How to Eliminate Render-Blocking Resources

How to Eliminate Render-Blocking Resources

If you run a WooCommerce store, you don’t want visitors landing on your shop page only to be greeted with a blank white screen. This happens when users aren’t able to see any content on your website due to render-blocking issues. They’ll see content when it finishes downloading.

This not only causes visitors to bounce off your website immediately but also makes your website appear to be broken. Most site visitors will only stick around for about 2 seconds waiting for content to show up on their screens. After that, they’ll bounce off and, most likely, never come back.

Picture this: you visit a website and instead of seeing a well-crafted homepage you find no content, just a blank screen. This can happen due to largest contentful paint element issues.

How to solve the "Avoid an excessive DOM size" warning

If you’re reading this article, chances are you’ve run into an “Avoid an excessive DOM size” warning from Google Lighthouse.

Your webpage has a large DOM size if it has too many DOM nodes or HTML tags or if these nodes or tags are nested too deep. This can lead to site performance issues such as jerky scrolling and slow page loading times. On the other hand, an optimized DOM size offers a better user experience, leading to increased conversions.

If you’ve added superficial CSS3 animations or JavaScript widgets to your website, it might be experiencing the effects of a large DOM size.
