Lazy Load to improve Google Ranking

With Google’s new Core Vitals being so important, a lazy load feature would be very helpful. This could be done through a WordPress plugin.

Hello folks!

Big news is coming — lazy load beta version for embedded widgets is here! :heart_eyes:

It doesn’t work as a built-in option yet due to a couple of unresolved matters, but you can adjust your widget manually in order to make it work :slight_smile:

To turn it on, please add the “data-elfsight-app-lazy” attribute to a

element in your installation code.

For example, here’s how the code looks like initially:

<script src="" defer></script>
<div class="elfsight-app-9d3beb9e-XXXX-4bd1-8ed6-c192fXXXXXX"></div>

And here’s how it should look like with the attribute added:

<script src="" defer></script>
<div class="elfsight-app-9d3beb9e-XXXX-4bd1-8ed6-c192fXXXXXX" data-elfsight-app-lazy></div>

Please keep in mind that it will work only for widgets which are not in the initial viewport (e.g. users have to scroll down at least for a little bit before they reach the widget).

Please do let us know if it worked on your end :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi folks!

I’m closing this request since the solution described above does resolve the issue :slight_smile:
