Hi @damariscarole95,

 

Can you please give more details about your store? Then I can provide the most relevant solution for your case.

 

And if you are not a technically aware person yourself, you will definitely need a developer for that. Because most of the main website speed optimization techniques require coding expertise and must be implemented by an experienced developer.

Hello @damariscarole95,

 

We have checked your web page speed and it is quite unsatisfactory. Don’t worry it can be easily fixed with regular maintenance and updates. 

Here, is a list of things you need to work on to maintain your web page speed.

 

 

  • Reduce or Eliminate render-blocking resources
  • Use minified CSS and JS files
  • Replace GIFs With Static Images
  • Reduce Large Image Sizes
  • Image compression is essential and a necessity for faster loading of web pages. Make sure your images are of good quality and do not add too many images on a single page. You can try tools like tiny.png
  • Try to find fonts from the Shopify admin. If a third-party font is required then should upload to the Assets folder.
  • Use Font-display property as swap.
  • Replace GIFs with static images.
  • To reduce the initial load time, you can use the Lazy load technique.
  • Remove third-party JS scripts and Shopify App which you are no longer using. You should disable app features you don't use, or you can remove the app if you don't need it.
  • If you are removing an app make sure to remove the code that was added as part of the app install process.
  • Avoid multiple page redirects
  • Preload the Largest Contentful Paint image
  • Avoid large layout shifts.
  • Set an explicit width and height on image elements to reduce layout shifts and improve CLS. 

 

Fix these issues and your website speed score will improve considerably.
