I am not a teacher.
A group of friends are discussing a sentence we found on a website, namely, "Testing and optimizing your website were never easier."
The rest say the singular verb "was" should be used.
I say the sentence as written is correct. Am I?

I suppose it will depend on whether you consider these as two separate actions, or as a combined and linked action. I can see arguments for both. Your view is perfectly valid.
