Pre Installation Advice

I wanted to share what I am doing now and see what can/should be deleted, changed or kept to help my website performance. I am not very savvy about these tings and wanted some advice before I get in trouble by possible loading conflicting resources from wpmudev.

Cloudflare - with Rail Gun, Polish, Mirage, and Lazy Loading via DreamHost
WP Super Cache
Yoast SEO
Jetpack - Tiled Gallery and Site Stats only
Plus several cosmetic and function plugins.

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Jeff , I hope you are doing well!

    As far as I know Yoast SEO plugin requires a lot of site's resources to run. You can try the SmartCrawl SEO to setup good SEO.

    To test the plugins' load time and compared how each plugin is affecting your site's performance with the P3 Profiler plugin.

    You can improve the site's performance with the Hummingbird plugin. Hummingbird scanning the site with Page Speed Insights tool and provide performance report and what and how these can be improved. Plus, it offers GZIP Compression, Minification, Browser Caching and Uptime Monitoring.

    Run the scan on your site and follow the directions.

    Let me know if you have any further questions!

    Kind regards,
