the coming google debacle

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I hope Europe wins and that America follows suit.

meanwhile, all my sites get this from the (bogus) google online evaluation pages. interested in your suggestions.

on the first site i tested it on, it prevented the zentools banner from loading - just had a white space. the page speed score was faster, but....

I confirmed this result on actual mobile and desktop devices.

But the part that Google is looking for - mobile experience - scored without the plugin. I'm going to make the social edge module hidden-xs, which may take care of the small tap targets cautionary.

Interesting - so it's working properly?

Loading scripts at the bottom requires a lot of finetuning in experience.

Thanks

I see there is an excludes list in the advanced tab - so I excluded the zentools js so it loads at the top. Valid regex for exclusion is /zentools/, which is all that was needed.

Final score:
With scripts to bottom (excluding zentools) 54/100
With scripts to bottom disabled 54/100
(Though in reality, the site loads noticeably faster)

this google garbage is bullhockey. this is what free markets are for. it appears they think they own the internet, and I'm thinking it would be better if they came up pinned to the mat on Europe v Google
