Hey!

I'm trying to speed up my webpage but there is not much more I know how to do outside of taking content out. I rated ok on pingdom, but had a pathetic rating on google developers, which I do not quite understand.. 

My site is www.GratefullyDyed.com

Pingdon gave me a 72% C and said I was faster than about 68% of sites. 

https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/PfPtW/www.gratefullydyed.com

Goodle devoloper gave me under a 20 before I removed a few things. Now I am at 20-30, which is worrying me.

If you think you can take care of my speed issues please send me a message and we can discuss what you would need from me to do it. 

Thanks and happy holidays!

Hey Damon,

You'll want to look at a couple things:

1) Optimizing images

2) Calling on smaller images from Shopify

3) Moving any javascript files that you can into the footer of your page. You have quite a bit of stuff that is loaded before your page can begin rendering which will hurt you in all these pagespeed tests.

I'd wager that those three items will present a pretty nice jump in your score(s).

HI Damen,

Speaking of images, I see that you have about 90 of them loading all at once on your home page. My app, Lazy Image , is designed to handle exactly this situation.. It can automatically manage your images so that they don't load until they are needed, reducing your load time by quite a bit (especially in this case, with so many images below the fold).

Good luck!

Hi Damen,

I wrote a blog post about optimizing Google PageSpeed score for one of my clients. 

Please feel free to drop me a message if you are interested to optimize your site's theme.

Thanks,

Michael
