Optimizations get thrown out the window

As soon as they reach end users…

“Google says my page is slow. “

Me: you have 5-6 5MB images loading. One is 10 MB.

“Yes, but can you optimize 5k of CSS?”

Me: you have scripts for YouTube, Facebook, Google, and 5 other ad networks loading first.

“We need those, but google said you’re only using 20% of the code”

Me: You are also using 7 different fonts and have 5 YouTube videos trying to autoplay.

“Those are for conversions! We’re going to find a faster platform. “

Me: ok.
