    Reducing the number of images and file requests is a good place to start. Testing your load performance on a speed tester like tools.pingdom.com will let you know what your site's performance is. Pay attention to the load time of the main html as well. If that is slow, then it is likely a server issue.

    Reduce the number of unwanted plugins that you are used in your website.
    Reduce the server response time.
    Optimize your image size format and src structure.
    Enable your browser caching.

    Google's suggestions are crap, especially if it suggests using its stupid "page speed" stuff.

    I like https://gtmetrix.com better than the official google personally. Static websites will load a lot faster and if you use some kind of cms like wordpress do make sure that you use some kind of caching. Also slicing your large images and coming your css files will probably help you reduce load time. if you can share your website URL, maybe someone can suggest you even more

    Because Google wants you to use its own stuff. Not surprisingly, it got into the "cloud hosting" business and all that "load speed" stuff it promotes is just intended to sell its own products.

    Generally, if you want good load performance, don't host your site (especially something bloated and dynamically-generated like Wordpress) on a crappy host with overloaded servers and minimize the number of file requests your page has. The more images, javascript, and CSS files you include, the longer it will take to load your site.

    And that's about what you need to know. If you are worried about shaving 2/10ths of a second off your load time--which no visitor would ever notice--you are worried about the wrong things.

    None, because you can't control how fast your host, his upstream provider,
    big pipe, time of the day, overload and then the computer on another end
    which have to jump over the same abstractions and so on.

    Sites with nothing but pure text like academic sites under some conditions
    could load longer than site blotted with the endless junk. So, stop worry.

    When you are done with all basic fixes such as optimizing images, reducing number of http requests, compressing and combining js / css files. Try mod_pagespeed.
