Rank Math is slowing Down my Website

  • Rank math is slowing down my website. I tested my website with Pingdom and in the load time breakdown, it shows the line below-
    /wp-content/plugins/seo-by-rank-math/assets/vendor/font-awesome/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff2?v=4.7.0
    According to Pingdom, it is taking about 1339.0 ms.
    Please help

  • Hello,

    Thanks a lot for your query and we are so sorry about the trouble this must have caused.

    When I visit that URL on your website, I am getting an access denied message. Please check your CloudFlare settings and make sure you aren’t blocking certain file types.

    Also, you are only seeing that file getting loaded because you are showing the ratings on the frontend. Otherwise, Rank Math doesn’t load any files on the frontend.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Sorry, Todd,
    It was my mistake. I have set up some firewall rules in Cloudflare to protect my website. So if I remove the review schema it should be fine?

    Hello,

    No, you don’t need to disable the schema. You can still use the review snippet benefits in Google SERPs even if it is not being displayed on the frontend (and then not loading font-awesome to display those review stars).

    To do that, just set your Review Location field as Custom and don’t add its shortcode anywhere on the website so it won’t be shown but the post will still have the snippet metadata and Font Awesome won’t be loaded.

    Looking forward to help you.
