  1. Okay, thank you. I'll check into the font thing and the image compressing I will do. Hopefully soon or one day there will be a way to migrate.
  2. Thomspon So far we narrowed it down to two fonts, and I'm not sure how to compress images just yet! Do you have a tool you like?
  3. Okay, great. Thank you! I'm going to look into that. Ours our dropping too, but there was another Google update on Friday, and I'm going through the Google Search Quality Evaluator Rating Guidelines to see if I can make any updates to improve the site outside of Speed, too. - Amanda
  4. Hey ThomsonWebDesign, I'm looking at 7.1 now (https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/360027708412-About-Squarespace-version-7-1) and didn't even know they had a new version. That's amazing and thank you! You're probably right and I wonder if it's possible for me to switch templates...
  5. Do you mind if I ask what changes you made so far? This is what Google released this week on the whole sitespeed rating thing - https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2019/11/search-console-speed-report.html It's an experimental test, so how SS or other platform sites rank could change. While critical and I'm working on optimizing it now, to see what if anything I can do, it's only one of the many metrics for how a page does or ranks. I am also wondering what the SS developers are doing to adapt to these changes, they seem quick enough.
  6. Hey Andy, I have just posted a thread here - I included some changes I made that created minimal difference, but even if it's only 1-4 points, it's still an increase. I just wanted to let you know I'm working hard over here trying to find a solution, and will update you if anything works that I find. Others are in the same boat!
  7. Hey Guys! Google Search Console updated its metrics for Site Speed this last week, and after months on the rise, my website views are now on the downfall. It's not a critical tank, but you can see that it's slowly going down and down. I've reached out to SS support, and they said my site is excellent and running smoothly on their end, but my Google Search Console is filled with Page Speed errors and that combined with the tanking viewership, the data shows otherwise. I've read through every SS document, removed as much custom code as I can find and do without, simplified my text to be web-friendly fonts only, updating everything I can see, and SS support suggested post here for support. Before I implemented all the suggestions in the SS documents, my website was ranking a ONE (1) for Google site speed on mobile and a NINETEEN (19) on desktop PageSpeed Insights, these are out of 100. After I made all these updates, I am now ranking a TWO (2) and a TWENTY THREE (23), for site speed. I'm part of a forum that is mostly Wordpress users, and they are ranking 83-100 on average. The few other SS website owners have reached out to me in this group, and we are all racking our brains. Google is 80% of my page views, Pinterest next then Facebook, so this does matter to me considerably. Other website owners I know have reached out in tears and mental exhaustion since all these changes started rolling out in September. I am trying to hold my resolve. All these error codes keep coming up on https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/, too - most of them are assests.squarespace or Typekit related, some third party code on Mobile which I'm trying to figure out. So far I've - Reduced advertising Removed unnecessary third party code Changed my font to be web friendly I checked with SS, and they said all my images are in proper sizes, but lots of the errors on my PageSpeed Insights shows to be image related. Does anyone have any suggestions? SS Customer Support Suggested I post here. I send every blessing your way.
