Understanding the Impact

Your website’s performance can vary significantly depending on the region. This section helps you understand the difference between its operation for Global Visitors and for China Visitors.

Essential resources such as CSS and JavaScript files are crucial for your website to function properly. If these resources perform poorly (graded as C, D, or E), your website may not work as expected. This is particularly important for eCommerce websites (like Shopify, WooCommerce, and others), which heavily rely on these resources for key functions.

The following figures illustrate the stark contrast:

  • "Global Visitors": This shows your website when all critical resources are loading properly, ensuring optimal functionality for users outside of China.
  • "China Visitors": This depicts the potential issues when these resources are blocked or slow to load in China, leading to significant disruptions in your website’s performance for users in this region.

Understanding this impact is crucial for business owners looking to provide a seamless user experience across different regions. It’s important to take steps to ensure your website is accessible worldwide, including in China.
