I am setting up google ads and GA4 through Zaraz and enabled it briefly to check all is firing before I remove script from my html headers, however while it was enabled my site was really slow - I understand that if I had removed the script it should have been faster but I had paused all ad campaigns. I then disabled Zaraz and noticed that my site speed is still really slow. I then cleared all cache from site and cloudflare and it was still loading really slowly.
My server response time is over 7.5 seconds! Does anyone know how would I check whether it may coincidentally be an issue with the servers in South Africa and not related to the Zaraz set up? I even deleted the google and meta scripts and the server response time was still the same. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
