Hi i am actually having one additional:
My store has a very low speed score of 26 which means it's running slower than other shopify stores and I'm wondering why that it and what i can do to address it. I am wondering what i can do to increase this score?
This is PostPurchaseSurvey.com - free Post Purchase Surveys. For a quick win on side speed, make sure that all your images are compressed and optimized. Whenever we upload a photo on our website, we'll do what's called "lossless compression" in order to reduce the file size without losing image quality. This is really helpful for SEO efforts and for speeding up your website.
Hi @PurchaseSurvey ,
Shopify store speed optimization is not easy work.
1. analyze you store in Google pagespeed insight, https://pagespeed.web.dev/
2. focus on metrics that slow down your website
3. solve the issues one by one.
You can also share your store URL and password if it is password-protected, and then we can have a check.
Hope it works.
If helpful, please like and accept my solution.
Hi JoV, Check the opportunities section of Page Speed Insights too. If thankyoubag is the website in question then it shows defer/lazy load images as the number Uno issue.
As any issue, this issue can also be solved by custom coding, Plus Shopify apps that offer this feature also exists.
When it comes to site speed, please note that there are several factors impacting your online store speed, some of which you can control, others you cannot.
Your customer's device, network, and location
Content delivery network (CDN)
Local browser cache
Server-side page cache
The assets inside the content_for_header Liquid tag
When you add apps to change the functionality or appearance of your online store, they add code into the theme so they can run. Some code can be removed or reordered to improve your online store's performance. If you're not using an app, then you can remove it.
You can edit almost all of the Liquid that is used to render your store. There are efficient and inefficient ways of writing Liquid code. Doing complex operations repeatedly can increase your Liquid render time, which impacts your overall store speed.
High-resolution images usually require large files and therefore slow down page loading times.
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.
I suggest you try AVADA SEO Suite which has great features that can help you with improving site speed such as Image Optimization, Speed Up, Lazy Loading and Minification (removes unnecessary information from the source code).
You can also refer to this Shopify post about Improving Speed.
