MailChimp & speed

WordPress Mobile Speed

Isolate MailChimp overhead to only the signup page with selective activation. You’re doing things right for speed with a gateway signup page. Now we just need to switch off global loading.

If you have a MailChimp signup on your homepage, our recommendation is having the signup form on a separate page with an image link – or even better offsite at MailChimp. This we call inter-site offloading. It keeps the API off of critical pages. We do this regularly on rebuilds but it is your call. This is a tune up and not a rebuild. The value question is: “How many MailChimp email signups do you get from the homepage each month?” The server wait probably slows loads by 300 to 500 milliseconds.

  • Hosting

  • Images and media library.
