Please help me improve my cache score.
I am running on an Apache server 2.2.21 and had the server admins to load the mod_cashe module, but I don’t know what to do next.
Any helpful tips or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
Here is my report link:
If your server allows for .htaccess overrides it looks like you should drop a .htaccess file in your /picts and /images directories with this in it:
ExpiresByType image/gif A31536000
ExpiresByType image/jpg A31536000
ExpiresByType image/jpeg A31536000
ExpiresByType image/png A31536000
ExpiresByType image/bmp A31536000
That said, don’t get too caught up just in the grades. Even though you have a lot of A’s, there is a LOT that needs to be done to make the site faster (6 seconds for start render is extremely long).
It looks like you might have a boatload of ads at the top of the HTML that is blocking the content from displaying. It would be worthwhile to reach out to the ad provider to see if they have an async or iframe implementation.
