Mike.

You always have the links we need. It amazes me how much info you seem to have at your fingertips.
