Autoptimize closing in on W3 Total Cache

Fun fact; As per “popular plugins” ranking , Autoptimize is slowly but surely closing in on what used to be the go-to solution for Web Performance Optimization W3 Total Cache based on the “active installs” metric. Who would have thought? What a crazy ride …

  1. Keep going Frank! Your plugin is the best. Tried them all. Even Sitegrounds own optimizer didn’t work nearly as well for my site despite them being such a huge company. Not to mention you personally answer every support question so well. Amazing. Thanks so much.

  2. Personally I use W3 Total Cache, to sync with Cloudflare and Stackpath.
    Then I used Fast Velocity Minify, but recently swapped over to Autoptimize. (They’re both amazing if set up correctly.)
    Just got 100/100 on GT Metrix for my new site with a 72 image blog post on shared hosting. 🙂
    Thank you, Frank.

  3. Sorry Frank, just noticed this.
    Well I keep an eye on my HTML file and try to keep it under 50 to 60kb. Also top marks on every benchmark. Recently found a Google Easter Egg for getting a perfect Lighthouse audit. 4 x 100 and full marks on the PWA test.
    My new site’s homepage only has 3 requests and is 26kb so inlining for me isn’t the same as for someone with a page builder, etc.
    I’ve recently started using your Lazy Loading – it’s the only one that I find actually works – and helps the longer posts with PageSpeed Insighs scoring.
    All the best for a fast 2020. :}
