Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » AO with GeneratePress and nginx

  • Hi Frank

    My mobile speed score on Google PageSpeed is quite low.

    I have read through a couple posts here already and checked this page from GeneratePress as well – no luck yet.

    My goal is to get a much higher score on Google PageSpeed for mobile. I have taken many steps already, but none of them seem to work the way I would like to.

    The website is using an nginx server. This is why my webhoster does not recommend using Autoptimize.

    Very glad for any helpful tips you can give me here in order to make use of this great plugin. Also have PWA in use, however the normal mobile version should perform better if possible.

    Thanks a lot

    Well, I use nginx + AO myself, don’t see how one would exclude the other really 😉

    Most important things would be
    * to activate JS optimization as that will lead to almost all JS being optimized & loaded late (deferred, so not render-blocking).
    * to activate CSS optimization, enable “inline & defer CSS” and to either provide “above the fold CSS” yourself (which will be applied to all pages) or to use the automatic “critical CSS power-up” which will create rules with specific “above the fold CSS” for each page (but which requires an account at That will make the CSS non-render-blocking and should greatly improve the first paint times.

    Next to that some (further) image optmization might help too, but that not the first concern here.

    Let me know how it goes! 🙂

    Thank you Frank!
