Hi there, 

 

I'm facing a speed issue with my website that sells neon led for decoration: www.studi-neon.fr . On the shopify dashboard I only have 60, with 3 app installed. how can I improve my speed? Does migrating to 11.0 will change anything?

 

 

Thanks for your help Shopify community

Hi @EplucheTout,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with improving your site speed, to ensure this gets resolved. 

 

To get started, I've gone ahead and made a couple suggestions that may help. There are 4 main reasons customers will experience slow loading times including: 

 

  • Too many apps trying to load at one time: The more apps that are running at once, the longer the loading times will be. Determine if you really need all those apps and If you're not using them at all, then you should remove them.
  • Theme customizations: When you edit or customize themes, file sizes can increase and affect your store speed. If you have a heavily customized theme, this may be something to take into consideration. 
  •  Image sizes: The larger the image size and the more videos and slideshows you display, the longer it will take to load. We also have a great blog article with 10 Must Know Image Optimization Tips
  • The end-user/customer browser, device, and internet connection: This is something you won't have control over of course, but it is good to keep in mind. 

 

Additionally, I recommend checking out our Improving Your Online Speed Score document as it touches on a few more tips and suggestions. 

 

If after reviewing the suggestions above, your site speed doesn't improve, I'd encourage you to connect with us directly. If you are using a Free Shopify Theme, we may be able to investigate further to provide basic performance improvements. You can learn more about the support available, in our Support For Themes document. 

 

Please let me know if there's anything else I can assist with.

Hey Blair, thanks for your reply ! 

I have another question related to my website, which sells neon signs at https://studio-neon.fr/. I'm curious if adding more files to Shopify's library, even if I don't actively use them, will slow down my website's performance. For example, I have some old products that are no longer active but still have associated .mp4 files.

Regards,

Hi @EplucheTout,

 

No problem at all!

 

I'd be happy to provide some insight on this to ensure it gets resolved. As those files will be added to the Shopify admin, they would not impact your site speed. The site speed is only affected by apps, products, collections, etc that are directly linked to your theme.

 

Hopefully this provides some clarification, but please let me know if you require further details!
