We started using Algolia as a replacement for our internal API because we noticed it was much faster with its ~2ms response time. However as we start using it that way in more and more parts of our site we notice that response times are going up.
Here’s an example of how we use it: https://www.hackster.io/arduino You can see that the page is divided in multiple sections/rows, and each section is a request to Algolia. As you scroll down more sections load up. Tabs under https://www.hackster.io/arduino/projects and https://www.hackster.io/arduino/products also use Algolia for backend.
If you go to the main page and scroll down with the inspector open, you might notice that response times are far from the 2ms we got used to. Does anyone have tips and tricks and how to make it load really fast?
