I get %89 score on my page http://www.ghlsports.com/, in the Expires Headers section with this comment

There is 1 static component without a far-future expiration date.

Is their a method to fix this, I found this article

Is this a good idea / bad idea any other recommendations
Don't do it. Google Analytics is used across so much of the web that it is almost guaranteed to be in a user's cache even with a short expires.
If you want to get a perfect score, than put it on your server and have it cached for as long as you want.

Create a cron job to always download the latest version from google Smile

Like Patrick said,
Don't do it.
Our website get %84 score on my page http://www.pajasaapartments.com/ in google page speed and showing following error

http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js missing expiry time


Suggest how to remove same .
Don't worry about it, it's not in your control. As long as you are using the async analytics snippet you are fine. Optimize of the actual performance, not necessarily the scores.

Same problem for my website https://www.banglabook.org/ , thought score is PageSpeed Score

Easy fix. Use CAOS plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/host-analyticsjs-local/

CAOS for Google Analytics allows you to host analytics.js locally and keep it updated using WordPress’ built-in Cron-schedule. Fully automatic!
