    1. build your website in a simple and easy way for users
    2. U could optimize your website speed,u can use some image compress website to help u
    3. less plugins(if u r only running blogs it would be better without any plugins or linked apps)

    Always compress the size of every image while uploading to website. Image plays a great role in website slowing issue.
    Thankyou

    1. Defer Js files of live chat, popups, video embed.

    2. Specify image aspect ratios

    3. Preload web fonts [Like Google fonts]

    4. Use 'SVG' image for the first-ever image that appears [Like hero images]

    5. Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) [You can use Cloudflare

    6. Use a better webserver

    7. Effectively use caching

    8. Lazy load images

    1. Run a WordPress speed test
    2. Configure a CDN
    3. Limit comments per page
    4. Remove unused media/plugins/themes
    5. Minify CSS, HTML, JavaScript
    6. Clean up your database
    7. Upgrade Your PHP Version
    8. Optimize images
    9. Enable gzip compression

    Hi, I see that many people have replied to your post and the answers are almost similar. I will go one step further and will tell you the name of the theme you should use in your website. It is Generatepress. I am using the same theme in my website. It is the most light weight and less complex theme that anybody can use in their wordpress website.

    Where did you find that theme getting low scores? Please search a bit more and you will find good and honest reviews too. Whats more, I am using that theme myself and I am very much satisfied with the performance. Earlier I was using theme from MyThemeShop and that theme was loading a bit slow. It also had an RSS feed issue. But when I switched to GeneratePress, the speed of the site has increased and the RSS feed issue was also resolved. Please note that the hosting and set of plugins was same which I switched the themes.

    That's true. 70 out of 100 is still a good number. Earlier it was less than 50 with my old theme. :)

    By the way when I ran the test it came 73 which is again better :D
