Leverage browser caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:

Prioritize visible content

Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
204.6KiB of the HTML response was required to render the above-the-fold content. This requires 4 network round-trips. Prioritize the above-the-fold content so that it can be rendered with only the first 2 round-trips' worth of HTML.
None of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the HTML delivered within 2 round-trips.
Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 5.5KiB (26% reduction).
Compressing https://cache-ssl.celtra.com/api/videoThumb/74d078…height=608&position=50 could save 3.3KiB (27% reduction).
Compressing https://cache-ssl.celtra.com/api/videoThumb/68a93f…height=256&position=50 could save 2.2KiB (24% reduction).
Enable compression

Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 2.2KiB (61% reduction).
Compressing https://d31qbv1cthcecs.cloudfront.net/atrk.js could save 2.2KiB (61% reduction).
Minify HTML

Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 2KiB (37% reduction).
Minifying https://secure-au.imrworldwide.com/storageframe.html could save 1.2KiB (35% reduction) after compression.
Minifying https://cdn-gl.imrworldwide.com/novms/html/ls.html could save 885B (40% reduction) after compression.
Minify JavaScript

Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.
Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 1.2KiB (18% reduction).
Minifying https://ads.celtra.com/caf04028/web.js?&expandDire…adId=14881141134537756 could save 625B (18% reduction) after compression.
Minifying https://ads.celtra.com/c726e053/web.js?&expandDire…adId=14881141134537756 could save 624B (18% reduction) after compression.
