Don't you think that it will make your forum less visible in Google? I have 50% of visitors from Google. I don't want to loose them.Correction, my old theme was getting 60-70 on mobile. I changed to XF's and am now getting 41 mobile and 94 desktop.
yes I doAre you using async Google ads?
Thanks for your reply. I understand that you want to help, but how much from what you wrote would help https://xenforo.com/community/ to increase their 45 out of 100? )1. If your theme is slowing down pageloads, you need a new theme.
2. Google AdSense is well know for slowing down pageloads, even in async mode, but if you need the income, there's not much you can do about that except consider reducing the number of ads per page. If you're using Google Auto Ads, don't. Revert to regular Google Responsive Ads and choose the number and placement yourself.
3. Scroll down the pagespeed results page to examine the recommendations Google gives you for speeding up your site.
4. Don't just rely on Google PageSpeed metrics. Check https://tools.pingdom.com/ and https://gtmetrix.com/ as well and follow their recommendations. Both of those show better speeds than the Google site. The new Google site at https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ is way out of whack when compared to other pagespeed services.
5. Check your addons: Try disabling one or more and see what effect that has on page loads.
6. Take a look at your hosting, especially if you get any recommendations suggesting the time to first response is slow.
I did. You are right, they show better results. But they are showing results for a desktop browser. And I'm worry about bad results for mobile devices.Check out the other two pagespeed sites I linked to above. You will probably find that they show more positive ratings and more specific recommendations.
I like webpagetest.org. You can change the browser/equipment being used and the speed.I did. You are right, they show better results. But they are showing results for a desktop browser. And I'm worry about bad results for mobile devices.
You do that at the server level in .htaccess (what needs to be entered depends on your server and what cache control is available on it).Snog, how did you get an A for Cache static content??!! )
