Google speed shows mailchimp affecting my speed?

Google speed shows mailchimp affecting my speed?

asked in
Search Engine Optimization

Hi everyone,

I have been doing really well with my speed tests on Google. However, I recently added MailChimp so that I can start creating email lists to send out my new

Hi everyone, as an update SiteSupport says that MailChimp is a 3rd party site so they aren't able to physically do anything on that end. But they have confirmed that from what they can determine, my site speed is running well. I will still look into this on MailChimp side to see if I can reduce my landing page image or any other image that I have used.

Thank you for your comments!

Something I need to look into, thanks for the post

Hey Max,

You may receive advice on this from SiteSupport given that the server now caches our website.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you for your reply! I have submitted a ticket and will update my question so that others will also know what they can do if they encounter the same issue.

An excellent idea Max, and Thank YOU for being so considerate of other members. A nice touch!

You are welcome! I am just getting into mail lists, sign up forms etc but I don't want to sacrifice my website speed for emails.

Getting Started

Hi everyone,

I have read on another post that Site Content automatically optimizes the pictures when you insert them into your post. I usually go on Pixaby site directly

Thanks for the useful comments everyone. Really helpful for us newbies

I re-size all pics to "Web - Small" in MS Office Picture Manager before uploading.

After that, my EWWW Image Optimizer plugin does the rest.

No worries.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I think I will do a test of posting with photos from site content and another using tinypng and track the speeds on both. I’ve also been using a plug-in but prefer not to use it if possible to cut down on the amount that I’m using.

Site Content seems to be doing a good job of reducing the images I have placed into it. I commonly use my own images. They are coming in at 50 to 100 kb in size once published.

That's just my experience these days.

Use site content but there are some great readying up tips given here first!

I always do both if I use site content.

I always optimize images outside SideContent and insert them into the post in my WP page builder.

I do that too. It's quick and easy.

YES i agree with this approach this way you are certain to choose exactly what you want without retracing your steps over again?
