How to improve site performance/PageSpeed?

Apart from optimizing images, what could be done to improve both perfomance and PageSpeed score for my site?

    Hello aneesh
    As mentioned by Adam in chat, the primary issue appears to be with the scaled images from imgur.com inside the post. You can try updating the link for those images to serve smaller thumbnails size by appending one of these letters to the original url:

    s = Small Square (90×90)
    b = Big Square (160×160)
    t = Small Thumbnail (160×160)
    m = Thumbnail (320×320)
    l = Thumbnail (640×640)
    h = Thumbnail (1024×1024)

    The other issue is about render blocking and non-minified resources(CSS, JavaScript). You can activate Hummingbird minification and it should automatically take care of minifying them.

    In some cases you might still get render blocking issue with some resources, if that happens you can enable advanced minification option under Hummingbird > Minification

    and try to defer some of the script to help improve load speed

    An important note about deferring, some themes do not support that for all resources and tends to cause styling issues on the front page. So be sure to backup before playing with the advanced minification options.
