I'm seeing this behaviour in one of the websites I manage:

<link href="//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Abril%20Fatface:regular" rel="stylesheet" property="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" /><h1 style="color: #ffffff;text-align: center" class="vc_custom_heading home-title">Some title</h1>

As such, on a page with one H1 and five H2, I am seeing six calls for //fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Abril%20Fatface:regular

The website is based on Wordpress and this behaviour is most likely dictated by the WPBakery plugin.

The question, however, is not a Wordpress or plugin support question, as my interest lies in whether such behaviour is normal in general (but perhaps not a best practice) or it's something that I must address to optimise the page.

  • This question does not appear to be about webmastering within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Sorry but the problem that you have is code related and therefore off-topic on Pro Webmasters. – Simon Hayter Jul 9 '18 at 20:24
  • Seek support from the developer of the plugin or a better solution would be to learn how to enqueue your own styles so that they get added to <head> so that you do need to bloat your WordPress with endless plugins, or you could even use Google Tag Manager, that way all scripts and styles are handled by Google. – Simon Hayter Jul 9 '18 at 20:26
  • Thank you for your answers. However, I'm not interested in learning to develop WP themes or WP plugins, but to understand whether this behaviour is something that's unorthodox / negative in terms of SEO and, thus, needs to be addressed. – Serge Jul 10 '18 at 9:09
