How does federated search impact website loading times and overall performance?

Asked 9 months ago

Hi everyone. I'm thinking of implementing federated search on my website but I'm worried it will slow down site speed and loading times. Does anyone have experience with this?

Federated search can impact website loading times and performance due to the need to query multiple external sources simultaneously. Increased API calls, network latency, and data retrieval may lead to longer load times. Implementing caching mechanisms and optimizing API calls can mitigate these issues, ensuring a smoother user experience. Moreover, conduct thorough testing to assess the actual impact on your site before making a decision.
