WordPress Speed and Optimization Live Project Step by Step on GoDaddy Hosted Site with GTMetrix, Google Pagespeed and Lighthouse Audit Standards.

In Task # 12 of Three Months Free WordPress Training for #WPSpartans300 we discussed main terms as under:

6- Time to Interactive (TTI)
7- Render Blocking JS/ CSS

Then we audited a live site https://www.farooqisonline.com

As per the analysis report, we tried to fix each part step by step. First of all, we manually added GZIP Compression code in .htaccess (GoDaddy Live Server). Then we installed a Plugin Performance Lite. We configured it.

We also created cloudflare account. Learnt how to change nameservers on godaddy. We used cloudflare nameservers.
We also learnt how to install easy really simply ssl plugin from WordPress Repository.
We also used Short Pixels Plugin to optimize images.

The GTMetrix score was raised from 29 to 79. Great improvement. We’ll continue experimenting with live site in our next tasks.
