    Test For Render Blocking


    I've been trying for some time to remove Render Blocking from my site using various plugins. Some testers (Google speed test, seotesteronline) say I have eliminated render blocking. Other testers (website grader, gtmetrix) say i still have render blocking. Is there a test that will give me a definitive answer?

    Hello,

    I'm not an expert - other folks might have better advice than me. But if Google's PageSpeed Insights says you're ok, you're probably fine. Have you gone through the steps they suggest? https://developers.google.com/speed/...hts/BlockingJS

    It is weird and understandably frustrating that some tools will say "Everything's fine!" while others might say "Still needs work!" I'm not sure why that would happen other than maybe some tools have different thresholds.

    Hi Mark,

    Yes I've made my js asynchronous and deferred it. That's why it's so confusing. Google says I'm ok and other sites say I'm not.

    My guess in terms of the different tools might be something to do with which version of the page is being tested. a live version versus a cached version. Only thing I can think of.

    I'm just curious. Can you post you site, without adding the 'http://' part.

    If you're talking about this in GTMetrix:

    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/yts/jsbin/player-en_US-vflclXGin/base.js (983.2KiB)
    https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js (87.0KiB)
    https://www.youtube.com/yts/jsbin/www-embed-player-vflGO7wRU/www-embed-player.js (84.5KiB)
    https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?v=3.exp&libraries=places&ver=4.7.3 (66.9KiB)
    https://staticxx.facebook.com/connect/xd_arbiter/r/ao6eUeuGXQq.js?version=42 (35.4KiB of inline JavaScript)
    https://www.youtube.com/embed/mKqf_NB1exg?autoplay=1&rel=0&controls=0&showinfo=0 (2.6KiB of inline JavaScript)
    https://www.clicklockroofing.com/ (367B of inline JavaScript)
    Then all of those issues can't not be "fixed". I would move on, you have bigger fish to fry. It's taking about 25 to 30 seconds to load your site. Way too slow.

    Agreed. We're working on improving our server and setting up a cdn. We're hoping that will improve our speed. We've done everything we can from our side I believe (caching, optimized, etc) so we think those are the last issues we have.
