Thread: SEO and Page Load Times - Auto Nova

    SEO and Page Load Times - Auto Nova

    Hi,

    I'm trying to improve the page load time on the Auto Nova theme, as the demo theme only scores "E" , 58% on GTMetrix : https://gtmetrix.com/reports/auto.de...x.com/MYX6JZnX

    If you look at the GTMetrix waterfall, you will notice that when using the Google ReCaptcha plugin the code is loaded 3 times, where can I make the change so that it is only loaded once?

    When viewing in desktop mode the image thumbnails are resized from full 270px to 88px, how do I use the thumbnail images for thumbnails instead of large size? How do I enable lazy load for the full size images too, as this uses a lot of bandwidth and slows the page load speed. This also causes SEO issues too.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You need to upgrade your hosting.
    I was told i have alot of unwanted traffic to my shared server and that results in slow loading speed. Well that is just one of the factors.

    Hi Kiowa,

    Thanks for your reply.

    My dedicated server is pretty powerful, just trying to reduce the bloat for a better user experience and better SEO ranking. Google will not rank you well if your page isn't optimised.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm not getting much of a problem with the server response time. It's just the bloat on the pages, Flynax has made a great improvement with the maps. Just some of the other area's need looking into now. The images really do need looking at, it would be great if they were optimised and to have a better slideshow with lazy loading too. The Google reCaptcha code like: https://www.gstatic.com/recaptcha/re...captcha__en.js is loaded several times, where can I change this to just one time?

    To be successful in the classified market you need to compete with sites that have optimised their pages to load fast. Flynax is a great script but just needs a few tweaks :-).

    Many thanks

    I don't know were to start but I do not have issues with Flynax Software's SEO options or Page speed

    I am at GoDaddy which is considered to be poor at website hosting.

    3 websites are on this server and I have received awesome scores at GtMetrix, Pingdom, Google Pagespeed and WebPageTest.org

    Combination: Godaddy VPS (SSD) + Cloudflare Free service

    GoDaddy Server VPS (2 vCPU) here

    Majority of my pages are ranking between 1 to 8 on google

    Google Page Speed Test:
    Mobile: 74%
    Desktop: 96%


    WebPageTest.org:
    all As

    GTMetrix:
    B (88%) C (72%)

    Cloudflare what settings do you use? I’ve tried it once, but it has become much slower for me. Could something be set up incorrectly?

    i think slow page speeds is a big part of not ranking on google.
