Been working on our new site this week that we went live with. Having some issues with Google Crawling. Google support says our site is slow. They point us to their Page Speed tool for our site. The mobile performance score is awful (while mobile usability is pretty good).
Here's a direct link to our site's home page PageSpeed
How do I tell DNN to minify Jquery?
Second, I've enabled httpcompression in the web.config, which helped a little. BUt how do I enable caching of some files like the .js files, the .css files, and the .jpg files. Those are teh biggest resources I can see on the site that are causing issues. Does someone have a web.config example on how to configure browser caching of those files?
Our Google Index isn't working because the site is too slow. I am sure a big part of it is our host (WinHost). YOu get what you pay for.
At the same time, if there are things I can do, like use minify Jquery, etc., and browser caching, or other elements that can speed up the performance, I want to do so. Just not sure how.
Google support says Google is having problems indexing the site cause it's too slow. That's not good at all. So what I am trying to do is optimize the configuration of the web server and of DNN, as well as optimize the site's HTML and JPGs to be as efficient as possible.
If after all that, the site still has a lousy pagespeed, I suppose I'll have to move to a different host. BUt I'd like to make sure that all the things that I can directly control, like using minified JQUERY/CSS, etc., are done first before I relocate.
Truthfully, as a user, I think it's a pretty good experience. But if Google won't index the page and thinks the speed is so low that they won't serve the results in the index / SERPs, then I'm in a whole lot of hurt. We followed google webmaster guidelines for building a site for our VISITORS, but at this point, google itself is VERY unhappy with it from a performance perspective.
Are there any ideas you have, by clicking on that link, that are common things you can recommend we do to deal with some of their above the fold issues? JQUERY seems like it's pretty large (v1.9). IF I don't have DNN conigured to use the minified version, then I'm hoping I can do so to solve that issue.
REally would love some practical thigns I can do to help improve the issues as Google PageSpeed points out.
Thank you in advance.
