Hello @sahar5 ,

A poor visual stability score in your Shopify account indicates unexpected layout shifts while your website loads. This can create a frustrating user experience. Here are some strategies to optimize your website's visual stability and improve your score:

Identify the Culprits:

  • Shopify Web Performance Dashboard: Use the Shopify Web Performance Dashboard to get more details about what's causing the layout shifts. It might highlight specific elements like images or ads that are causing the issue.

Image Optimization:

  • Resize Images: Ensure all images used on your website are resized to their appropriate dimensions before uploading them to Shopify. This reduces the file size and minimizes the time it takes for them to load.
  • Consider Lazy Loading: Shopify themes might offer built-in lazy loading functionality or allow you to implement it with JavaScript. Lazy loading delays the loading of images outside the viewport (what the user sees without scrolling) until they are needed, improving initial page load speed.

Other Techniques:

  • Reserve Space for Elements: If you have elements that take a long time to load (like ads or embedded content), use CSS techniques like width and height properties to reserve space for them in the layout. This prevents other content from shifting around while they load.
  • Minimize Use of Flashing Content: Avoid using elements that blink or change size rapidly, as this can be visually distracting and contribute to instability.
  • Font Optimization: Use web fonts with proper fallbacks to ensure fonts load consistently and don't cause layout shifts.

Theme Considerations:

  • Theme Code Review: If you're comfortable with code, review your theme code (especially the theme.liquid file) for any scripts or functionalities that might be causing layout shifts.

Third-party Apps:

  • Temporarily Disable Apps: If you have recently installed any third-party apps, try temporarily disabling them to see if the visual stability improves. Some apps might inject scripts or modify the layout in ways that can cause instability.
    • Prioritize Viewport Content: Focus on optimizing the initial content that loads within the user's viewport for the best user experience.
    • Test and Monitor: After implementing changes, test your website on different devices and browsers to ensure they render correctly. Use tools like Google PageSpeed Insights to monitor your visual stability score.

    By implementing these strategies and tools, you can improve your website's visual stability on Shopify, leading to a better user experience and potentially higher search engine rankings.
