Optimizing website speed and pictures with lazy load
Many people have been arguing if WordPress loads the task in a synchronical or asynchronical way. Well, if you check your site speed and how your resources load, you will get the idea that is synchronical. This leads to slower loading, but Jetpack has this covered with the Enable Site Accelerator.
This function is enabled in our website, even though we have a caching plugin and image optimizer plugin. It does not destroy any kind of code, mess up the loading time, crash pages or give any kind of error, which needs a fix.
Site Speed Accelerator comes up with 2 options, which are Speed up Image Load Times & Speed up Static file Load Times.
Allowing them will be a good idea, but after allowing, you can wait up to 30 seconds and check your website speed from Pingdom, GT Metrix or any other website, which was mentioned above.
Along with Jetpack’s optimization options, you get Daily Backup, Following blog comments, Enabling site spam protection, Auto update plugins and many other features, which can be found here.
