Please don’t come with reply like: Optimise your images, clean unused CSS… for webflow website this was already made by them (and honestly I was expecting a 100 points on pagespeed, but my bricks website where I didn’t spend time to clear the unused CSS scored a better score)
Any ideas on how we can manage to do the same with webflow or just that’s it, we need to get used to a lower score point on pagespeed.
Webflow is built for designers, so it doesn’t touch your media and effectively pushes all of the optimization burden onto you directly. On the plus side, you’ll never have blurry images due to over-optimizations. On the minus site, a whole lot of extra work.
Typically for clients who use Webflow hosting and have a lot of CMS content, it’s unreasonable to get them to optimize every image consistently before adding to the CMS. To resolve that I use a reverse proxy with edge caching which typically brings scores up to mid 90’s.
What that suggests is that a significant part of the difference is just in Webflow’s hosting framework design itself and CDN design itself.
It’s up to you to decide what platform approach suits you and your clients best.
Thank you for your reply @memetican
Can you please expand a little bit more about “To resolve that I use a reverse proxy with edge caching which typically brings scores up to mid 90’s.” I don’t quite understand how to do
