With the Core Web Vitals setting in soon, I thought it was the right time to get my site to load as fast as possible. I ran a test on pingdom and its averaging more than 2 seconds. I was wondering if I could implement some site wide changes on GP to get my site to load faster by reducing requests.
I just ran a GT Metrix on the sites home page. It’s only making 19 requests and is under 400kb in size. And the latest single post is only 20 requests and 500kb.
The one thing GP would be to change Customizer > General > Icons to SVG – that will shave off another request. And i would probably reduce the number of posts on the home page. This will again reduce the number of requests for images
