Don’t be overwhelmed by the table below; most optimizations can be easily achieved with an optimization plugin. I personally use the free Speed Optimization plugin that comes bundled with SiteGround’s Hosting plan. However, there are several other options, including W3 Total Cache (W3TC), WP Rocket, and FlyingPress.
2. Review the Report: GTmetrix will quickly generate a performance report, pinpointing each area that requires improvement.
3. Consult our table below to address the specific areas highlighted by GTmetrix. While GTmetrix often uses complex terminology, overcomplicates its instructions, and provides guidance for a broad spectrum of websites, we’ve streamlined and tailored their recommendations specifically for WordPress sites. With our clear and straightforward guidelines, you’ll find it much easier to understand and implement the necessary changes.
4. Re-test After Implementing Changes: After making a change, clear your website’s cache if it’s enabled. Re-test on GTmetrix to assess the impact of your adjustments. Using the new results, move on to the next suggested improvement and continue the process.

Implementing this feature can be achieved by using an Optimization Plugin:
Critical request chains are sequences of interconnected requests essential for the page rendering. They arise from the Critical Rendering Path, determining the order in which these requests are tackled. When these chains are long, especially with large resources, they can greatly slow down page loading because they’re render-blocking. Reducing the length of these chains can lower latency and speed up page load times.
GTmetrix indicates the longest critical request chain and the associated latency. By minimizing the number of critical resources through delaying their download, eliminating them entirely, or reducing the critical path length, you can enhance your website performance and improve user experience for your visitors.
Generally, analyze the resources loaded on your page and strive to reduce the time and effort invested by the browser in loading your page.
There are various strategies you can utilize to optimize the length of the critical request chain, such as:
