Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Drop in PageSpeed Score after Update

  • Resolved spiderdev91


    After updating the Autoptimize plugin to version 2.8.4, the PageSpeed score for my client’s website dropped from C (77%) to E (59%). The YSlow score stayed the same at A (93%). As of today, the site is still getting the same PageSpeed score of E (59%). Nothing else has changed on the site. Do you know what could have caused this sudden drop in the score?

    2.8.4 was merely a security fix spiderdev91 (for potential issues in the settings-pages) and has no impact on how a site is optimized. The drop in pagespeed score must be a coincidence.

    Best way forwards would be to compare the detailed results (not the overall scores, those are just there to get your attention) to see what happened (was it a longer “time to first byte” or a higher “first contentful paint” or did one of the “core web vitals” (LCP, CLS, TBT) get worse?

    hope this clarifies,
