    Leverage browser caching for GoCentral sites

    I'm getting poor loading times reported in PageSpeed Insights reports for a GoCentral site, with the following comment:

     

    This rule triggers when PageSpeed Insights detects that the response from your server does not include caching headers or if the resources are specified to be cached for only a short time.

     

    I know GoCentral sites are not very flexible but is this something that can be resolved? If so, how?

    Hi @pvrooman,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    Most third-party speed sites don't do well at evaluating the closed system of the Website Builder. While @ZulWeb's advice is excellent for regular websites, you don't have control over many of those elements for the Website Builder. 

     

    If you have inserted HTML on any of the pages, they should be kept to only what's necessary for your function. You'll want to be sure the photos/images you upload are sized close to the finished use, before they're uploaded. This saves the browser from working to down-size on every visit. You may also want to keep from having your pages be too long, opting instead to break them down into separate pages with a link in the menu.
