Hi @JinpengZeng9,

Great question, while site speed scores do give some indication of a websites speed, unless you are seeing major delays when clicking into your store, I wouldn't worry too much about it. My store site speed is also 36 and it runs quite well. In saying that though, I do understand what you're saying and the want to improve it. There are a number of factors which could come into play for this and it's difficult to pinpoint just one. Some of the main things to look into for this can be:

  • Any extra apps you're not using? Remove them from your store
  • Any apps you recently added code for could contribute to it
  • Any additional themes stored in your admin. If so, remove them if you haven't paid for them (Keep any themes you paid for if you wish because you paid for them).

The content team at Shopify also wrote a comprehensive list via a blog post going into some of the other tips on how to improve your site speed which you can read below:

I hope this helps and don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions about it!

I am also facing the same speed issue with my site, which is 45. I have managed to optimize it but fail.
