I own https://www.lakdi.com I tried all possible way to improve my website load time but I failed. I am honestly saying I am not the developer. But we are using approx. 12 apps of Shopify for functionality on website, we can't compromise on it.

If any one there please guide us what we do for improve my website. I contacted many times Shopify support but all time they are saying you are using third party theme or apps so you can contact your theme developer or app developer or we can generate a ticket on behalf of you. But I am sorry nothing happed after.

 

So after many try I am putting my query here, if anyone can help. Yours suggestions always considerable.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Lakdi 

This is PageFly - Landing Page Builder. I would love to provide my recommendations for your store based on 6 years of providing solutions for about 100.000 active Shopify merchants.

 

I actually tried to browse your store on my phone & laptop and I found the speed isn't bad, my experience on the site is good in terms of the speed (I browsed your store with our office wifi).

 

Based on our experience, page performance is always a balance between the technical optimizations which don’t affect user experience, design or the UX, analyze and test. So we don't aim at 100/100 score on Google speed insights, but on the user experience which you may use some user behavior tool like Hotjar or Fullstory (I list the famous tool names but you can find others), they will help you view what your customers are actually seeing and how they interact with your site).

 

Other suggestions would be:

- Optimize the images: since you said that you've tried many ways, I guest that you have tried optimizing the images already, but if you haven't, you can try the mention tools in this guide (they can help you reduce the image weight without losing image quality)

- Apply Lazy loading (a strategy to identify resources as non-blocking (non-critical) and load these only when needed): You can find the guide on the internet, using a service or build your store with Page Builder like PageFly, we have Lazy option to enable with 1 click.

- Optimize code: For example, I found a 404 file https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0491/2165/6981/t/20/assets/ndnapps-sociallogin-script.js?8062 on your product page https://www.lakdi.com/collections/2-seater-sofa/products/lakdi-2-seater-velvet-sofa-with-metal-legs-... with a page speed tool. Since you're not a developer, I think finding a trust developer or service to help you remove / defer unused code would be extremely help.

 

Finally, I have 1 suggest which isn't very much about page speed but it's based on my experience on your site: Reduce the number of products showing on a row.

- The home page is currently so busy with small images & text, and with many products on the page, all the product images will be loaded along with the page and slow down page speed

I suggest you reduce the number of products show at the 1st load to 4 products, which can give them a larger space to shine.

 

Above is all my suggestions, I hope they are useful. If you think they are, please let me know by giving it a Like. Thank you!

 

PageFly.

Hello @Lakdi,


You can follow the below steps to significantly speed up your Shopify store:

 

1. Removing unused app code is a best practice that avoids running code for unused features and makes your theme code easier to read.
2. Use a theme that is optimized for performance
3. Themes contain CSS, JS, and HTML which can increase and affect your store speed. So disable theme features you don't use.
4. Loading extra data your customers aren't using can impact your store speed without adding value.
5. If you are using slideshows, keep slideshows of featured images to 2-3 slides or use one featured image.
6. Use a System font which is a font that is already installed on most computers. For example Segoe UI, Times New Roman. If you use a font that does not yet exist on your customer's computer, then the font has to be downloaded before your text can be displayed. This impacts the time that your store takes to load.
7. Reduce the use of large-sized images and also compress images without losing the quality
8. Use minified CSS and JS files
9. Replace GIFs with static images
10. To reduce the initial load time, you can use Lazyload technique
11. Remove third-party JS scripts and Shopify App which you are no longer using
12. Minimize HTTP requests
13. Avoid unnecessary redirects and fix broken links
14. You can run the "Shopify Theme Inspector for Chrome" https://shopify.dev/themes/tools/theme-inspector?shpxid=667eb8e1-1FCD-4B2D-3290-0B4820F0A7AB to identify the lines of code that are slowing down pages in your online store.


If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, 40% of your traffic will be lost. Apart from speeding up your store, for getting better conversions, make sure your store products are Found on Google.
