I’m a novice so I use Google Page Speed Score etc heavily… helps me benchmark my build and plugin quality so I can maximise the speed of my site and pages.. I use a lot of video so I use Bunny CDN… My Google scores had a lot of negative marks and I was stuck around 65 /100 with page load times around 1 second and 1 – 2 meg pages.. I plugged in ImageEngine and with the amazing help of Vysakh my scores went through the roof! 96 / 100, page speeds of 500ms! and page sizes of 370Kb!!! I mean what is not to like??? Would I recommend this 100% – 5 STARS! Thank you to Vysakh for setting it up and his Master Class on Google Chromes Inspect and Network tools 🙂
