Using Webflow I see where it has a BUNCH of file requests that significantly lower page load speeds.
My site is calling for three css files and then three java files before the page loads. Because of the “cool” animations I need these to load before the “fold” so the page will render properly. But this is really hurting my page speed and AdWords has lowered my Page Scores (which raises my CPC cost) because of the slow page speed. My AdWords category is competetive and my spend is over 100k annually, so ANY inflation of CPC is significant!
Google Page Speed Insights is rating my Desktop and Mobile at 34 & 35 out of 100. This is considered VERY poor.
I don’t really know a solution to this except to bail out of Webflow and go back to Wordpress. Not something I want to do after investing a couple of months into my new site which I REALLY like.
My site is www.richmondbedding.com and is hosted elsewhere.
I’ve looked at “inlining” the css and java but the file size would be huge and still take a while to load. Plus I’d have to edit the HTML to inline all the code EVERY time I make a change to a page.
Anyone else had this experience with page load speed and have a suggestion?
