I recently switched my site to Genesis and using the agency pro theme. I had a few questions maybe someone could help me with I went to the Optimization guide located at: http://gtmetrix.com/wordpress-optimization-guide.html and got a 'C' mostly due to 'serve scaled images' and 'Remove query strings from static resources'
I got this error and not sure how to fix this in Genesis
The following images are resized in HTML or CSS. Serving scaled images could save 610.4KiB (83% reduction).
Resources with a "?" in the URL are not cached by some proxy caching servers. Remove the query string and encode the parameters into the URL for the following resources:
The images are sized according to the theme and I am not even sure where to start on the other message?
Site is http://www.rebabaskett.comhttp://www.rebabaskett.com
The first error is due to the fact that the images you upload are much bigger than what's required for the theme. For example, one of your homepage featured images is 1000x550, though the theme is resizing it to fit the specified theme image sizes. If you upload photos no larger than the largest possible size for the theme, that will help. Also, if you aren't already, install the WP Smush.it plugin - it will compress your images on upload with no loss of quality to make the files smaller.
I wouldn't worry too much about the query strings. That really isn't something you can easily fix. For instance, WordPress calls jQuery from the /wp-includes directory and it almost always attaches the version number in a query string. That shouldn't have much impact on your load times. Your site actually loads pretty quickly - just a little over 1 second.
Thanks for the feedback. I had already started making images smaller and will continue that for all new posts. I do use smushit.
