I'm looking for suggestions to help me improve my sites speed. Current score 25. I've tried using the google speed test but I don't understand the results or how to fix them.
Any suggestions are appreciated,
Welcome to the Shopify Community!
This is Syed Mustafa a professional Shopify Developer. As I'm sure you well know, page speed has become a factor for ranking in the search engines. That's why if you're investing lots of time and money into getting the rankings you deserve, you shouldn't be blowing it by having a slow website.
Longer load times have also been shown to negatively affect conversions.

I am Victor from PageFly - Page Builder and I would love to share with you my recommendations based on my conversion rate experience.
We all know that page speed affects every business metric you care about. It can win sales in a blink of an eye or turn visitors away quickly and for many years in the e-commerce CRO field, I have some solutions.
1. Understand generally the performance scoring
This article above helps you to understand that Google provides how page speed insights create its score. You can see in this article how the score is calculated and you will be provided all links to all the metrics. The PSI calculates the score based on the universal average for user connection loading time/ speed and it's the global average.
Make sure you read this help documentation from Shopify about page speed optimization.
2. Use other tools to measure
3. Optimize image loading times
4. Convert images to the next-gen format
5. Minify files
6. Defer unused CSS
Prioritize above-the-fold content (Lazy load) When using the Lazy load, customers don't have to wait to access the page and the images load as they come into view.
Above are my recommendations for your store and it's really important to customize attractive and unique pages to increase conversion rate.
If you feel my answer helpful, like it or mark as a solution. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!
Hi Syed! We need help too! Our site is: ecobasics.online
We used to have a Debut theme developed by Shopify, and in the middle of last September we bought a Streamline theme in order to optimize the store. Our main goal is to maximize conversion rate through a flexible and faster site. Until now, we completely failed with our objectives.
Our concern is mainly to improve Page Speed, so therefore we can increase conversion rate.
