Why is my Magento site so slow?

There are several reasons your Magento site is slow. To identify the cause, you need to know where to look. Here are the top 10 causes of a slow Magento site to check before attempting a fix:

  • You’re on an older version of Magento / PHP
  • Images are not optimized
  • Your theme is “heavy”
  • Proper caching is not in use (consider Varnish)
  • Javascript is not optimized
  • Extraneous or poorly written code
  • Third-party extensions
  • Database optimization not implemented
  • Improperly sized hosting architecture
  • Not using a content delivery network

How do I improve my conversion rates?

Different businesses have different conversion expectations for their website. Some companies seek leads, while others are looking for subscriptions, some care most about purchases, and still, others are looking for engagement.

While the actual call to action/landing page is important to consider, it is essential to back up a bit and make sure you are getting the right people with the right intent to the right CTA / page. For example, a great call to action for a special on snowblowers will fail if the visitor is looking for hammocks (and lives in Florida).

Assuming you match the visitor intent with your call to action, the next most important element is making the conversion action clear and easy. Ideally, this means:

  • Presenting a single call to action
  • Making the call to action clear and attractive for all devices
  • Ensuring your website and CTAs are accessible for all users
  • Providing some form of follow-through to confirm the action and perhaps thank the visitor

What is Magento 2 database optimization?

Database optimization is a generic term used for work done with a database to achieve a specific result. In some cases, you might be seeking to improve the speed of your application, while in others, to reduce the size of your database. For Magento users, the speed of an application is the most common reason to consider database optimization activities. In this scenario, consider the following optimizations:

  • Using the latest database version
  • Log cleanup / truncation
  • Site reindexing
  • Switching to flat catalog
  • Use ElasticSearch
  • Implementing automated optimization activities where appropriate
