    Best upgrade for me was using Cloudflare and total caching on my websites. You basically get a free CDN which makes your website super-fast. And it's free!

    Someone already said it but, optimize images to load faster. Cache the CSS files and do not put Javascript files directly in the code, but instead, link to them from your page.

    Use the least amount of plugins. Good luck!

    For issues 1, 2, and 3 The resolution lies with your Far Future Header plugin and its settings. I personally don't see a reason to use such a plugin to start with. #4 is pretty self explanatory. you are using a hosting provider that uses cookies - and maybe there is a setting to remove those, or you simply need a new host.

    Website speed depends on many aspects. The reason for the slow loading WordPress website can be the framework, website structure, code structure, images, hosting, too much JS or CSS, too many HTTP requests, too many plugins, underperforming servers, etc.

    So, if you have done with caching, HTTP request and DNS lookup, try to check website size, minify CSS and JS, reduce the image sizes and try to upgrade your hosting server to a find a good VPS/Cloud-based hosting server provider who has good hardware and infrastructure to offer great website loading speed.

    Without seeing your speed report, I'm assuming it's GT Metrix since you mentioned YSlow, it's hard to say.

    However, many WordPress users don't realize that the more plugins they use the more "bloat" and third-party requests may be happening that you aren't aware of. Whether that's third-party javascript, font files (i.e., Google fonts), or other things.

    WordPress supports "Lazy Load Optimizer" plugin to speed up the page loading process. This plugin uses "lazysizes" library of GitHub which is an SEO-friendly loader capable of processing iframes and images. It smartly identifies all visibility changes occurred through JavaScript, CSS or manual interactions by the user. This plugin contains some interesting features such as:-
    1. Customizable loading effects
    2. Change-remove of image
    3. Size adjustment in pixels
    4. Setting animation time in milliseconds
    5. Customizable background colors

    You can configure it with any WordPress version of 4.0 or higher. It is a lightweight plugin that smartly fixes "defer offscreen images" error. Download lazysizes.min.js script and embed the library with your web page.

    The more plugins you have, the slower your site will be. If you use certain plugins, they themselves may help, but they themselves may also slow down your site. Manual changes to the server, the website itself and images optimization, and hardware upgrades are among a few of the many suggested ways to speed up your website.

    If you want to do speed optimization on your WordPress website then first of all you need to change your hosting server. And you need to add CDN to your WordPress website. With free CDN you will get good service temporarily but you will not get any service permanently.
