    Unhappy Delay between final requests in GTmetrix waterfall

    Hi all,

    I'm new here, hoping there is someone that would be able to help me with my page speed. The problem is consistent across all pages on our site but our homepage is an easy example.

    We are preparing for core web vitals and have managed to get our LCP down to an acceptable level for now. However, we are having trouble with our total load time.

    Between the final 2 simultaneous requests, there is an approx 3 second delay before the Recapture request happens, according to the waterfall, seen here:

    Would anyone be able to advise on best practices with an issue like thisHomepage Waterfall Recapture Delay.jpg, and suggest any workarounds that would suit our circumstances?

    Recapture have said that their tool is not the issue but I just can't understand how anything else could be the issue in this instance.

    Thanks for your help in advance, I appreciate it.

    I wouldn't ever really just test one tool, gt metrix is great, but it needs to be used in conjunction with other tools such as web page speed test .org which shows ALOT of reader blocking resources on your website. Also, lighthouse and even network tools in deliver mode on chrome will give you additional info.

    You have a ton of HTTP requests many causing some of your resources to wait, this could be part of what's happening - just do a test with these guys https://www.webpagetest(dot)org/ I think this may help you see another point of view that can assist in your problem.

    On a site note, Captacha is known to cost site speed time. Also it should load sooner as somebody could use a form before captcha is even loaded.Bots.

    Sorry just checked the date on this.
