To support the introduction of the online store speed report, the Shopify Community is expanding to provide this dedicated space for merchants and partners to discuss storefront performance.
The new online store speed report runs speed tests for home pages and highest-traffic collection and product pages, and then combines each page’s Google Lighthouse speed score into one speed score, which is shown in the new report. You’ll also get a comparison of how your store’s speed compares to similar businesses.
The more features you have in your store will slow down your speed which means it's helpful to consider how to balance functionality with speed. A high Google Lighthouse score is hard to achieve, and becomes harder to improve as you achieve a higher score. If you want to improve your speed score or ranking, please read our documentation on improving your online store speed for some suggestions on where to start.
If you have questions on these scores, or have insights to share regarding storefront-optimization, please feel free to open a topic here, and contribute to the conversation.
Note: Per the Community Code of Conduct replies that do not provide any value beyond 'I can help, contact me directly' are considered spam and will be removed.
