critical JS/CSS slows pages - bad for SEO and google ranking

Recommended Posts

The new SEO tools are nice but since page speed is one of the most relevant aspects you should do something about slow loading.

Just a few examples of what Googles PageSpeedInsights tell me:

Eliminate render-blocking resources. Estimated savings: 4.19 s


Resources are blocking the first paint of your page. Consider delivering critical JS/CSS inline and deferring all non-critical JS/styles.

URL Size Potential Savings

Can I do anything myself?

Google's PageSpeed Insights tool examines a site's code to provide suggestions and best practices for speeding up a site. The tool is useful when coding your own site, but can present misleading results for sites built on a CMS platform, like Squarespace. Check this Squarespace help guide for more specifics:
