How got 90+ GTMetrix grade with minimum cost?

Today I am going to share real GTMetrix grades for my real customers with different themes, plugins and hosting services. As you know GTMetrix is a tool to easily test the performance of webpages. All the websites have been designed by WordPress with love. So let’s begin!

Final words and conclusion:

  1. Since I am using Divi lifetime license for many websites, the price for Divi theme and Divi builder is almost free.
  2. Litespeed cache plugin only works great on litespeed servers.
  3. I optimize images before upload with imagecompressor.com
  4. The only case with average price is the nursery in Dubai. All other cases have really affordable costs.
  5. The speed of visual composer, Divi builder and Avada builder is really good. But you must use good hosting, optimize images before uploading and use the internal speed tools of themes.
  6. It is very important to setup jquery and CSS setting correctly in performance plugin to get good rank.
  7. You can get good results even with shared hosting services.

I have also used same settings for these websites: Samana Oils, Clairmont Developers, Mahak Medical, Khodbidari, NurseryInDubai and KavianiOnline.
