Google Fonts. Every WordPress blogger uses them. It’s an easy — if not the easiest — way to improve your blog’s looks. Pagespeed Insights. We’ve all heard of that too. And we all want to achieve the highest possible score. Both are brought to you by the same entity we’ve come to know, love — and hate: Google. Love, because they gave us these beautiful fonts. Hate, because as soon as we use them, it lowers our score on Pagespeed Insights!
Today I’m showing you how you can achieve the best of both worlds:
- Maintain your high score on Pagespeed Insights by leveraging your browser cache, and
- Keep using your Google Fonts by hosting them locally.
And I promise you, it couldn’t be easier.
