Recently, my sites score completely dropped in site optimization/speed in the Google Adsense rating system. When using Google PageSpeed Insights it tells me quite a few things. One being to leverage browser caching. I went into my .htaccess file and added this bit of code.
After adding this code to my .htaccess file I retested my website and saw that it is now asking me to leverage a bunch of jquery plugins. Which I might add were not there prior to adding the code to the .htaccess.
Google is also asking me to minify my CSS, HTML, and JS. Well, I downloaded a Wordpress plugin called Better Wordpress Minify, which is set to automatically minify HTML, CSS, and JS. After installing the plugin and retesting through Google Pagespeed I noticed that it is still asking me to minify a couple of things. Its asking me to minify the customscript.js in my theme, and wants me to minify the HTML of my homepage.
Google also asked me to compress my website so I downloaded WP HTTP Compression which seemed to compress almost everything except for two files: modernizr.min.js, and customscript.js.
I know this is a lot of information to take in, and I am probably asking for a lot, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
