Initial score of Ler Travel Diary

Ler Travel Diary has been my passive income source for quite some time. As we moved into new era, less visitors read blog. From Fengshui perspective, we are entering the nine realm 九运. That mean more users prefer to use visual for entertainment. Younger generation prefer YouTube or video on demand rather than word-based blog or article. Nevertheless, I still prefer to use WordPress and this domain name to share my experience and journey. Therefore, here are some tips to increase PageSpeed Insight Score.

#1 Remove unnecessary / inactive plugins

If you like to research or search around wordpress related article, You will accidentally install or try out a number of plugins. Remove all the inactive plugins can increase the pageSpeed Insight for around 40%

When I upload any images, I prefer to use PhotoScapeX to reduce image size. Usually the photo / images I shot are around 3K MB. After I reduced the photo size to 800 x 600 or 600 x 400, it can reduce the images size to less than 300 KB. It is best to upload images less than 200 KB.

#5 Join / Discuss with Expert on WordPress Group

I often read or discuss with all the experts on WordPress group. Their expertise really help me a lot.
