Recently, I enabled ‘Load essential icons only’ in the General section and the after that this Elimiinate render blocking of https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css?ver=4.9.4 popped up. Now even after disabling it, the script is not going away. Previously, the site loaded in 1.3 seconds but now it’s loading in 1.6 seconds in GTmetrix. I even want it to load faster in under 1 second. Can you guys please help me out in this.
So, that was the Simple author box plugin…I removed it and the load time went down to 1.3 seconds. Another thing I am facing issue on is the ‘Prioritize Above the Fold Content’. Only about 49% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.
What can I do about it. I have inserted Critical CSS as mentioned by the Autoptimize author, what else can be done.
