Is my site well-optimized?

The best way to determine if your site is optimized in terms of speed is to run a speed test using Google PageSpeed Insights or Google Lighthouse tools. These tools will analyze the website's performance and provide suggestions to improve its speed.

How long it takes to optimize a website based on Page Speed Insight

The amount of time it takes to optimize a website based on PageSpeed Insights can vary depending on several factors, such as the size and complexity of the website, the number of issues identified by the tool, and the level of optimization required.

Can the website sustain this score over a prolonged period?

It depends on how often new modules are installed or new modifications are made on the site. It's important to keep in mind that website optimization is an ongoing process, and it's not a one-time fix. Regularly monitoring the website's performance, implementing best practices for speed optimization, and staying up-to-date with the latest optimization techniques are essential for maintaining optimal website speed and performance. However, this part is more cheaper than optimizing the site from the base.

Questions related to the Page Speed Optimization that we offer:

Yes, we will prepare a detailed report based on the results obtained from Google Page Speed Insight and Google Lighthouse. The report will contain all the elements that will be improved to get the highest possible score on the mobile and desktop versions. In addition to these details in the report, we will add the price of the speed optimization.

In general, site optimization takes between 8 and 10 working days. If we run into problems during the optimization process, such as your server needs to be configured to allow the generation of images in the new digital format (webp), the optimization process may take a little longer. Throughout the process, we will communicate with you and inform you of any details that may create time delays.

We are confident in ourselves because we are specialists in our optimization method and the PrestaShop platform. All of the optimization processes we’ve done so far have been done directly on live sites, and in none of them have we caused any problems in the site’s functionality. If you want, we can optimize your dev site if it is hosted on the same server as the live site, but because most of the processes must be executed manually on each site, the overall cost of the optimization may rise.

The price will be divided into two parts. The first part is paid before the optimization process begins. From the moment the payment is made in 8-10 working days, we will complete the optimization process. Once we are done we will send you the final report, together with an invoice for the second half of the payment.

In order to optimize the speed of the site, we will need Back office access and FTP access. If you use Cloudflare, we will need access here as well because some changes will not appear until the Cloudflare cache hasn’t been cleaned.

Whatever theme you are currently using, we can optimize it to reach the desired score. Some themes are already optimized; in these cases, the work process does not require so much time, but there are also themes that do not take into account even the most common optimization practice; in these cases, the optimization can take even more than 35 hours.

We understand the importance of transparency and communication in this field, which is why we use the Monday system. When the collaboration begins, we will send you an invitation to this system, where you will be able to track the work done on the optimization points, the working time on each side, and if you have any questions or observations, you can quickly write a message, which we will respond as soon as possible.

Yes, once the optimization process has been completed, we send you a report with the score achieved on the index, category and products page.

We do not deal with server configurations as a PrestaShop agency. However, we had knowledge in this area as well, and if we find server problems during the optimization, we will notify you so that you may take the required actions and contact your hosting provider to remedy the problems.

After optimizing the index page, category, and products, we can guarantee a minimum score of 80 for the mobile version and 90 for the desktop version. If we are unable to achieve this score, we will return the amount paid for site optimization.

It depends on the frequency of new module installations and site modifications. It is essential that you understand that website optimization is a continuous procedure, not a one-time fix. Maintaining optimal website speed and performance requires consistent monitoring of the website’s performance, implementation of best practices for speed optimization, and awareness of the most recent optimization techniques. However, this component is less expensive than optimizing the site from the ground up.

General questions related to Page Speed Optimization and Google Core Web Vitals score improvement:

Page speed should be a priority for everyone, as it impacts the usability, search engine rankings, and overall performance of a website. Page speed is a measure of how quickly a webpage loads and responds to user interaction. A faster website can lead to increased user satisfaction and engagement, improved search engine rankings, and ultimately more conversions and revenue. Additionally, page speed is an important factor for user experience and online success, as slow-loading websites will discourage users from engaging with the site and may negatively affect search engine rankings. Therefore, optimizing page speed is essential for website success.

The most popular online tools for testing page speed are Google PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom Website Speed Test, and GTmetrix. Google PageSpeed Insights provides a score for the page’s performance along with suggestions for improvement. Pingdom Website Speed Test provides detailed performance reports and recommendations for optimizing page speed. GTmetrix provides an in-depth analysis of page loading performance and offers detailed optimization recommendations.

We will mention a few methods through which a PrestaShop website can be optimized. These include optimizing images by using the correct file format and compressing them, setting up caching to reduce server requests, minifying HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code using asynchronous loading for large files and resources, reducing the number of plugins and third-party scripts, and leveraging browser caching.

Page speed optimization can be quite challenging, depending on the complexity and size of a website. Optimizing a website for speed involves making adjustments to the website’s code, structure, and files, as well as considering external factors like server response time, browser caching policies, and external network latency. Additionally, optimizing a website for speed often requires testing and tweaking to ensure the desired performance is achieved.

Optimizing core web vitals has many advantages, including better user experience, improved page loading speed, and improved search engine rankings. With improved user experience, visitors are more likely to stay on your page, increasing the chances of a purchase or page engagement. Faster page loading speed leads to decreased bounce rates, as users will be more likely to stay on your page if it loads quickly. Additionally, improved page loading speed can lead to higher search engine rankings, as search engines reward sites with good user experience. This can also lead to more organic website traffic. By optimizing core web vitals, you can improve the overall user experience and performance of your website.

Mobile devices can help your website compete against other sites by improving user experience, providing faster response times, and enhancing search engine optimization (SEO). Having a mobile-friendly website ensures that your website can be easily accessed and navigated by users on any device, including mobile phones and tablets. This can boost your website’s visibility in search engine results, since Google gives preference to mobile-friendly websites. Additionally, having a website that can be quickly accessed and navigated on mobile devices is likely to improve user satisfaction, which can lead to an increase in traffic and conversions.

Not optimizing a website for mobile can cause poor user experience, a decrease in website visitors and visitors spending less time on the website, decreased search engine rankings, a decrease in conversions, higher bounce rates, and lower website traffic. Additionally, not optimizing your website for mobile may lead to potential customers being unable to access the website from a mobile device due to lack of functionality. This could lead to a lower number of sales, fewer opportunities to build relationships with customers, and a decrease in brand visibility and recognition.

It is difficult to determine which is more important – page speed optimization or Google Core Web Vitals optimization – as both are important for improving user experience. Page speed optimization refers to techniques used to increase the speed of loading a website, while Google Core Web Vitals optimization focuses on improving the performance of the page from the user’s perspective. Both page speed optimization and Core Web Vitals optimization are necessary for a website to perform well and provide an enjoyable user experience.

Yes, optimising Core Web Vitals is a great way to improve page speed. Core Web Vitals measure and provide data about speed, interactivity, and the stability of a web page, and optimizing for them can help a page load and respond faster. Improving Core Web Vitals scores can mean a faster page load time and a better user experience overall. Additionally, Google has stated that improvements in speed are one of the primary measures they use to rank websites in search engine results, so improving your Core Web Vitals scores can also help to improve your site’s SEO.
