After running the google page speed insights, and the think with google page speed tester, and there were quite a few things listed for me to improve on such as
Your page has 9 blocking script resources and 9 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
Leverage browser caching
Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
I've optimised the images however it shows me that there are some images to optimize that I dont know even know how to access on my site. As for the rest of the issues to correct I dont know where to go to correct these. My site performs very fast, But I still want these stats higher for their SEO value.
The suggestions above are a standard set of suggestions that Google will provide for pretty much any site built through a system like Weebly. You could enter almost any site into it and it'll give out at least one, if not all of those.
It's unfortunately not possible to do those with your site, although I don't think you'd notice any kind of real-world impact in speed. There's also no SEO impact from those changes since they're all performance related, so your SEO should be fine without doing those.
I agree those are just suggestions and at the most they will improve your site speed by fractions of a mili second, which are not even worth bothering. Weebly sites are already optimized to be fast, those changes will not help you. You can ignore those.
Do you work for Weebly? Page load speed is a factor in Google's page ranking system. That's why they're making the suggestions in the first place. If Weebly would spend as much time adding functionality as it does avoiding it, this would already be fixed.
I have a problem with a page that renders very slowly. It is all text and a handful of links.
See what I mean at http://www.sustainablelaccd.net/treepeople1.html
What can I do to fix it?
It loaded relatively quickly for me, although the large amount of text combined with the fade-in option you're using for the section makes it look like there's no text on the page until you scroll.
Adam, are you serious? C'mon man. It's one thing to say Google's suggestions don't have any "real world" impact on speed (mostly untrue). It's another thing to say it has no impact on SEO (completely untrue). As you well know, SEO is more than keyword optimization. Google's algoriths test for speed and usablitity just as much as they test for keywords and content. That's an absolute lie to say speed doesn't impact SEO. C'mon man.
@calebs84 @gharmon, yes, site speed (and therefore page speed) are weighed by Google, and used to ranks its pages. No one here is disputing that. What we are assuring you is that the specific suggestions that came up in the analysis of the Weebly site are not critical ones that will have a significant ramification on said algorithm.
