Removing unused Javascript to speed up

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://sparrowstartup.com/

CONTEXT:

I've been using https://pagespeed.web.dev/ to find ways to speed up my website. There's been multiple Javascript files which are unused (according to that site). Removing them will speed up load times on mobile/desktop for my website: https://sparrowstartup.com/

If you run my website on that testing site, it'll tell you some scripts should be removed, as shown in the picture attached. Doing so, would help my website load faster on mobile and desktop.

THE ASK:

(1) Can you please recommend how I can do so? My current score is low, I want to be above 70. Any honest, detailed tips would be very much appreciated.

(2) Based on the report from that site, Is there anything else other than removing javascript, that can help me speed up the website?

I can comment on the removing Javascript part of your question.

Unless you've added custom Javascript to your site there is nothing you can do to your site to remove Javascript. This is something only SS can do as they have access to the backend and we don't.

In other words you can remove Javascript you installed yourself on your site but not the Javascript installed by SS.

You can of course report to SS via customer support about unused Javascript but if they'll act on your info only SS knows.

Thanks Creed! 🙂

Waiting on some other responses to see if I can remove those specific scripts that the report pointed out.
