Magento 2 Page Speed Optimization Extension User Guide

by KS Tomar Webkul - Software Development Company

Webstore speed and performance optimization are very important for increasing the performance of E-commerce websites. That’s why we have integrated Magento 2 Page Speed Optimization.

The main purpose behind optimizing the store is to provide a better user experience. Especially if you are using the Adobe Commerce platform for your website.

Since Adobe Commerce Cloud is not a lightweight platform. So, without proper optimization of the website, it will be a headache for customers to use it because of the low loading speed.

You can also manage the images to check if the images are appropriate for uploading using the Magento 2 Indecent Content Checker extension.

You can also optimize the server storage by uploading the product, and CMS media content via the Magento 2 Digital Ocean storage extension so that the media is fetched and provided to customers directly from Digital Ocean servers.

Magento 2 Speed and Performance Optimization – Features

  • The admin can enable image optimization features with the help of this extension.
  • The admin can select the image compression type i.e .webp or Jpeg. The selected type will result in the conversion of images into that selected file type from its original type
  • .webp file format will improve product and category page performance by loading the images at a faster rate.
  • Compressed Image Quality functionality is available.
  • The admin can set Encoding Type.
  • The admin can enter a comma-separated list of responsive pixels.
  • Defer loading functionality is available in this module.
  • The extension features an infinite scroller option for products available on category pages on the website. Thus helping in loading all the products of a category to be available on a single page.
  • The extension also features an image lazy loader feature which basically helps in loading the category pages faster.
  • The admin now can cache all the public pages of his site using cache warm-up feature
  • In order to convert mass images available on CMS pages of the website then for that, the admin can easily by the help of terminal commands convert the images to .webP or to Jpeg file format.
  • Makes website performance and rating better.
