Dumb SEO Questions

I am worried about page speed.

I have a question about website speed:

My site is less than a month old but I have been very busy adding content and now I am worried about page speed because I know it`s important. My Google PageInsights scores are 73 for mobile and 87 for desktop. The scores from GTmetrix are 95 for page speed and 87 for YSlow. Of course I have W3 Total cache installed but I don`t know if it`s optimally setup. Are these scores good? should I be worried? And is there a website or information on the web that I can get some tips from? Any advice is greatly appreciated! I do not have a CDN at the moment because I just started and not much traffic as of yet.

Thanks!
Christopher?

  • Jann Grond: It's pretty good already, did you fix all the things from the pagespeed insights?
  • K Neeraj Kayastha: You know 100 is always good, actually it's the best. But you don't achieve 100 ever. And all websites have some need and you don't make them for machine or optimiser tools. You should plan a website for human and their needs. And don't worry your score is good. But there is always way of improvement.
  • Christopher Hale: I tried to by messing around with W3 Total Cache plugin but I think I am not doing something right because some of the scores went down when I did. Not real sure what I am doing with optimizing that plugin. 
  • Christopher Hale: Thanks for the feedback! 
  • Dave Elliott: Tjose scores are pretty good. If there are a few images that can have their size reduced then go for it but i wouldn't do anything major.
