Hubspot web form integration scripts slowing WordPress website speed drasticallySOLVE
Apr 17, 2020 3:02 PM
When integrating Hubspot web forms with my WordPress site, doing so has drastically slowed the load speed of my site, especially when viewed on mobile browsers (adding 11 seconds to the load time, which makes using it untenable unless we can fix the issue).
We believe the issues is that the scripts which generate the web forms can't be deferred. Is there a solution to deferring the form scripts, that will help speed up the load time of the site before the Hubspot forms are loaded?
Or are there other items we can try? Have scoured through the community, found a few somewhat similar issues but those fixes did not help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Haven't tried WP Rocket yet.
We host all our sites on WP Engine so we get a good head start. This link gets you 3 months free hosting if you want to try it (yes, we're a WP Engine Agency too).
We have susbscription for WPMU and so I tried their Humingbird Pro Plugin and was very disappointed, uninstalled. The Smush Pro is worthwhile but their free version isn't very free at all. Also, I've used – and really impressed with – EWWW for image compression.
