Template causes extreme Cumulative Shift Layout

Post by NeilSTSRecycle » Wed Apr 14, 2021 10:17 pm

Hello all,

This is Neil Dayton of marketing at STS Electronic Recycling, Inc. and I am posting on this forum because the template for our homepage at https://www.stselectronicrecyclinginc.com/ creates an unacceptable amount of Cumulative Layout Shift, a key metric which Google uses in it's SEO algorithm.

Contained in this message is a video of the issue. The download and upload speed have been throttled for the sake of clarity. Please let me know if there is anything besides login credentials that I need to supply, and I will do so to the best of my ability.

This template was purchased from https://agethemes.com/. We've already reached out to them for support but have only received broken-english responses that we cannot decipher. However, through debugging we believe the issues lies with the template. I'm hoping for more luck from this forum, so if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Neil Dayton

To correct this issue it may be necessary to rearrange the whole html and css structure. That is serious work I think.

One another thing: According to the CLS Calculator on this page (https://layoutstability.rocks/) your site produces a 0.232 value that is between 0.1-0.25 and it is acceptable.
