I noticed recently the Google page speed insights has improved somewhat, shows a lot more information however is harsh especially it seems for Magento 2 (I can get 98 so far from other non Magento 2 websites).
I am used to being able to getting Page Speed insights scores into the 80s and 90s with some light tweaks although felt this was just ticking check boxes (deferring resource, using optimised images, gzip and caching resources, avoiding redirects etc) and now it seems a bit more real based on performance of the site. Now however I am looking at scores of 30 ish.
I'm posting this question as want to know if everyone else is as bad and what measures you have taken to improve these poor scores?
I guess at the end of the day it is all relative and everyone will get worse scores I'm just slightly concerned Magento may be hit harder than other eCommerce platforms and not sure on the SEO side of this but would like to atleast try and improve as this cannot be good... Further tests on competitor sites shows some sites still in the 60-70 range this seem to be on much lighter eCommerce platforms.
