Many of us think website speed is not important. This could be one of our biggest mistakes ever for thinking this way. A second delay on your website means you get fewer page views, dissatisfaction from your customers and loss in terms of conversion of leads.
A fast site speed enables good customer satisfaction and more conversion, so if your website takes a few seconds to load pages, it will have a lasting effect negatively on sales and engagements. You cannot get around this, so, therefore, it is crucial that your website loads very fast and not only getting good ranks from Google but also maximizing profit.
In June 2021, Google started rolling out its Page Experience update which makes it necessary for websites to have a good Core Web Vitals score. As a new factor for Google ranking, your site needs to pass this test to come up top in search results.
It might sound funny, but the Google Analytics script for tracking your Core Web Vitals score may also affect your site speed thereby affecting your score as well if not enhanced for optimal performance. We are happy to introduce a better way to load web pages faster with the updated MonsterInsghts 7.18 website tracking script and the All-in-One SEO plugin integration.
MonsterInsights Faster Loading Script
The updated plugin script by MonsterInsights comes with a Performance addon that loads faster than it used to, even though the old script was fast. This is a great plugin to help you get that high-performance on your site with good Core Web Vitals scores. With this updated plugin, you get new features that enable you to locally host a gtag.js script on your server.
By adding the gtag.js script to your local server, it makes your page load time faster because it limits your site from loading too many external links and resources. Google Analytics is set by default with a two-hour cache time, but by hosting this script locally, you get exclusive access to control cache files. In addition, this performance add-on fetches the latest gtag.js script from Google automatically daily to ensure it is constantly updated.
