3. Make Sure Your Website Is Minified
Make sure you test your website after enabling anything that combines or minifies your website’s resources. Experiment with the different options to see what’s best for your website, as some features can break with Minify enabled.
4. Avoid Loading Scripts When Not Needed
Requesting these will slow down your loading speed, further and can potentially pose a security risk. Keep them on your website’s server when possible.
You can safely use defer and async on Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, and other analytics and error reporting tools without affecting the functionality of the page.
Lastly, consider whether the tracking codes, analytics, extra features, and ads you have running on your website are necessary. Use more lightweight options when possible, and scrap them if they don’t add anything of value to you or your visitors.
