Many people experience a very fast loading of their site when they switch to Acabado. Over time though this may slow, sometimes due to images and videos loading.
Linking to YouTube means that you are now loading that video as part of your page load, leading to longer delays for scoring. The best way to combat this is to use a lazy load plugin.
The one I have been using which did help out my load speed is “Lazy Load by WP Rocket” and it is free. This plugin allows you to load images and videos only when they are about to enter the browser which can help increase your speed.
It is pretty straight forward to setup and requires almost no time to be ready and speeding up your site. Give it a go and let me know how it works for your site!
