Google Reviews causes bad pagespeed insights results


Two month ago I install the Google Reviews widget for my website. Before that, i had a good score in Pagespeed Insights.

Now, when I look the pagespeed I see that the score has decreased because the load of the widget is too slow.

I put the Lazy Load in the div and the platform.js is in my hosting (to avoid the time load), but isn’t enough, almost 700ms for load the Google-Reviews.js

The site is, you will see the google reviews widget in the footer.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Omananda! Welcome to Community :wave:

I am so sorry about this issue!

Let me speak with our devs to see how we can correct this for you. I will get back to you once I receive any updates.

Have a great day :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you Max.

I put a new image. Here you can see the impact on CPU load time, more of 3s

I wait your updates :slight_smile:

Hi @Omananda :wave:

Thank you for waiting!

You can try to use the code below instead to make the widget appear only if it’s visible:

<div class="elfsight-app-bbcd85f7-3aca-47e5-a6cb-88e3a689477e" data-elfsight-app-lazy="in-viewport"></div>

Please check it and let me know if it helped :slightly_smiling_face:

Amazing Max, problem solved. Thank you very much!! Good job :slight_smile:


It’s the least I could do!

Have a great day :wink:
