You or your agency just completed your new Shopify site. You spent days laboring over the design and countless hours of edits and changes.
But there is a problem… your website is slow!
Maybe you received one of those warnings from Google. Or maybe you had customers complain or mention a slow site on their mobile phone. Or maybe you ran a speed test for yourself.
You know a slow site will make people bounce and not complete the sales.
You also know that Google’s search engine favors faster sites over slow sites that drive high bounce rates.
Of course with Google, it is both paid and organic traffic will be penalized for a slow loading site.
With paid search, slow landing pages lower your Google Ads Quality Score—which means a higher cost-per-click.
Search engine optimization (SEO) experts will also tell you that slow pages hurt organic rankings. Google made it official in their latest “Speed Update.” As of July 2018, page speed is now a ranking factor for mobile searches, too.
What do you do about it?
The first step is to test your own analysis using Google's PageSpeed Insights:https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/
If your score is 90-100, you are good… nothing you need to do.
If your score is 50-89, there may be some items that you’d should fix to improve your page speed. Of course, you’ll want to give careful consideration of page speed versus eCommerce requirements and objectives. For example, there may be certain apps or features that slow down your page but are very effective at driving conversions. Therefore, we recommend running an additional test usinghttps://gtmetrix.com and contacting us to discuss the cost benefit of fixing the identified issues. Why use GTmetrix, Google's PageSpeed Insights is one of many page speed tools and each tool has it own pros and cons. Here is more info on the differences:https://gtmetrix.com/blog/the-difference-between-gtmetrix-pagespeed-insights-pingdom-tools-and-webpagetest/

While I wasn’t able to speed my site up as much as I would like, the service was outstanding. Eddie took a lot of time and talked me through different possibilities and worked with me over weeks to get things to where they are. I appreciate his patience and hard work during this project.
