    The results pages you linked tell you what needs to happen. Some aspects are difficult to to address in WP. Much of the complaints seem to relate to scripts. Are they all needed on the home page? WP themes and plugins tend to enqueue their scripts on all pages, needed or not, since it’s often difficult for a plugin to know where it’s needed. It’s possible to dequeue scripts where not needed, or at least load them later in the footer if not needed early. It’ll require investigating how each script is enqueued and adding custom code to dequeue where appropriate.

    An optimzation plugin could help by combining multiple script and CSS files and minimizing them. A caching plugin can help with overall response times.

    Part of the problem is simply the size and complexity of the page. The entire page design would need to be re-evaluated to optimize for mobile visitors. Sometimes improvements are just not possible due to other constraints, such as client demands.
