The faster your site is, the more users you are likely to convert.


1. Don't add too many images on a page
Adding too many images on a page can be frustrating. It can significantly slow the load time of your website. Also, it can overwhelm visitors, which will ultimately result in a poor user experience, a high bounce rate, and a high probability of lower rankings in relative search results.
2. Using slideshow, which are high-quality images combined with transitions, takes time to load when the user clicks the link to the homepage. So instead you can use a single high-quality hero image.
3. Minimize broken links and redirects - Avoid unnecessary Redirects and fix broken links
4. Reduce the HTTP requests. For example: Combine & inline your CSS scripts
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. If your theme is loading slowly, consider disabling the theme features you don't need.
6. 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.
7. Remove all unwanted Shopify Apps which you are not 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.
8. Replace GIFs with static images
9. Themes contain CSS, JS, HTML which can increase and affect your store speed. So disable theme features you don't use.
10. Minimize HTTP requests
11. Use minified CSS and JS files
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.


If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, 40% of your traffic will be lost. Speed will affect Google indexing. When your customers search on Google, your product can be found only if your page is indexed. flareAI helps to get your new products found on Google.

@Mystique0711 ,

Hope you are doing well. 

Welcome to the Shopify Community.

I have gone through your store. It really looks nice. You have choosen the best-known e-commerce solution Shopify platform currently on the market.

Optimizing your Shopify store is time-consuming. Themes are made up of Liquid, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code. When you edit or customize the themes, file sizes can increase and affect your store speed.

Google PageSpeed Insights is a free tool to help you find and fix issues slowing down your web application. Get your PageSpeed score and use PageSpeed suggestions to make your web site faster through our online tool.

 

I have checked your site in the page insight chrome tool. your website score is very low.

You need to work on following points :

  • Theme Upgrade if there is a scope and upgraded theme available
  • Reduce JS Payload.
  • Use Critical CSS .
  • Replace GIFs With Static Images
  • Reduce Large Image Sizes
  • Migrate Tracking Codes To Google Tag Manager
  • Compress Images
  • Limit Third Party JavaScript & Shopify Apps
  • Preload Web Fonts. 
  • I would suggest limiting to one and using a standard web font.

 

By fixing these issues, your website speed score can definitely improve.

Speed score: https://prnt.sc/9ZrsBOEqwcEd
Heavy apps, which are facebook, Stamped Product Reviews & UGC, etc may cause many Javascripts that make your speed become slow
To resolve this, you have 2 suggested options:

1. You should review your app list and delete unused apps
