Why is my website loading slowly despite an A rating on Speed Boostr?

My website, www.ubgclothing.com, is experiencing slow site speed. I reviewed several transaction video recordings and can see where my site has problems loading.

I tried to run a Lighthouse speedtest; however I'm receiving error message "Lighthouse returned error: This request took too long to render."

I also ran a Speed Boostr test and the results revealed an A.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello @ttander32 ,

Low mobile page speed may kill your traffic and affect your conversion.

In order to Improve website speed you need to:
- Remove unnecessary code on a high priority basis.
- Compressed images or Defer off-screen images.
- Web Pages need to be Minify.
- Reduce JavaScript execution time
- Minimize main-thread work
- Beware of excessive liquid loops
- Decrease thumbnail image size
- Weigh the benefits of installing another app


By fixing these issues, your website speed score can definitely improve. For more details please check and select the plan you wish to select -

Wooo 97/100 on the Analyzer, nice score, theme looks good. 👍

I tried running your url through Google PSI and got that same error.

I'm not sure what's causing it, but these console errors could be an indication:

The 2 files referenced are booster.js and common.js.... common.js sounds like a theme file, booster.js sounds like it's coming from an app. I would start there, see if you can figure out what's causing those errors (either through debugging or contact the developer).

Console errors like this indicate a problem with your code. Sometimes they're harmless, sometimes they cause problems. In this case, when you open the console it triggers the debugger, so that might be something Google PSI is picking up on and failing the test.

If you're not familiar with working with the console (or want more explanation), here's a guide: https://speedboostr.com/finding-and-fixing-server-errors.

Thank you. If Boostr and Lightspeed are based on the same Google Engine, why am I getting two different sets of results? I've reached out to the suspected application owners for support.

If Boostr and Lightspeed are based on the same Google Engine, why am I getting two different sets of results?

Because they're not based on the same engine. The Shopify Analyzer by Speed Boostr is not based on Google Lighthouse.

Lighthouse doesn't have a good scoring system for ecommerce sites, especially platform type sites that use 3rd party apps, so we built our own (for Shopify sites) and set the scoring based on over 1,000 sites we've optimized.
