Only include the fonts you need (bold/regular/italic). Only including characters you need, such as if you are not using any special characters with accents, etc.. Using CDN's to optimize load time and using fonts that are commonly used that will be in a users cache. but like Olga said, I would take the Web Typography class to learn about the improvements and performance.
