2. Compress Images or Serve Next-Gen Images

The media files used in the blog should be lightweight. You may consider compressing the image before uploading it. This practice will drastically improve the speed of the Blogger blog.

Suppose you’ve uploaded an image of 1MB to your blog, and the user’s internet speed is 30kB, then it will take approximately 35 seconds to load the image only. At the same time, if the image size is 60kB, it will take only 2 seconds. So for a slow network connection, the speed will increase approximately 18 times.

3. Remove Unnecessary Widget.

Suppose you’re using a lot of widgets for the Blogger blog. It would be best if you remove unused or unnecessary widgets. For example, some website uses Facebook page widget on their website. However, the Facebook Page widget reduces the speed of Blogger blog. Therefore, we advise you to remove this widget.

You can create a Contact Us form page for the Blogger blog replacing the Contact Us form widget. As a result, it will reduce the size of every page that will enhance the page speed score. Suppose you use any third-party widget for the blog. Then try to add such widgets in the footer section to avoid the render-blocking and speed up the Blogger blog.

4. Remove Unused JS and CSS.

Blogger generates some javascript and CSS files for the legacy template. But in modern templates, this CSS and JS are not used and reserve extra space. Unfortunately, these CSS files also cause render-blocking to the page. So it would be best if you considered removing these tags.

5. Don’t use too many fonts.

Too many fonts take a lot of time to load from the internet. So consider using the system fonts or load-only required fonts. You can also use font: display style while loading the font to swap properties. This practice will improve the stability and enhance the Cumulative Layout Display score of the website.

If you can’t understand the above term, try to load only 1 or 2 fonts for your website. This will enhance the speed of the Blogger blog.

6. Adsense Slowing down the website speed.

After getting the Adsense Approval, you can make money with your Blogger blog. But at the same time, Adsense slows down your website. And there are various methods available to speed up your website but not with Adsense.

I tried a lot of ways to speed up the Blogger blog but can’t see any effect. My website PageSpeed Insights score with and without Adsense always remains near 94 and 31, respectively.
