I’m working on better optimizing my website for Core Web Vitals (don’t even get me started on how behind-the-times Webflow is on this) and I’m noticing a larger Transfer Size for Google Analytics than I would expect.
I have my Google Analytics ID set up through the Apps & Integrations page of the Webflow Settings.
(Not my real number lol)
I know Google Analytics is notoriously big and slow anyway — but from my CWV report it looks like the way Webflow is handling it might, somehow, be bigger and slower. (Are they separately running GA4 and UA still?)
(I know it says Google Tag Manager. But I’m 90% sure it’s Webflow’s Google Analytics integration. I removed my Measurement ID from Settings, saved, and re-published… then checked again, and both Google Tag Manager items were gone.)
Has anybody tested integrating Google Analytics in any other ways? Maybe just via a script in the Head? Anybody found success speeding this up a bit in other ways?
Thanks so much!
