I check a number of different pages every once in a while in PageSpeed insights just to make sure the scores are in the green to help with user experience and SEO.
I notice for the same pages I tested back in May (after upgrading my website) for Optimization I was getting mid to high 80s for mobile and low to mid 90's for desktop. I have made very few changes to the template since then and I ran the tests again and notice on my page, on average mobile has droped about 10 points while desktop numbers have increased slightly (1-3 points). I even rolled back a few changes to see if it made the difference (it did not).
Optimization suggestions are the same as before and the stats for them have not changed since May.
Reduce Server Response Time
Leverage browser caching (just for the Google Analytics file)
I am not worried about getting 100 or anything as I think it is more important to spend time on content but I would rather keep all pages above 80.
Anyone have any idea what Google change in the PageSpeed tool algo which change how Google views optimizations for mobile?
