How to Set up Carousel Content for Lazy Loading

One of the reasons why sites on RebelMouse are able to score 90 or higher on Google's PageSpeed Insights tool is through our lazy-loading functionality. Lazy loading ensures that only the most critical content is loaded first when a user clicks onto a page.

However, if you have a carousel-style layout for content inside of a Lazy Load element in our Layout & Design Tool, it will not display:

This is how the carousel should be displayed:

Here's how the incorrect setup looks like in Layout & Design Tool:

The issue here is that carousel JavaScript is wrapped in lazy-javascript by default. So when you lazy load a carousel, that code never turns into an actual script and the carousel does not load. To fix this, we have to initiate the lazy-loaded carousels manually. This means that the carousel content should be taken out of the Lazy Load element and positioned with custom JavaScript after lazy loading is completed.

Here's how the setup looks in the Layout & Design tool:

Here's an example of how the carousel should display:

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
