The Google PageSpeed Insights Code Has Been Cracked

Last Update: April 10, 2017

Website speed is becoming more important as time goes on. As sites get more sophisticated, more database driven, use higher quality graphics, videos and other media, and as people use platforms like Wordpress that are fairly intensive in terms of loading speeds, speed suffers. As a result, Google PageSpeed Results tends to suffer as well.

I want to tell you today that we have been working diligently behind the scenes to fix all of these website speed issues through some sophisticated technology that we have spent the last 9 months works on.

When you go over and test your site on Google PageSpeed Insights, conventionally speaking a score of 70+ is pretty good. Any SiteSpeed over 80 is excellent, and anything that cracks into the 90s is honestly unheard-of.

The website speed of your site is definitely one of the ranking factors in Google. Your speed impacts the user experience and if you have a slow loading website, you are going to move down the SERPs in Google and other search engines.

Well, I want to show you some evidence of what we are working on in terms of SiteSpeed. This is going to blow your mind and our new technology is being run as a beta on a few websites, one of them being my WaysToAvoidScams website.

Here is the page on my website that I tested.

WaysToAvoidScamsOnline.com Google PageSpeed Test

Have a Peek of these Mobile and Desktop PageSpeeds.

A few stats and details you should know about this particular post. It is far from being a normal post, it is HUGE.

  • This is a wordpress website.
  • There are 7 plugins that are actively running on my website. There are 69,783 words on this page.
  • There are 651 comments on this page (all load with no paging)
  • There are 661 images within this post.
  • The proof is in the puddin’ though.

This page, which on paper would seem rather intensive of server resources, achieved an incredible 96/100 PageSpeed rating for mobile and a 97/100 PageSpeed rating for desktop. These numbers are NOT normal, but are going to be very much normal for folks hosting their websites on the state of the art platform at Wealthy Affiliate... very soon.

Google Page Speed Ranking Factors

Google is looking at several aspects of your website when determining the overall SPEED criteria. As the world moves mobile and as we as users demand more and more efficiency, there is absolutely no reason that a page should load slow enough to annoy an end user.

That is Google's logic anyways and that is why they have moved to a state where they provide you feedback with your websites pagespeed and the overall performance based on their metrics that make it different.

  • Image Optimization. Large image files can truly slow down your website. If you are not already using image compression on your website, I highly recommend that you install a plugin that will help you with this. There are two that are favor over the rest, these are EWWW Image Optimizer and Smush It. But high quality plugins for image compression which will make your website pages load a lot faster.

  • Proper Javascript Optimization. If your JS, something that is native to Wordpress, loads above the fold of your page or in your header, it can slow down your sites performance, in particular on mobile devices. Google does not like this and natively to Wordpress, it is very difficult to manage this in a way that can improve your overall website speed. There are solution for this though that we have uncovered and you can see them from our preliminary tests (they have been completely resolved).


  • Caching. Ideally you have proper caching on your website. There are many plugins that you can use within Wordpress for this, but they are all very much ineffective when it comes to proper caching. What caching does is it serves your website in HTML for your audience so that it loads instantly (as WP sites are database intensive to load the page from the database every time). This optimizes your website drastically, but plugins are not the solution for this. Something that is done more on the server (hosting) level has a much more profound impact versus using a plugin.

  • Website/Server Load Speeds. If your site is loading slow, not only will you get an abundane of other issues, but if your overall server response time is slow, then you are going to get notified (and sometimes the PageSpeed Insights test won't even run).

  • Mobile vs. Desktop. There are different things that Google looks for on Mobile and Desktop. Caching is very important within both, as is your website being responsive in nature (which almost all wordpress websites are by default these days). You ideally want high Mobile and Desktop ratings, if you are not achieving over 80 in both areas your website needs some work.

Other Speed Tests Are USELESS.

I know that many people here use PingDom and GTMetrix (along with various other tools) to test your website performance. Although these tools may seem like they are doing a lot of work, they are very intensive on your website (can actually) and many major networks have blocked sites like GTMetrix from even running on them.

So don't use them. Don't trust their data. And don't base any decision or the actual website speed of your site on the data that these tools provide. It is completely erroneous at the best of times.

Another thing is that these tools can put enormous "load" on your website, even potentially taking it down altogether. Because of this, many hosting companies will completely block these services from being used.

The HUMAN Website Speed Test.

