how can i solve this font loading issue?

January 21, 2015 1.1k views

my site opens quite fast but i m having little problem with the fonts. i m not a pro so cant figure how can i solve it. i have installed my site with a purchased theme. and im on nginx/ ubuntu 14.04

if you see the following link, u can see my site loads nearly within 1.5 sec accept the fonts which make the loading to complete nearly in 4.5 sec. around 2 to 2.5 sec only for fonts doesn’t make any sense right?

also when my site loads in slow connection speed i can see fonts changes 2/3 times before it comes to the actual font style.


so i was wondering if i could load all the fonts from own server instead using google api.

any suggestions????

  • Yes, you could do that. What suggestions were you looking for?

  • Better yet: use a standard font like Arial, Georgia, or Times Roman.

    Might not be as fancy, but will certainly speed things up

  • Hello,
    thanks for your answer.

    but so far i heard that google fonts usually dont take that long. not at least 2.5 sec i believe.
