Hello Sharn ,

You need to work on your website performance’s speed. Low mobile page speed may kill your traffic and affect your conversion.

In order to Improve website speed we need to:
- Remove unnecessary code on a high priority basis.
- Compressed images or Defer offscreen images.
- Web Pages need to be Minified.
- Reduce JavaScript execution time
- Minimize main-thread work
- Beware of excessive liquid loops
- Decrease thumbnail image size
- Weigh the benefits of installing another app


By fixing these issues, your website speed score can definitely improve. For more details please check and select the plan you wish to select -

 Hi @Sharn,

I've been checking your store using Pagespeed and there's a lot of unused JAVA Script and CSS code, which makes the page heavier than it's supposed to be. Please remove that. There are also other problems that you could address, please check it here: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsaharablueco.com%2F

Based on my experience, there are some tips I think would help you in optimizing your store speed:

- Reduce redirects from pages to pages

- Minimize the number of JavaScript and CSS files

- Enable compression (Use Gzip, a software application for file compression, to reduce the size of your CSS, HTML, and JavaScript files that are larger than 150 bytes.)

- Minimize the size of your images (using tinypng.com or any tools)

Hope these things could help you to better your store speed. If you think this comment is helpful for you please give me a like or mark it as solution

This is an accepted solution.

@Sharn it looks like the slider is taking up a considerable load time, both in actual load time and perceived load time (waiting for the images to show). A quick win you can implement is to remove the heavy slider + its code, and replace with a single banner image.

You also have some syntax and loading errors:

I would fix all those. Sometimes they're harmless, sometimes they cause load issues and layout glitches. If you're not familiar with console errors, this guide will help: https://speedboostr.com/finding-and-fixing-console-errors/

Other than that, your site looks pretty good. You can easily check now and in the future to see if there are optimization issues by running your pages through the Shopify Analyzer. That's a free tool my team of Shopify optimization pros built for the community. There are recommended levels geared specifically for Shopify, plus resources to solve any issues.

Last note, since oscprofessional posted I have to give you a warning, they've been caught stealing and breaking Shopify terms of service on multiple occasions (reference: https://speedboostr.com/shopify-partners-caught-stealing). Could be dangerous giving them access to your business.

Thankyou for giving me a answer I can easily understand . And now that I think about it this makes sense since my store was faster before I changed it to a sliding banner. Also thanks for the warning .