Many people get so fixated on speed tests and their analysis of a websites performance through tools, which are analyzing things that may be loading in the background, but it is not visible to the human eye. One of the best tests you can do with your website is to visit it yourself.

The quicker your website loads, the better the experience for your audience. Many analyses have indicated that if your website loads in 4 seconds or greater, you lose 25%+ of your traffic right away (they simply leave).

If you can keep it to under 2 seconds, this goes down to less than 10. Under 1 second, abandonment is no existent, other than robots and click monkeys that may be visiting your sites.

If you visit my site and navigate through the pages, you will see how quickly it "snaps" in terms of the page load speeds. This is because I am running some new technology behind the scenes (and something that we have rolling out soon), that properly handles speeds and properly caches websites on a hardware level.

Why hardware level though? Don't plugins (which rely on the software level coding) work well?

Wordpress Website Caching Plugins Aren't the Best.

Caching is important. Caching plugins are not the solution to the caching problem though because their reliance on the Wordpress architecture to operate (which is natively slow). Some caching plugins out there work fairly well, but any plugin that is worthwhile is typically a paid service or a paid upgrade ($39+ per website) and they are still operating on the "software" level which is much slower than operating on a server (hardware) level.

And for it to be effective, they need to work with an external service like Cloud Fare which is intended to absorb DDOS and malignant attacks on your website where traffic is driven to your website (automatically) in attempt to take down your site.

If you have a caching plugin alone, this will not prevent this from happening as this needs to take place on the "hardware" level, not software.

Technology Can Make Your Life as a Marketer Better.

Imagine not having to worry about any of this stuff. You set up your website and it just works. It meets Google's highest standards in terms of PageSpeed Insights and your websites not only load lightening quick for your audience (the main goal), but they also achieve high ratings in PageSpeed. As in, 90+.

That is going to be your new reality very soon, it is the reality that I get to experience on all my sites because I am one of the lucky folks that have been selected for Beta testing with a brand new SPEED platform that is coming to the SiteRubix website and hosting network. It's brilliant. I have many pages that are getting 99 on both mobile and desktop, some even reaching 100/100 score.

Scores like that cannot be beat.

Not to mention load times and the navigation experience to the visitors on your website. When someone visits your website, they content should load immediately. As per mentioned earlier, if someone is having to wait over 2 seconds for a page to load, the fall off rate is very high. If they wait over 4 seconds, you are losing a huge chunk of your potential audience (and revenue).

Website speed matters. It will lead to a better overall experience, better rankings in Google, more traffic and more revenue.

We are onto some significant and game changing speed updates within the hosting network here at Wealthy Affiliate. Stuff that is simply not being done in the hosting world...anywhere. Big things are stirring under the engine at Wealthy Affiliate.

I've just disabled sitespeed. It's had an awesome impact on the speed of my site, but only for the "http" version. As for "https" - this received a poor amber rating for both mobile and Desktop.

In addition, the feature has had no positive impact on rankings or traffic. It seems like organic traffic dips when activated. Even only having 4 active plugins and using Smush, it makes no difference.

Support have been helpful, but I've not benefitted from sitespeed so far.

I take it, improvements are still being made to sitespeed?

It will only have positive impacts on rankings as your site is properly cached.

I think it may also be the fact that there are too many images on my site overall. So now in the process of deleting some from posts and media. Hopefully, this will also aid SiteSpeed.

This is great news for all members at WA. And the way things moving forwards at WA is enormously impressive! Thanks, Kyle!

I did the test and luckily it is in "orange" level. It also makes me alert to fix certain issues that can be manually done.

So good about this test is to remind us to always double check time and time again all the settings to ensure any change we make is updated through the web.

Well, I'm looking forward to this Kyle, because I tested my website and it only gets 60%. I did add the image plugin but that didn't seem to help much.
The analysis says:
...Your page has 2 blocking script resources and 3 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page...

This sounds awesome. However, I just launched a very important E-Commerce website and speed is suffering. I have been using WordPress Fastest Cache and Woo Speed Drain Repair. They were working at first, but not so much anymore. I have huge caches of social, google, and bing traffic to send to the website and am setting up social developer apps, but speed is a major issue. Is what you're talking about similar to A2 Swift or Turbo? Anyway, is there a possibility that I can benefit from this now, or is there a way to benefit from this somehow now. Or do you have any suggestions? Thank you Kyle!

