Hello. Does anyone have any advice on how to speed up the Shop? 

 

So I checked the speed of my Shop on GTmetrix. Shop speed is 4.5 sec. 

 

How can the speed be at 1 sec or 1.5? So I compressed all the images in the Shop. And I deleted the unnecessary apps. 

 

What else should I do? If anyone has the experience and speed up the Shop, please leave me a message. 

 

This is store: https://trendshoppingstores.com/

 

Thank you all, and have a nice day.

Hey @MarkoGostic

 

Thanks for reaching out.

I appreciate the context and that you have shared your online store URL, that is very helpful! There are factors that you can control when it comes to improving your online store speed. For example, you can improve the speed of your online store by removing or disabling any unused theme or app features and consider the balance of online store features vs speed. If you are unsure about which features are being used within your online store, you can use a heatmap tool to see what is being used.

 

Additionally, if your online store contains various high quality images on your homepage, you can reduce the quality of your images slightly to allow the online store to load more quickly. Check out our in depth guide that goes into more detail about 10 Image Optimization Tips for your Online Store.

When taking a look at your store today I also noticed that you do not currently have a favicon set for your website. A favicon is a small square image that represents a website in web browser tabs. If you take a look at the top tab bar of your browser right now, I’m sure you’ll see several favicons! Typically, favicons feature a logo, the first letter of the company name or simply an image that reflects the specifics of the website it represents. Adding a favicon to your online store can help strengthen your brand and add a polished look to your website. You can click on this link to read instructions on how to create and add your own favicon your store. Keep in mind that these images are displayed quite small, so it's good to keep in mind that the image you use should be readable at small sizes.
