Hello @Mady2811,

 

I am Gina from flareAI app helping Shopify merchants get $6Million+ in sales from Google Search, on autopilot. I am here to support you.


I ran a speed test for your website. Your site's desktop speed is 92 which is good.

For mobile, the speed is very low.

First, focus on image optimization. Compress and optimize your images to reduce file sizes without compromising quality. Large image files can significantly slow down your website on mobile devices. Use image editing tools or Shopify apps to handle this.


Next, ensure your website has a mobile-friendly design. A responsive design will adapt to different screen sizes, providing a better user experience. Test your website on various mobile devices and utilize Google's Mobile-Friendly Test tool to identify any design or layout issues that need attention.


Minifying your CSS, JavaScript, and HTML files is another important optimization step. Minification involves removing unnecessary characters from your code, such as white spaces and comments. This reduces file sizes and improves loading times. Shopify's built-in tools and apps available in the Shopify App Store can assist you with this process.


Enabling browser caching is crucial. By configuring browser caching, you allow static resources like images, CSS, and JavaScript files to be stored locally on visitors' devices. This means returning visitors can load your website faster, as their browsers won't need to re-download the same resources. Check your Shopify settings to ensure caching is enabled.


Evaluate the third-party apps and scripts installed on your website. Some apps or scripts may add additional code or functionalities that can slow down your site. Review and remove any unnecessary apps and scripts that are not critical to your website's functionality.


Reducing the number of redirects is important for improving loading speed. Excessive redirects can significantly impact your website's performance. Conduct an audit to identify any unnecessary redirects and remove or consolidate them where possible.


Consider the apps you have installed on your Shopify store. While apps can enhance functionality, having too many can negatively impact performance. Review the apps and remove any that are not adding value to your store.


Regularly test your website's performance using tools like Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix. These tools provide insights and recommendations for improving your site's speed. Monitor your website's performance over time to identify any regressions and take necessary actions.


Hope this helps

Below are some factors that might impact the speed of your online store, and how you can address them. 

We’ve had the best success for our clients by working with our developers to implement the lazy sizes because it's quite complicated for non-technical people.

You need to work on the following points:

  • Theme Upgrade if there is a scope and upgraded theme available
  • Reduce JS Payload.
  • Use Critical CSS.
  • Replace GIFs With Static Images
  • Reduce Large Image Sizes
  • Migrate Tracking Codes To Google Tag Manager
  • Compress Images
  • Limit Third-Party JavaScript & Shopify Apps
  • Preload Web Fonts. 
  • Using a standard web font.

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

If anything needs to be included or clarified then feel free to ask.  We will surely help you.
