Hi, 

Here are the main points I noticed which can help to improve the page speed - 

  1. Some of the images can be optimized further. Try to resize them (img_url : "" ) to right dimensions will reduce the size.
  2. A lot of render blocking CSS, only put links in the head which are critical.
  3. Big CLS because of the slideshow images, this affects lighthouse score and UX as well.
  4. Heavy bytes of JS, remove the apps which are not very important.

Hope, this will help.

Thank you.

Thanks but I don't understand which areas you mean specifically so that's not much help. I get the slide show thing but the rest is totally over my head. Thanks anyway.

Hi,

Here are few things which can be done without digging into the code files. 1. Only use as few as slideshow images (also product images) and compress them with any online tool.  2. Remove unused Shopify apps installed in the store.  

Hope, this will help.

Thank you.

Hello @QuinnAndLane 
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.

“My Aim” is to optimize the website speed and get the best possible results. 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 your website is much slow the reason behind why the website is slow is that there are lots of unused code of Javascript and CSS plus lots of unoptimized images as well that's why your website loading speed is slow and currently it's in D category 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.

Drop your reply at Syedmustafanadeem99@gmail.com and let's start this project as soon as possible.

Hello @QuinnAndLane 

I recommend you take some time to read the information that Google has on how pagespeed insights creates it's score.

The metrics scores and the perf score are colored according to these ranges:

  • 0 to 49 (red): Poor
  • 50 to 89 (orange): Needs Improvement
  • 90 to 100 (green): Good

To provide a good user experience, sites should strive to have a good score (90-100). A "perfect" score of 100 is extremely challenging to achieve and not expected. 

However, there are factors that affect store speed that you can and cannot control. What you CANNOT control are: your customer's device, network, and location, content delivery network (CDN), local browser cache, server-side page cache and the assets inside the content_for_header Liquid tag. What you  CAN control includes: apps, theme, images and videos, complex or inefficient Liquid code, font etc.

Please check this detailed guide: https://pagefly.link/drgtBbam We'll walk you through step by step to optimize your page speed. I promise it’s easy and it works.

 

If you find that guide is helpful. Please like to let me know and mark solution to helps other with this source of knowledge

 

Thanks you and best of luck!
