Stacks and Google Page Speed is it a Problem?

(scott williams) #1

Hi Folks,

When I run my site through Google Developers Page Speed, I get this response:

73 / 100 Speed
Should Fix:

Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
Your page has 4 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:…mmon/plugins/stacks/font-awesome.min.css

Should I be concerned that I am going to take a hit from Google?

As I think @joeworkman pointed out elsewhere, the Google speed tests are unrealistic and you can create a Foundation site full of stacks which will actually rank more highly than Google’s own pages. I’ve just run on Google’s test and got the (suspiciously standard) 73%. Pingdom ranks it at 100%.