Would upgrading to WordPress Fastest Cache Premium Help. Also, I am using a good amount of plugins, but for Woo and I really don't have a choice. Any suggestions?
Reply
Kyle Premium
WP Fastest Cache is not all that efficient as it operates on a plugin level, which is impossible to offer the same level of caching that SiteSpeed offers.

We have just rolled out this platform, ideally you would be running your hosting here at WA, but if you cannot then you will likely have to settle for these mid tier plugins that will do an OK job at best of caching and speed efficiencies.

Hey Kyle,

The site I have hosted here is showing 84/100 in yellow for desktop only, though I need to be concerned.
https://useyourpassion.com/pagespeed-results-site-hosted-on-WA

Yet, my site that is hosted in Toronto and using the exact same theme and plugins shows 87/100 in green for desktop only.
https://useyourpassion.com/pagespeed-results-site-hosted-in-Toronto

Both sites have been fully optimized using the same cache plugin too.

Neither site passes Mobile ... yet GTmetrix offers a different view

Site hosted here: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/useyourpassion.com/YE3OjmBO

Site hosted in Toronto: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.eparrs.com/S0dMsFIm

What's up with the differences? Is it where the hosting servers are located that's causing such a slow down of my site that is hosted here?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your site NOT hosted at WA got:

63 mobile, 87 desktop

Your site hosted WITH WA got:

74 mobile, 92 desktop

And your site with WA is also on https, which is conventionally a tiny bit slower than http. So it is definitely much improved.

Also the issue mobile aspects on mobile have to do directly with the Luxe theme that you are using on those sites.

Another member mentioned yesterday about PageSpeed changes within minutes of his checking. When I checked my two site again ... well ... see my screen print below.

Am guessing PageSpeed decided the Luxe theme on the site hosted here is okay on mobile now. LOL, you must have used mobile to view it. LOL. Who knows ... I prefer GTmetrix.
Reply

Yeah, the problem with GTMetrix is that it is not all that useful, it relies on load times of every item on your page and produces useless data. Most major hosts block sites like GTMetrix from even hitting them.

Have optimized my sites sooooo well now that I'm looking forward to that Beta testing tool you're using, to speed my sites up even faster.

Since fully optimizing, one of my sites went from about 1,200 visitors a month to over 22,000 monthly ... and CLIMBING. So, improving on THAT is going to be ... well, YIPPPPEEEE!

Ummm... I got a score of 78 out of 100 and mobile was 32 out of 100. Oh dear...

I went to check on how to fix but I don't understand even the first part...

Consider Fixing:
Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
Your page has 1 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

Sounds like Greek...How do i defer or asyncrhonouly load blocking resources...??

@mbouteiller The first thing you have listed there is going to be taken care of by the hardware cache upgrade. If your list includes optimizing images, that's something you can do. I'd recommend EWWW Image Optimizer plug-in. You can tell it to back-fix all of the images associated with your WordPress website.

I then read the rest of the post and did the check yourself how quickly your site loads. I checked my site and it loads in 2 seconds checked every page and they all load within 2 or 3 seconds. I feel better now. Thanks Kyle for all the behind the scenes things you do for our sites.

This is welcome news, as I've had major speed issues with a couple of my sites that only a caching plugin has been able to resolve - or at least get things down to an acceptable level. Without it, my sites were consistently reporting load times on Speedtest of 8secs+. Which was ridiculous and the subject of quite a few frustrated support tickets with SiteRubix.

If you're saying you're about to introduce something that will negate the need for a caching plugin...well I await with baited breath to see what's coming.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Caching plugins are only capable of so much, they still require use of Apache (server side) although most of the good ones will be able to cache a version of your page that doesn't require the entire framework of Wordpress to load (which can drastically slow things down).

Speedtests are meaningless by the way, most are inaccurate in terms of your "actual" load, so if you visit a page and it loads fast for you, then that is a fast page. Lots of websites will have many things loading behind the scenes so a full load can take a bit longer which is fine, but that is not visible to the human eye.

Speed issues are always caused by slow plugins, themes, or images. You are in good hands in terms of the power of the servers here at WA, it is a state of the art platform hosted on C3.large instances within Amazon, unheard of in the managed wordpress hosting space.

You can, of course delete it. Will it affect categories conversions from page to page? Not knowing what all the plugin does, I can't tell you for sure, but my guess would be that it would.

