Can you drop your store URL?


You can consider the below steps to improve the speed of your Shopify store.


1. Optimize your images
Large image files can slow down your store. Compress and resize your images before uploading them to your store. You can use image optimization tools like TinyPNG to reduce file sizes without compromising quality.

2. Use a responsive theme
Choose a theme that is optimized for mobile devices and responsive across different screen sizes. A responsive theme ensures your store loads quickly and looks good on all devices.

3. Minimize the use of apps
While apps can add functionality to your store, having too many apps or resource-intensive apps can slow down your site. Review the apps you have installed and remove any that are not essential or causing performance issues.

4. Enable lazy loading
Lazy loading delays the loading of non-essential elements, such as images or videos, until they are visible in the user's browser window. This technique can significantly improve initial page load times. There are Shopify apps available, such as Lazy Loading Images, that can help you implement this feature.

5. Enable browser caching
Configure your Shopify store to use browser caching. This allows the browser to store static files, such as CSS and JavaScript, locally, reducing the number of requests made to the server and improving load times for returning visitors.

6. Remove unused code
Review your theme's code and remove any unnecessary or unused code snippets. Unnecessary code can slow down your store's performance.

7. Monitor and optimize your store's performance
Regularly monitor your store's performance using tools like Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix. These tools provide insights into areas that can be further optimized for better speed. Follow their recommendations to improve your store's performance.


If you've already uninstalled apps that were causing speed issues and your store is still slow, it may be beneficial to reach out to Shopify's support team for further assistance. They can analyze your specific situation and provide tailored guidance to help improve your store's speed.

Hello @Rajesh15

 

Optimizing your Shopify store for all types of devices is crucial to gain conversions. Since most consumers make purchases from their mobile devices, you must employ mobile optimization techniques that can help you gain better sales. 

Here are a few crucial things you can do to improve the store's performance:

 

  1. Optimize images: Large images can slow down your website on desktop and mobile devices. Use image optimization tools like TinyPNG or Kraken.io to compress your images without losing quality.

  2. Minimize JavaScript and CSS files: Minimizing JavaScript and CSS files can help reduce the amount of code that loads on your website. You can use tools like Minify JS and Minify CSS to compress these files.

  3. Optimize your website's code: Optimizing your website's code can help reduce the amount of data that loads on all types of devices. You can use tools like GTmetrix or Google PageSpeed Insights to identify the critical areas where the website's code needs optimizing.

  4. Use a responsive design: Responsive design ensures your website looks good on any device, including mobile devices. Your website's layout and design will automatically adjust to fit the screen size of the device used.

  5. Use a mobile-friendly theme: Shopify offers various mobile-friendly themes optimized for fast loading on mobile devices. Choose a responsive and well-optimized theme for more speed.

  6. Reduce the number of apps: Review your installed apps and remove any that are no longer necessary or are causing performance issues.

  7. Enable lazy loading: Shopify has a built-in lazy loading feature that loads images only as needed, which can help reduce the amount of data that loads on customer’s devices.

  8. Use a mobile-friendly checkout: Shopify's mobile checkout is fast and easy for mobile devices. Ensure your checkout process is optimized for mobile and loads quickly.



By implementing these tips, you can help improve the performance of your store without changing the desktop design or adding additional apps.

 

The above solution will surely help. Let us know if you need any further help with speed and optimization.

 

All the best,

Hello @Rajesh15 

Hope you are doing well. 

I have checked your site in the google page insight Chrome tool. your website score is very low.2023-06-02_11-59.jpg

 

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. 
  • I suggest limiting it to one and 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. 

 

Have a nice day!
