Your Opinions on Caching

    My webpages are pretty lean and are scoring 100 in Google's PageSpeed test. They load in less than one second.

    Your opinions & advice? — Should I do some caching in my .htaccess to speed them up even more? Or should I just leave good results alone and not tamper with them? (I'm not high-tech and might do something harmful) Sample page: https://www.jimfeeney.org/broken-interpersonal-relationships-healed.html

    LOL, leave them alone. Page speed is not even a major ranking factor and you could use the time saved working on actual SEO.

    I think you should focus on SEO or other activities that can generate traffic to your website and provide you the leads.

    Yes, Sumit, I agree. My SEO is pretty good, I think, and we get 47,000 visitors a month to the website. I've been looking at caching options (which is a new technical idea for me). But with the download speeds at less than one second for our pages, I'm thankful for the advice above to ignore caching and focus on other helpful activities.

    By implementing caching you aren't just making your site faster, you are also making it perform better by equipping it to bear the burden of sudden traffic spikes.

    Caching is a great idea for speeding up your site and lowering the load on your server in some cases.

    The thing you need to watch out for is if you make many changes to your site still they could be served old versions of files.

    If its already scored 100. The caching is not much required. But keep monitoring your score in intervals when your site traffic actually grows.
