PREVENT YOUR STORE FROM LOSING POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS
It’s not a secret, that stores with a slow speed loading are affected by the Google RankBrain algorithm now. Meanwhile, no one wants to look for goods beyond the first page of search results. The study of Advanced Web rankings shows that websites on the first search results page receive almost 95% of web traffic, leaving only 5% for the remaining pages. In the end, if your store isn’t optimized well, Google will pessimize it and you won’t get as many potential customers as you can.
Nowadays Google takes into account a page speed as the main ranking factor for mobile and desktop searches. Pages delivering the slowest user experience are out of the game. The same speed standards touch all developers. It means that only stores with fast loading speed and an optimized performance will get the highest places in a Google search ranking and can extinguish competitors.
Magento 2 Speed Optimization Extension makes a store performance friendly both for users and search engines. Visitors won’t leave your store because of the unforgivably long loading. Meanwhile, the Google Rankbrain will index your store faster and get you the highest places in Google search results. Don’t miss the opportunity to increase conversions!

HOW TO EVALUATE YOUR STORE PAGES PERFORMANCE
Although there is no tool that directly indicates whether a page is affected by the Google mobile and desktop ranking factor, here is a resource that can be used to evaluate a page’s performance. It’s a GTmetrix, a tool, that indicates how well a webpage performs and suggests performance optimizations. We can congratulate you if your site score is higher than 90 points! But if the result is below 90, we recommend you to try Magento 2 Performance Optimization extension for saving your potential customers.

Sign static files
Let Google Page Speed Optimizer for Magento 2 invalidate the browser cache for static resources. After the feature is activated, a browser will update cache files automatically to prevent issues related to browsers serving up old static resources. At the same time, visitors will always see the latest changes you have done.
Use asynchronous indexing
Try asynchronous indexing to distinguish traffic patterns on the database level to avoid conflicts between read and write operations in the corresponding tables. With Magento 2 Google Page Speed Plugin, you can store and index order data asynchronously. Orders are placed in temporary storage and moved in bulk to the Order Management grid without any collisions.

I'm talking about Google scores, so from a machine's point of view. I think from a visitor's perspective, the site is faster and that can help conversion rate, but I was really hoping to get my mobile score out of the red zone.
We managed to improve on average, in desktop environment, from 30/40 to 75/85, without needing a considerable effort for installation or configuration, while we need further interventions to improve the score in a cellular environment.
We have not yet used some interesting possibilities on image compression.
Without a doubt, we recommend the extension to anyone who needs to improve PageSpeed Insights score and website performance, without further intervention on the server or other aspects.
