Yes, consent banners can sometimes cause INP (Interaction to Next Paint) issues. Here are some suggestions to address this:

Optimize the consent banner:

  • Lazy loading: Implement lazy loading for the consent banner code. This means the code only loads when the user scrolls to the part of the page where the banner is located, improving initial load time.
  • Minimize banner size and complexity: Keep the banner lightweight and avoid unnecessary animations or scripts that can slow down loading.
  • Preload critical elements: Preload any critical elements of the banner, like logos or icons, to ensure a smoother rendering experience.

Consider alternative approaches:

  • Cookie consent management platform: Use a cookie consent management platform that offers a more efficient way to handle consent without impacting performance. These platforms often have optimized code and features to minimize INP issues.
  • Opt-out mechanism: Explore using an opt-out mechanism instead of an opt-in. This way, the website loads without the banner initially, and users can choose to manage their preferences later.

Test and measure:

  • Continuously test: Regularly test your website’s performance with and without the consent banner to identify any bottlenecks and measure the impact of optimizations.
  • INP monitoring: Use tools to monitor INP metrics and track the effectiveness of your solutions.
