Google Pagespeed tells me that server times are too long

I’ve been testing my site with Google Pagespeed for these past few days and most of the time, it tells me to “Reduce server response time” claiming that the server responded in anywhere between 220 to 260 ms.

There was even 1 instances where it took 690ms:

Do note that as per Google’s documentation (https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/insights/Server), latency has been subtracted from this time.

Certainly something must be wrong if it takes Github or its CDN’s server more than 200ms to process a static webpage.

Please believe Google… roll over… and start converting everything to AMP! (just joking)

I tried another speed test: https://tools.pingdom.com/#5986bea241c00000

Your website seems just fine. Response time is 71ms.
