  • Charles Whitworth: Jetpack can be good for lazy loading
  • Charles Whitworth: See if you can install this too: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/module/
  • Sean Clarke: Find a host that uses PHP 7.*
  • Wissam Dandan: Wp rocket is good
  • Lisa Brown: I use a combination of WP Rocket, Autoptimize, Cloudflare. What really moved the needle was switching to LiquidWeb`s WordPress hosting, the site had been on an older VPS. That combination gave 50% to 85% improvements depending on the page.
  • E Dieter Martin: AMP plugin would work for blog and news style sites.
  • E Dieter Martin: Other than that a careful review of the site is in order. Google`s Pagespeed Insights can be helpful but some WordPress oddities make it hard to find the real culprits in the sea of messages.
