    Today I found a way to get an 80+/100 on Google PageSpeed Insights. Remove render-blocking JavaScript was the main issue that I was encountering that's was slowing down my WordPress website.I didn't want to manually edit the Javascript files from my theme because I want to mess up nothing. Jquery is the culprit that may be causing the low grade .Most of these WordPress theme enabled Jquery to load first before the website contents.

    "Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content" or "Leverage browser caching" using Google PageSpeed Insights, here's a solution

    Today I have tested with a WordPress plugin to speed up my website 70% faster and my Google Score went from 70 to 86 with little to no technical work .

    Google's Recommendation
    JavaScript needed to render the above-the-fold region should be inlined, and JavaScript needed to add additional functionality to the page should be deferred until after the above-the-fold content has been delivered.
