We migrated a website from Drupal to Magento. After the migration the website's Google Pagespeed scores are much lower.
With WordPress I can easily get to scores 99 for mobile and 100 for desktop. It's a bit harder with Drupal. I was hoping that the Magento community had figured this out like WordPress (after all, faster pages means more sales). Now I'm pretty new to Magento myself, so I'm wondering, maybe the shop that handled the migration missed something important? Or is it generally hard to optimize Magento?
Plus the actual experience of opening a product page is sub-optimal: it takes about 7 seconds before the most important image is showing.
What are some things we can do to speed up our website? That will help us get a better Pagespeed score. After all, it's all about the Google SERPs.
