Why does page speed matter?
Slow-loading website increases bounce rate, decreases average time on page, decreases your SEO ranking and directly impacts your business earnings. An ideal LCP (largest contentful paint/element) is 1.2 seconds or less and an ideal page load time is 1-3 seconds. If your website is not loading in less than 3 seconds then it’s time to spend a little money for a huge return.
Following are few benefits of page speed optimization.
- Improved User-experience
- Faster loading time
- Good conversion rate
- Reduced bounce rate
- Good search-engine ranking
How to optimize page speed?
There is a number of factors that contribute to reducing the website speed. The major one is a slow web hosting plan which is not true in the case of Shopify. The other major factor is the number of apps or plugins installed. More the number of apps you have the slower your website loads because they all load in a separate HTTP request. To improve your store speed you need to reduce those HTTP requests as much as you can. Following are few tips to improve the speed of your store.
- Reduce the number of apps or plugins installed to reduce HTTP requests
- Delete unnecessary images to reduce HTTP requests
- Reduce the size of images so they can load faster
- Implement the lazy loading technique to improve user experience
- Ignore irrelevant assets on the page
