Great question! Store speed refers to how quickly the pages on your store load and become interactive for your visitors. It's crucial as it affects both the user experience and your store's SEO rankings. Here are some ways to improve your store speed on Shopify:
Optimize Images and Videos:
Minimize Third-party Apps:
Optimize Your Theme:
Reduce Server Requests and Minify Files:
Regular Speed Tests:
To effortlessly monitor and improve these aspects, you might want to consider using WebVitality. It's a tailored tool for Shopify merchants to gain insights into real user metrics, including Core Web Vitals like Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) that are crucial for understanding and improving store speed.
One of the great things about WebVitality is that installing it has a negligible effect on your site speed. The script used to track these metrics is very small and loaded asynchronously after the page load, prioritizing your store’s performance. So, you get valuable insights without compromising on speed.
Feel free to check it out and start your journey towards a faster, better store!
