Performance concerns: First Contentful Paint delays reported from google pagespeed

Hey, this might not be the right place to post this, and I have no idea if this has anything to do with Netlify! So, I put my website on lighthouse (PageSpeed Insights), and it’s complaining about First Contentful Paint (and First Meaningful Paint). I inserted the website name without any https or http or www.

can you say a little more about what the problem is?

Like I said, I’m not sure if this has anything to do with Netlify!
Searching for in gives me this:

I tried and it didn’t seem to present the same problem. Thanks. :slight_smile:

You can certainly preload things if you want; you’d have to configure that. (perhaps using a preload custom header, see for some more details)

Our service does make multiple redirects; that’s intended as we comply with the HSTS spec mentioned here: . They’ll only affect the first visit to the page after which the local browser knows to redirect automatically.

If you enter the https://www url into the google pagespeed insight the error «avoid multiple page redirects» is gone, like so:

As @fool mentioned, this are just normal or expected redirects.


@fool @ndalliard Okay, thanks! :slight_smile:
