I attempted to replicate the 100 score one site claimed to get on Google PageSpeed Insights.
I couldn’t do it – even with an empty post.
And, the optimization techniques they used resulted in:
- a slower load speed
- riskier methods
- dealing with code
Then I tested a real-world post full of:
- images in the content
- images in the sidebar
- social follow buttons
- social share buttons
You know, the real stuff all of us have on our sites.