I suggest you test it on a free siterubix test site. If you don't have one, build one quickly, just basic, with 2 or 3 pages, install the plugin, Then delete the plugin and see if the conversions still works on the test site.

There is another matter I have a problem with. When I first signed up and bought my domain I gave the wrong name to my website. I have involved other members, but so far no one has come up with the solution on how to change it. I am sure you must know. Please help me out.

Ruth, once you buy a domain, which is the web address URL, it cannot be changed.

This is not a WA thing. All domain name registrars have this rule.

You can, however, change the Title of your website in WordPress > Appearance > Customize > Site Title.

Are you sure you need to change the domain name?

You can consider using the domain as a Testing Site for themes and plugins, and playing around with code, etc. Having a testing site is recommended and because you own the domain, you do not have limitations for plugin and theme testing.

You guys are always doing so much for us, we can hardly keep up!! But, as you know, it is greatly, greatly appreciated.

I hate it when sites take forever to load. I know that when sites are free and they make money from ad revenue that is the trade off and if we know that and we are prepared to wait for good quality content, then so be it. But at the other end of the scale their are some sites that have good selling magazines but their site is so jam packed with ads and links, I sometimes wonder if the page is EVER going to load!!
I'm sure you all know the type?

Responsive just means that it loads properly on a mobile device, that has nothing to do with the actual speed of your website on mobile.

Super, super awesome, Kyle!!! Doing practically anything, hardware vs. software, will quickly move hardware to the forefront. When you buy a pc or laptop, if you'll notice it will give you a cache size (128, 256, 512, 1024 megabytes, for example) and that cache is a piece of hardware on the motherboard and it will serve up data in what seems like a instant compared to a software-driven cache.

Coupling that with image and javascript optimization and suddenly it's mind-blowing!

To see/hear you guys about to put hardware caching into place on the WA host servers is nothing short of nuclear. Can't wait to read that it's implemented and at our disposal!!!

I know your question was directed to Kyle, but I can answer, in case he doesn't see it.

Above, Kyle said: "The plan is for next week...announcement will be made."

Thanks for sharing this wonderful record breaking news with us Kyle!

Just the news we needed to hear to allay our fears with the new Fact Checker that Google has brought out. Knowing that you've proven, tested and tried your new technology, proves it works and nothing can change that and it's NOT fake!

See my blog for more info:

Beware The Fact Checker In Google Is On The Loose!

Great news. I could never get the caching to improve, nor get rid of the Javascript problem. I've Smushed my images and that works really well. I use a database optimiser, and that seems to do a good job. But like you said, there are some things you can fix only at the server. Looking forward to the improvements.

Great news Kyle.

As you have already seen recently, my results on Pagespeed both my sites are in the green 99 and 99 and the second one managed to get a higher result from last time which is now 95 and 90 for mobile and desktop respectively.

Apart from the EWWW Image Optimizer which I already have are you able to let me know the other plugins you use on your site?

Would love to test them out so as to reduce the plugins I have.

At the moment I have 21 yet still retained this high score but If I can get the same results or close to without this number of plugins all the better.

Kudos to WA.

Yet again your excellent service you are giving us all here will continue to benefit not only our experience with the many learning materials available but also for improving the type of bread and butter which is our websites.

Wishing WA continued success which already is leaps and bounds above all others.
And like they say "There is more to come"

Thank you
Andre

Hi, Andre.

Please pardon me for butting in, but I was so impressed, I had to!

You have 21 plugins, yet manage to get those amazing scores?! That's astounding! Would you consider creating a training, to teach us how to do that?

I very much like the trainings you've already done: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/apache1/training I've bookmarked them and I gave a like to each.

I especially appreciated and left a question for you there.

Hi Sharon, thank you for the like here and always on the training you mentioned to which I have replied to your question.

As far as my plugins yes there are actually 22 I thought it was 21. It took a while to get there but as I mentioned in a reply to Kyle if I could reduce the number of plugins and get the same results that would be better.

Another aspect on pagespeed can also be dependent on the theme you have chosen as well.

I have two sites with a different theme and when I tried to use the same one on both and visa versa it didn't work out. Go figure

The theme I use with the higher score is Iconic one which I believe is the same theme Kyle uses.

But before you go changing themes it might be best to wait for this new support WA is bringing first and see how you go with that.

Wishing you great success going forward.
As Always
Namaste
Andre
