Rather than relying on human work and coding expertise (that not everyone has), it’s much easier to use a plugin to address these kinds of problems. While it’s generally a good idea to avoid using plugins until absolutely necessary, this is one time when we think it’s beneficial to do so.
To solve this issue, you can use a plugin called Autoptimize. Free to use with default settings, it also has premium-priced upgrades for further customization options.
If you’re interested in diving deeper, our encyclopedia contains all the latest information and our suggestions. The plugins we suggest may change from time to time, but rest assured that you’ll never be without a viable choice.
To stay current on the best plugins, you should grab what we’re recommending right now. If you browse to the plugin’s settings after installation, you should see a screen where some fundamental choices will be presented. Try whatever seems the simplest first.
There is a good reason: first, we check the absolute necessities because over-analyzing the situation and activating every possible setting at once is a surefire recipe for disaster. Instead, go back to the basics, conduct your audit again, and rectify the issues identified by evisio.
And if you do receive some kind of note or caution, that’s fine too, as in this instance there are occasions when prioritizing one item above another is necessary. If you first fix the most serious problems holding your score back, you can experiment with fine-tuning other aspects of your profile. Checking these additional boxes is generally harmless, but when doing so, you should restart your audit because they can trigger even more severe issues than the ones you want to fix.
This isn’t a foolproof strategy, but it’s worthwhile to try, as it can help you fix issues that were troubling your pages.
