    Guys, can you please invest some time into reducing the size of core.js? it’s few 100s of kbs. That’s unacceptable if one would like to get a good SEO score

    Hi @roireshef thank you for the feedback!
    We’ll see if we can improve this.
    In the meantime, one thing that will already be available in the next update, is the option to load the file asynchronous, which helps a lot in SEO.
    Greetings, Carlos

    Hi Carlos,

    @carlosmoreirapt thanks for replying and the async feature. It’s definitely a step in the right direction, although it doesn’t help Google PSI score, so no real effect on SEO eventually.

    What about lazy loading the shortcode contents? It might just be a low hanging fruit: https://stackoverflow.com/a/24803974/2230041
    It already works like a charm for other features in my website, but your plugin’s code is a bit more involved…

    I think what could also be valuable is reducing the depth of the DOM for the map. Seems like there are some redundancy there with the numerous divs.

    Bests,
    Roi

    Hi Roi
    Thank you for the feedback once again. There’s also an option to enable lazy loading, together with the async option in the settings page. I understand that the maps generate a lot of DOM elements, but consider the plugin uses an external maps library that was not developed by me, I just have a license to redistribute it in my plugin. So there’s only as much I can do in terms of improving the library itself. But obviously I can pass any feedback to the library authors and see what can be improved.
    Cheers, Carlos
