    My client is on a WP site and has awful PageSpeed and YScore.
    It has been his main concern for a long time and I would like to make it better. I am willing to hire someone to fix these issues if I can not do them myself. So if you have any suggestions for someone that can hop in and fix these for me, I would love a referral.

    On his page speed his issues are:

    Defer parsing of JavaScript

    Combine images using CSS sprites

    Leverage browser caching

    Minify JavaScript

    His YScore issues are:

    Add Expires headers

    Make fewer HTTP requests

    Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)

    Use cookie-free domains

    Reduce DNS lookups

    I use 51Blocks for all my development stuff. I get my clients to host with them and then they fix all the site speed issues for free and include an https certificate too.

    The owner’s email is michael@51blocks.com. Let him know I sent you and he should give you a good deal 🙂

    Hi Andrea,

    We noticed MASSIVE speed improvements by moving WordPress hosting to WP Engine. Speed scores went through the roof.

    In addition, our in-house WordPress developer has done optimization projects for many sites and could fix up many of the issues that are reported on the tools. We can do this for $400.

    There are also quite a few services out there that are specifically for wordpress speed optimization. I haven’t tried them, so I can’t vouch for them. Here’s one:

    I HAVE hired Wp-Fix-It for a malware cleanup, and they did a good job on that, so they might be a good reasonably priced option for speed improvements.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much Joy and Darren.
    I am reaching out the client to see what he wants to do.
    I really really appreciate both choices. I would like to do both, but I need to ask him what he wants to do.
