My site is incredibly slow. I've installed file optimizer and optimized over 4MB. I've also deleted several apps. 

Here's a link to my site: https://mantlebunny.com/. Any help is appreciated. 

I used the boundless theme

Well for a start your chat bubble obscures the privacy policy.  This causes problems interacting with your site.

Hello @QEW,


The faster your site is, the more users you are likely to convert. If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, 40% of your traffic will be lost.


Follow the below tips that will help you decrease the load on your web pages.


1. Image compression is important and a necessity for faster loading web pages. Make sure your images are of good quality and do not add too many images on a single page.
2. Reduce the HTTP requests. For example: Combine & inline your CSS scripts
3. Minimize broken links and redirects - Avoid unnecessary Redirects and fix broken links
4. Using slideshow, which are high-quality images combined with transitions, take time to load when the user clicks the link to the homepage. So instead you can use a single high quality hero image.
5. Always choose a theme that is responsive, fast, and takes minimal time to load the page. If you choose a theme with numerous sliders, fancy animations, advanced navigation systems, etc., will affect your page speed.
6. Don't add too many images on a page
7. Use Lazyload wherever required to reduce initial load time
8. Remove all unwanted Shopify Apps which you are not using. Also removing unused app code is a best practice that avoids running code for unused features, and makes your theme code easier to read.
9. Replace GIFs with static images
10. Themes contain CSS, JS, HTML which can increase and affect your store speed. So disable theme features you don't use.
11. If you are using slideshows, keep slideshows of featured images to 2-3 slides, or use one featured image.
12. Use a System font which is a font that is already installed on most computers. For example: Segoe UI, Times New Roman. 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. This impacts the time that your store takes to load.
13. Use minified CSS and JS files
14. Loading extra data your customers aren't using can impact your store speed without adding value.


A slow-loading website can reduce your conversions and profits. A fast-loading website is essential to welcome massive traffic to the website. In the case of eCommerce stores, speed and page loading time play a pivotal role in the success and growth of businesses. Apart from speeding up your store, for getting better organic conversions, make sure your store products are Found on Google. When your customers search on Google, your product can be found only if your page is indexed. Note that once a URL gets indexed, customers will start finding your store through organic searches, you will start getting order conversions for virtually zero cost.
