You are scored on 4 elements; Performance, Accessibility, Best Practices and SEO.

There are lots of items within these elements that can be reduce your score, some are easy to fix using a caching plugin or checking that one of your plugins is not slowing things down. There are also some small things that can be checked in the coding to gain a few extra points.

However if you are seeing slow loading or a poor score the biggest change could come from changing your hosting. A fast hosting service with the latest protocols can massively improve the speed of your site.
