Hi @emmadavido 

I ran your homepage through our Shopify Analyzer (a free analysis tool we built for the Shopify community) and it's scoring great! You can check out your report here: https://analyze.speedboostr.com/result/fy4g5eoig3

Beyond the actual scores, I've navigated around your site and it also loads and performs extremely well. You may see a slight drop in speed or performance by moving to Shopify since you're going to have some of Shopify's code running in the background. Plus, if you have any apps installed, those will also affect performance.

Overall though, your site seems to be performing quite well.

Hi @emmadavido 

This is PageFly - a Free Shopify Landing Page Builder. I would love to provide my recommendation for your store based on 5 years of providing solutions for over 90.000 active Shopify merchants.

So I've just run a quick test of your store in the Google Page Speed Insights, here's the result https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmyketonews.com%2F&tab=desk...

1. On desktop, the score is quite good, 87-89, but there are 2 main things you should notice

  • Leverage the font-display CSS feature to ensure text is user-visible while web fonts are loading.

  • Some images do not have explicit width and height: You need to set an explicit width and height on image elements to reduce layout shifts and improve CLS (Cumulative Layout Shift)

2. On mobile, the score is lower

  • Remove unused Javascript: To defer unused CSS, you can remove unused rules from stylesheets to reduce unnecessary bytes consumed by network activity. You can try Lazy Loading as well to reduce loading time all at once. PageFly does offer this feature as default when building a page. 
  • Minify Javascript: These files determine your site’s appearance – like the clothing and shoes that you wear – so it’s vital to run them through some quality filters.

    Let’s start with reducing the size of each file and the total number of files. This task includes removing unnecessary formatting, whitespace, and code. You can use this tool https://javascript-minifier.com/

Above are my recommendations for your store. If you feel my answer helpful, like it or give it a thumb up. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!

PageFly.
