How to speed up Magento 2 store in just one simple step?
It’s possible with the Performance Optimization Tool.
Install the extension and enjoy the result!
Slow sites are a pain point of each Magento merchant. They not only irritate your store visitors, but also impacts SERP position of your store. The slower the site is, the harder to compete with other websites in the search engine results.
A great number of recent studies reveal that the conversion rate sharply drops inversely proportional to the increase in page speed load time. As a result, the website has less Internet traffic which also does not get converted into sales.
Without any doubts, stores which are able to deliver their content faster without frictionless experiences will surely reap the benefits.

How to speed up Magento 2?
Even if you are using Full Page Cache or Varnish on your store, it's not enough to improve Magento 2 performance. Every split second helps win the battle with your store performance.
Performance Optimization Tool extension for Magento 2 will merge all the files which are used by a page and located on your server. Additionally, as a nice bonus, you will get loadable HTML files merged as well. Performance Optimization Tool extension for Magento 2 optimizes js files and therefore, speeds up your Magento 2 store.
Google PageSpeed service recommends loading of JS files to be deferred till the end of a page rendering and generally, not all the scripts are needed to render a web page correctly. Thus, our Performance Optimization Tool for Magento 2 allows moving JS files to the end of the HTML body. In other words, it fixes render-blocking issue.
This is not a secret that merging of JS files will definitely reduce the number of requests to a server. Besides, these merged files can also be cached by a browser, which surely stops a browser from loading one file several times. Performance Optimization Tool merges not only JS files, but also inline scripts.
CSS optimization in Magento 2
Besides JS files, Performance Optimization Tool for Magento 2 supports merging and minification functionality for stylesheets, inline small CSS and provides Defer parsing of CSS as well. However, we’d not recommend to use Defer parsing of CSS, as practice shows that it may affect user experience negatively.
Exclude specific scripts and stylesheets
Our Performance Optimization Tool for M2 allows excluding necessary scripts and stylesheets from compression if needed. Some files, for example, like Google Analytics scripts may be processed improperly when merged or moved to the end of the page. More information can be found in the user guide.
Merge of image files
One of the most amazing features which will definitely attract your attention even more is merging of image files. It uses only single request from a browser to a server to load all image files, which results in dramatically decreased number of all requests to a server.
Lazy load images in Magento 2
The Lazy Load technology provides the possibility to hold over image loading till a user scrolls to a certain image on a page. You know that it is impossible to images a store without images, and sometimes more than 50 % of the page content are images, that’s why Lazy Load works better for long webpages, for example, such as Magento 2 category pages.
