If the wait is too long in your store, your customers will just run away. And that also applies to your Magento web store. But there are other reasons why a fast web store is important, and we will list them for you. In addition, we will give you 10 tips that will help your Magento web store run much faster in no time!
You hate it when you have to wait for hours. This is why you should not let your customers wait too long when they shop on your web store. That makes a lot of sense… But figures prove that there are other reasons why it is vital that your Magento web store runs fast.
According to our colleagues at Byte.nl, 1 second you save when your web store loads means:
Your Magento web store 1 second faster = more conversion, more value per sale, longer session, lower bounce rate. Check out our tips!
In addition, Google counts the load time of a website as a ranking factor, for both paid and organic search results.
Speed is thus essential. But how can you make your Magento web store faster?
No matter how well your website is designed – a slow web hosting provider can really spoil your day and all your efforts to optimise your website will not make any difference.

This may seem an obvious tip, but many users often overlook it.
On average, images account for 75% of a website. If they are not optimised, they can slow down the page load speed.
By combining both sorts of files, a smaller number of files will be loaded, which will shorten the load time.
Too many options for searching your catalog on your main category page can dramatically slow down the search feature and page load.
Magento normally uses the EAV model (entity attribute value) to save product data in many different tables. Flat Catalog compiles all these products into a single table, so that they can be read faster.
No need to keep useless stuff in your web store! Logs can come in handy if you e.g. need to detect problems, but oversized logs can slow down the system.
Ready-to-use external modules can help you save a lot of time, because you no longer need to develop certain features by yourself.
Not all parts of your page have to be updated per visitor/session. This means you can cache the parts that do not require an update.
A content delivery network uses several servers spread all over the world, which contain your content. When a visitor from the US, for instance, visits your site, the content is retrieved from the nearest server, e.g. a server located in the US, not from the server located in Belgium. This can help you save quite a lot of time.
