Render Blocking Resource


What can be done about the following?

The site rates at 96 overall but this parameter rates 26 and only one item is listed. Ironically its an asset of Hummingbird.

What can we do?

Resources IMPROVE
Your page has 1 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.

None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

    Hello SooBahkDo

    The above mentioned asset is a combination of CSS files that Hummingbird has determined can be compressed and combined. In order to move this to the footer, all assets (css files) would have to be set to move to footer. However, this doesn't always work well depending on your plugins and theme. Some assets should be loaded from the header rather than the footer for optimal performance and rendering.

    While it's recommended to reduce the number of render-blocking resources as much as possible, the truth is, some plugins and themes just do not work right with these assets moved.

    Your overall score of 96 is excellent (anything over 90 is very good). This one asset being loaded in the header should not negatively affect your site's performance and certainly would not have a detrimental affect in Google.

    Best regards,
