Hi,

 

my website is https://www.potti.hk/.

 

But my page loading speed is very slow. Can anyone tell me why my site is so slow and how can I solve the problems?

It loads super fast for me

 

Try Page Speed Optimizer app - which doesnt speed up first page but speeds up the next page clicked be pre-loading assets

 

I wouldnt worry too much about the load time - its better to keep the high quality banner images looking crisp which is gunna have a little bit of a drag on page load.  You could look at asynchronous loading / lazy loading etc, but I dont think you need waste your time TBH - the payoff wont be much at all

Hi @Ammar9

Congratulations on a great website - you've done a fantastic job!

It doesn't seem too slow to me when using it, could you talk me through why it is you think it is slow? If you're using Shopify's own Online Store Speed report then there are a few factors you can't control but then there are also factors that you can control. For example:

1. If you have several apps on your site that inject javascript into the theme, then that code can slow the loading of your site. If you think that an app is slowing down your store, then take the following steps:

Disable app features you don't use or remove the app if you don't need it. Consider the balance between online store features and speed.

If you're removing an app, then consider removing code that was added as part of the app install process. Some apps help you with this process by wrapping their code in {% comment %} tags that mention the app name.

2. Oversized images and images that are hidden from view can interfere with loading other, more important parts of a page. If users have to wait for large images to load, they might perceive your store to be slow.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions!

@Ammar9 ,

Yes your store score is very low, as I have checked.

 Low mobile page speed may kill your traffic and affect your conversion.

 

3rd party apps & codes which take time to load and their size . They decrease the speed.

 

Need to work on following points 

  • Theme Upgrade if there is a scope and upgraded theme available
  • Reduce JS Payload.
  • Use Critical CSS .
  • Reduce Large Image Sizes
  • Compress Images
  • Limit Third Party JavaScript & Shopify Apps
  • Preload Web Fonts. 
  • I would suggest limiting to one and using a standard web font.

 

By fixing these issues, your website speed score can definitely improve.

And we will provide an assured guarantee plan for the website speed optimization.
