A Simple Guide To Fixing GTMetrix Errors
The assurance of fulfilling user experience is a
major reason which prompts people to use
WordPress for building websites. Its lightweight
and efficient core code helps in the creation of
fast loading interfaces. However, with the
passage of time, as the interface grows, the
speed can take a hit which can then affect its
performance. This can adversely impact the
traffic of the website and consequently the
business of the entity it represents. Many
people, therefore, use tools like GTMetrix to
analyze page speed performance in detail. In this
article, we are providing some useful information
about fixing GTMetrix errors. It will help in
optimizing all the elements of the tool like
Google Page Speed and YSlow.

What Is GTMetrix?
Before we discuss the ways to resolve the issues,
it will be pertinent to know what exactly is
GTMetrix. It is a free tool developed by a
company called GT.net. The firm devised it as a
solution for analyzing the websites of its
hosting services clients. The solution uses
Google Page Speed and YSlow to evaluate an
interfaces performance. It then generates a
report which contains data like the total page
size and fully loaded time apart from PageSpeed
and YSlow scores.

How To Fix Some Common GTMetrix Errors?
Lets now know about some common errors which can
occur during analyses and how to fix them. 1.
Server Status Errors The tool will only evaluate
a page which returns a success HTTP status code.
The occurrence of this error means that the page
in question has an error HTTP status code. This
can happen in WordPress websites when a reverse
proxy like CloudFlare blocks the tool from
accessing the page. An e-commerce solution or
some other plugins will also block access based
on the IP. 2. Your Page Took Too Long To
Load Did you convert PSD to WordPress theme and
your new websites evaluation is returning this
error? The tool waits for a maximum of 2 minutes
for a page to load. In case, your interface
crosses that threshold, it will display the
message. The most common reason for this is a
bloated website which is consuming too many
resources during loading.

3. Minify HTML When you see this message it
means that you need to decrease the volume of the
HTML code in your page. This can happen due to
inefficient coding. You must eliminate all
unwanted or repetitive data which are not
required for processing by browsers. There are
tools like HTML Minifier which will help conduct
the process. 4. Minify and Combine CSS and
Minify Javascript Just like the error discussed
in the above point, this message means that you
need to decrease the amount of your JS and CSS
code. In fact, if you have not yet installed the
tool, then you can ask your developer to use
minification techniques while coding to avoid
fixing GTMetrix errors. Deleting all unnecessary
spaces and description will reduce the file size
of the website.

5. Number of Requests According to the service
ideally, a website must have an average of under
87 requests. The lesser the requests the better
will be an interfaces performance. This issue
can be resolved by enabling lazy loading on the
website. There are plugins which can be used for
the purpose. 6. Specify Image Dimensions This
message directs you to specify the dimensions of
the images on your interface. You can define the
height and width of the pictures through CSS.
However, it will be a good idea to do the needful
through HTML as well. This can be done in the
following manner ltimg srclink altdescript
ion widthY heightX /gt This will optimize
the images and their indexing speed will get a
boost.
