Shopify shop speed is a common problem, that almost all Shopify stores are experiencing, but almost nobody knows, that they do.

You will see your current Shopify page speed score on both sites and it's important to understand, that you have two scores: one is for your mobile site and another one is for your desktop version. It's wise to focus on your mobile version's performance, but your desktop versions should also be in the 80s of 100. When you never took care of your Shopify speed score, you will probably be ranking between 20-50 of 100 possible points. This is a normal starting ground for a thorough further and deeper analysis of your store and this is definitely the moment where you should add some experience to the table.
