Hello,

 

My store speed has dropped tremendously within the past week from an 80 to 30. I had an expert work on it for me and my speed audit is a 90 via google lighthouse report. Can someone please address this? Im losing a lot of customers and sale due to this.

This is an accepted solution.

As a default, Shopify is actually really fast. That is, until you start adding (badly coded) themes, apps, large images and other elements. 

Your site's speed actually appear to be pretty good now. Speed can always be further optimized but from a cost-benefit point of view I think you should focus on other things now. 

One very important think is links. Hardly anyone link to your site now. You need to get more links from relevant sites. That can provide more referal traffic as well as improve your authority in Google - which will in return contribute to better rankings.

My page is melaninplanted.com Also I just had someone work on my store speed from Fiverr so I believe it is a Shopify issue.
