With the Google page experience update coming up, I’m sure a lot of people are going to be aiming to push their webflow sites in terms of performance.
On PageSpeed Insights - our site is ranking 90-95 on Desktop - but on mobile it’s struggling (between 50-70).
Even after rolling out WebP images to replace png/jpg - the biggest blocker seems to be the min.css Webflow serves.
It seems to be taking so long to serve this 32kb file (2.3 seconds)
People have posted on the forums - but it seems to get shut down by saying essentially it’s a black box and can’t be changed and that page speed isn’t a big ranking factor. With the new update, I’d hope there can be more of a discussion on this?
However - elsewhere there is discussion of deferring CSS and JS - with WP having plugins for this.
Are there any updates on this topic or plans to update things?
You can always export your site and self host. Of course if you use the CMS you would have to export your data and build a back end. Alternatively you could leverage Udesly and JamStack your site. Webflow is a nocode solution and that’s where they focus so with that you have to either work around all the limitations or build with code.
Hmm, ok, so I presume Webflow loads the Captcha because I used the element from their navigation.
So, what I am seeking is advice and knowledge around how to fix several issues in the Core Vitals on my site… for starters. I’m trying to fill gaps in my knowledge so to speak and I am seeking guidance. Are you able to guide me in some way? Would it be better for us to have a chat or is this not your thing?
