    Good luck!

    Hi @prokingfishing, I have checked your website performance on Google page speed, and it’s quite good, I mean 99 on desktop and 77 on mobile

    To optimize speed even more, you can remove this JS if you are not using or try to minify using WP rocket plugin. It’s the only JS thing I can see to improve the speed.

    Suggestion: You can also use the Smush plugin to compress images if you are not using it.

    Hey there,

    I totally understand your frustration with WP Rocket not delivering the speed improvements you expected. It can be quite disappointing when you invest in a performance optimization tool and don’t see the desired results on your website. But no worries, let’s dive into some troubleshooting steps together to get to the bottom of this!

    First off, clearing your cache is a simple yet effective way to start. Sometimes, old cached data can interfere with the new caching system after installing WP Rocket. Just head over to the WP Rocket settings and give that cache a good clearing to ensure a fresh start.

    Next, let’s double-check your configuration settings. Make sure you’ve got everything set up properly in WP Rocket and that all the necessary options are enabled, tailored to your website’s specific requirements.

    Oh, and speaking of speed, those large image files can be real speed killers! A handy trick is to optimize your images using WP Rocket’s image optimization features or other optimization plugins. You’ll be amazed at how much faster your site can load with the right image sizes.

    By the way, did you enable the options to minify and combine CSS and JavaScript files? If not, flipping those switches could give your site a nice little boost in loading times.

    Here’s another thing to consider: conflicts with other plugins. Sometimes, WP Rocket might not play nice with certain plugins on your site. To rule this out, try temporarily deactivating other caching or performance-related plugins and see if that helps speed things up.

    Oh, and don’t forget to check your server response time. Even the best optimizations won’t make much difference if your server is dragging its feet. Tools like Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix can give you an idea of your server’s response time, and if it’s not up to snuff, it might be time to think about upgrading your hosting plan.

    Now, onto something often overlooked – database optimization. It’s like a bit of spring cleaning for your website’s database, and it can really improve your site’s efficiency. You can try WP Rocket’s Database Cleanup feature or the WP-Optimize plugin for this job.

    Let’s talk about Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) too. They’re superheroes for speeding up websites. If you’ve got a CDN, make sure it’s set up properly in WP Rocket. This will distribute your content across multiple servers worldwide, making your website snappy for users everywhere.

    And hey, any external scripts or assets on your site? They might be slowing things down too. Take a look at embedded videos or third-party widgets, and if they’re causing delays, see if you can minimize their impact or find better alternatives.

    Remember, website optimization is an ongoing process, not a one-and-done deal. So, keep testing your website speed after each change you make. Tools like Google PageSpeed Insights, GTmetrix, or Pingdom Tools can be your best buddies in this journey.

    I hope these tips help you whip your website into shape with WP Rocket. And if you’ve got any more questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to ask. Good luck getting your site blazing fast!

    Warm regards,
    Pro WordPress Expert
