How to Optimize Your PSI Score

In a recent Reddit thread, Google’s John Mueller offered some tips to optimize your score on Google’s PageSpeed Insights (PSI) tool, for good SEO:

  1. Temporarily place individual page elements—like images, scripts, or code—on a non-indexed page to isolate and test their effect on page speed. Then, optimize and make changes to your live page.
  2. If your optimized live page doesn’t show improvement, other factors that you didn’t isolate are limiting your score. In this case, make a copy of the live page, remove the elements you optimized in step 1, and test.
  3. If page speed is reasonable already, you may not need to do extensive work. Ultimately, changes should be incremental and strategic.
