How can using Hide My WP Ghost increase site speed?

Hide My WP Ghost enables you to activate certain settings that can improve site speed.

For example:

  • the Hide Emojicons option. (If you don’t use them on your website, you don’t need to load them. Another reason to disable Emojicons is for speed optimization.) More about this here.

  • The Disable Embed scripts option.

oEmbed allows users to embed YouTube videos, tweets, and many other resources on their sites simply by pasting a URL, which WordPress then automatically converts into an embed (also provides a live preview inside the visual editor).

Most of the themes already include this option, so you don’t need to load these scripts anymore.

Another reason to disable oEmbed scripts is for speed optimization. You will notice a significant improvement in your page loading times when these libraries are NOT loaded.
