Hello! Need help with my website. It seems like it loads terribly slow. Any ideas on how to solve this? Also how to solve the non-redirection.
Truly appreciate the help!
I used to rely on a so-called expert freelancer and he messed up my site!!! Then I found some tools from Shopify that performed better (to my surprise). They have some functions called AMP that guarantee to boost your site speed on mobile browsers. The great thing is they have a developer/Shopify expert team who provide side-by-side support to make sure that things run smoothly and my page speed could be improved. Then, I ran a speed test and got improved results. Really appreciate these tools from Shopify and their team/service (Here's the link of the tool that I used btw https://bit.ly/2YsfRzq ) Just from my experience as a fellow store owner. Hope it could help!
This is PageFly - Free Landing Page Builder. I would love to provide my recommendation for your store based on 6 years of providing solutions for about 100.000 active Shopify merchants.
First, you should provide your store URL so we can check, find out and give you detailed recommendations.
However, there are some important things you can take a look at:
1. Optimize image loading times: it’s a process of delivering high-quality images in the right format, dimension, size, and resolution while keeping the smallest possible size. Optimized images load faster and consume less cellular data. Some online tools such as Shopify Online Image Resizer, tinypng.com or imagecompressor.com work fairly awesome.
2. Optimize front-end code
2.1 Convert your images to a next-gen format
The only downside of these next-gen formats is browser support is not universal for them. Check out these links below to see the current browser support for each format.
2.2 Minify files
Let’s start with reducing the size of each file and the total number of files. This task includes removing unnecessary formatting, whitespace and code.
2.3 Eliminate render-blocking resources
2.4 Defer unused CSS
To defer unused CSS, you can remove unused rules from stylesheets to reduce unnecessary bytes consumed by network activity.
Prioritize above-the-fold content (lazy loading)
Sometimes, you can improve user experience by having your above-the-fold (top of the page) load faster — even if the rest of the page takes a few seconds to load. This is called lazy loading and is particularly helpful for pages with lots of content below the fold. PageFly does provide this in-app function so you can give it a try.
And finally, Don’t forget Google Indexing
To ensure Google crawls your page and recognizes the changes you’ve made, request indexing using Google Search Console for your website. The sooner Google indexes your site, the better. Speeding up your website may help your Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs).
