    Hi cornelius_butler,

    Thank you for contacting WPMU Support!

    Lighthouse is another site auditing tool that Google offers along with their other well known tool Google PageSpeed Insights. This tool is useful as it provides site owners with a different perspective with the real-world metrics they provide.

    Lighthouse is a useful tool, but like all informative sources, it would be best to have "more than one reference" and use a range of performance tools such as Google Page Insights or Pingdom tools. To help you improve your load performance, we recommend you to have the Smush Pro plugin for optimizing images, and the Hummingbird plugin to enhance your site's performance.

    Both of these tools combined will help you increase your site score and provide better performance for your site on the long run.

    Feel free to check out our guides for both plugins:

    Please let me know if you have any additional concerns and I'll be more than glad to assist.

    Best,
    Jonathan S
