Mobile Site Speed Optimization

Marcus Krupp
Hi again, as we discussed with your support about our mobile speed issue they said most of the Google insight's suggestions includes your devs changing the way their app is programmed. So we are requesting if you could see and check on the mobile optimization issue on the links below:

This is the second time we sent this feature request, hoping that we will hear from you about this.

Mobile speed optimization will help us improve our operation. Hope this may be granted. Thank you so much!

There is a problem with Google PageSpeed Insights.  You can, ironically, Google "why PageSpeed Insights doesn't matter" and find numerous posts like these:

https://wp-rocket.me/blog/the-truth-about-google-pagespeed-insights/

https://wpfixit.com/do-not-use-google-pagespeed-insights/

PageSpeed Insights doesn't actually measure page speed, but uses a kind of checklist to show which elements you have implemented. Some of those, like "cache-control", are counter-productive when the service is already using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) as a cache, as we do. It can force the browser to fetch the image new instead of from the cache provided by the service. Compressing assets is another area that will probably be counter productive because they are already delivered, via the CDN, from a close source to the viewer, and do not have to employ the use of the webserver to decompress again. 

The one thing you can do is make sure your own images are optimized before uploading them and using them in your pages. There are other page speed services that will show which element has the longer loading time, 

Try using https://tools.pingdom.com/ and look at the "waterfall chart" at the bottom. Or use https://gtmetrix.com/ as an alternative.

The items we can't do, because they are either counter-productive or impossible, are "leverage browser caching", "use a cache validator" (for the aforementioned reason) and "minimize redirects" (which would break your link tracking, open & click rates, etc.)

Hi, Thank you for the answer.

We do now understand some part of it. But as we checked on gtmetrix and pingdom we still found some ontraport issue, is there a way we can minimize the loading time of the following?

Also on Yslow Add expire header issue from GTmetrix it shows ontraport forms and issue

We already optimized image. What we really want to achieve now is to make our mobile speed down to at least 4 seconds or less. So we are asking if you can do some optimization on your end about the problems above?

 

Thank you! Your response will be greatly appreciated.

We have optimized our JavaScript as much as we can; to eliminate it "calling home" would break tracking, so we can't do more on that. Merging all the CSS files isn't on our radar, for reasons explained above (they are served from local CDN already).

Hello. Thank you for that explanation. Do you think our mobile speed is fine? Since we can't do any optimization on this and most issue are on your end, can you check if it is loading fine on mobile also?

 

Thank you so much!

Your home page at https://wptangerine.com loads fine for me on my Android phone. It loads as quickly as wpengine.com and a second slower than siteground.com (both chosen because they haven't been visited by me on my phone). On the second visit to your site it was as fast as siteground.com (because our CDN was kicking in with cache).

Hi, thank you very much for the test. When we are testing the site on mobile speed test tool the result  loading time is more than 7 seconds that is why we are worried the mobile speed. What can you advice? Thanks a lot!
