    Hi, I was running some speed tests on a new website, I used gtmetrix and Google pagespeed insights. They both gave high results on the main page and recognized the page was compressed. But when I tested one of the blog pages they suggested to enable gzip compression. I applied gzip compression through the modification of the htaccess file, how can it be that some pages are not the compressed while others are? My host is siteground. I hope someone can help me, thanks

    I was wondering the same yesterday because I got the same recommendation.

    So your site is gzip compressed as a whole but some elements require an extra gzip compression which it’s difficult to be done.

    So skip it.

      I agree with you, but I wonder why it happens. I don’t want to add another plugin only to do what supposed to have been done already, I’m not even sure it would help.

      Nothing would help except some htaccess coding.

      Is your page load time good for you? If yes, forget about it.

      The most important piece of these tests is Page Load Time. If it’s good, it doesn’t matter whether you have 23 or 123 HTTP requests.
