General questions

Does SEO Suite slow down my website speed?

Avada SEO Suite does add some codes into your theme, but it will not affect your website speed at all.

For example: The following code you see added by Avada SEO Suite:

On theme.liquid there is a section of:

{% include 'avada-seo' %}

It is used to optimize your website structure and make it Google friendly. Our app does not add css, js into your theme so it cannot affect your website speed. Please check other apps that add css, js codes to your storefront, they likely affect your site speed.

Moreover, we make your site load faster by optimizing images and use instant page technology. You can test it by uninstalling SEO Suite and compare the speed after that. (Test speed by this tool: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/)

Technical questions

What should I do when feeds are disaproved after using image optimization?

There are some cases when the feeds are disapproved by Google Merchant, Google Shopping Campaign, and Google Display

So, what do you do in such a case?

Actually, this issue is caused by the changed format of images after optimization. However, SEO Suite app-only compresses your images, not resize or change image format. In fact, the images are uploaded with the original format.

The error you got with Google Merchant seems to be the general issue as many other sites experienced.

How to verify my store on Google Search Console?
How duplicated preloader may affect my site?

What is Preloader, Instant Page loader?

When people on your site browsing on the store, hovering links on desktop and mobile, people expect the next page they go to will load as fast as it can. So, make sure that the loading time of a page is fast may give an edge.

Amazon and others found that removing 100 milliseconds of latency improves sales by 1% The idea is that there is a significant delay between hovering over a link and clicking that link. Say it takes you 300ms of delay. That 300ms could have been spent preloading the next page. And if you do use that time preloading, that page loads that much faster.

The preloaders would load the page content before users want to visit, so when they actually do, the page is served from cache instantly which would improve user experience.

What if I have more than 1 page preloader?

The fact that you need preloaders for your site, but probably only need one. No need to preload the page for a couple of times in a row. Which will turn out to waste network resources. So if you have more than 1, you should be considering to choose one active only. If not, there would a race on preloading pages on your site in the background.

How long does SEO Suite optimize my images?

Usually it takes hours depending on how many images you have in your website. The maximum time is around 10 hours.
