Hi all,

 

Ever since the new Website Grader has been updated my website scores just get worse and worse, I have been reading the suggestion tags and implementing them but the score keeps getting worse, Here is an example, the site score was averaging 84 and now (in 1 day without changes) dropped to 67.

I have been doing website and SEO for over 5 years, so I get the just of everything. But the grader keeps scoring the site poorer each time I test it.

Ex, my website is fully optimized for images, metadata, SCC and JavaScript compression all to make it lighter, but the Page Size on the grader keeps increasing and went from 2.7MB to 5.7MB overnight. 

Please assist and advise if there any issue with the grader as NONE of the changes I implement betters the scores, it just gets worse.

a page size of over 5mb is a problem with images. Do you have a link to your site?
