Speed Score of 24

Hi all,

    I am receiving a very low speed score on my site https://poweruppets.com/ .  I believe this is being caused by the video on my home which is uploaded through YouTube.  I tried compressing it but it is still slow.  I believe that I may also be having issues with JavaScript but I don't even know where to begin by fixing that.  Could someone please take a look and point me in the right direction?

TIA!

Hello Rachel,

Welcome to the Shopify Community!

This is Ahmed Alam a professional Shopify Developer from Techmaa. As I'm sure you well know, page speed has become a factor for ranking in 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.

“My Aim” is to optimize the website speed up to 90% on any device. It’s helpful to the visitor who visits your website and spends much time without annoyance. I've gone through your website speed details and the reason behind why the website is slow is that there are lots of unused code of Javascript and CSS that's why your website loading speed time is more than 20 seconds and slow speed means that you are losing your potential customers and profit so it's a work that can be done by custom coding and I am professionally able to do this for you.

Thanks and Best Regards.

@PowerUpPets here are a few things you can do to improve your performance:

1) Your email popup loaded immediately, during page load. Set your email popup to load on delay, rather than immediately (this will also prevent penalization from Google for having an instant popup).

2) Compress your images so that they are lighter in weight (but still maintain the same resolution). Here are warnings I found about images not compressed: https://analyze.speedboostr.com/result/fx05keaipi/rule/imageOptimization (and here is the link to the full analysis of your store: https://analyze.speedboostr.com/result/fx05keaipi).

Here's how to compress images: https://speedboostr.com/how-to-compress-images-on-shopify.

3) If you want to prevent the video from contributing to the initial page load, you can "lazy load" it so the video loads when the user scrolls down the page. Here's a guide on lazy loading: https://speedboostr.com/shopify-lazy-loading. You can use the tactics explained there to lazy load the video. If you're not familiar with code, your developer can handle that.

If you prefer to hand this project off to professional Shopify optimization developers, feel free to reach out to my team at speedboostr.com/contact. We've optimized over 1,000 Shopify sites, and built the first Shopify performance analysis tool (that I linked above).

If you're handling in house, this is a good thorough guide to have your team go through: https://speedboostr.com/shopify-optimization.

Thank you.  I tried disabling my pop up and compressing images but it did not help.  It appears it's mainly on the back end with extra script and the video.  I am not comfortable handling that on my own so I will reach out to you through your website.

there are many things that can be improved to speed up your site as explained by the other members.

However I think the video is of the most "killing" speed features on homepage, you need to hire a developer to either lazyload it ot use a poster on the video, this way the video will only load on click, the best example is the plak theme video feature
