How to Image Optimize for Website — Better Search Results

If you are wondering how to image optimize for website and get better search results, then you are aware of your websites poor optimization and bad speed due to images.

It is well known that doing an image optimize can significantly increase your website speed and result in more user searches.

A website that is not well optimized and holds huge image sizes can make so many requests on a visit that no user would stand the time it takes for your website to fully load.

How to image optimize for website

In 2021 60% of the website visitors are using mobile devices. As you may know, it takes longer time for your website to load on a phone, because it does not hold boosted accessories like a computer.

In fact if your website’s loading times take more than 3 seconds to fully load, it is more likely for you to lose a visitor and increase your bounce rate.

Bounce rate is determined by the time and page views done by the user and how long will it take him to leave your page.

Imagine that you have a website taking anywhere between 5 and 10 seconds to load. Nobody would ever want to wait that much time.

It would be lucky if someone stays to wait that much time for your website to fully load, without leaving and destroying your hard work.

But on the other hand if your website is loading fast and you optimize your images, you may get a loading time between 1 and 1.5 seconds, which will reward you with more clicks and happy users.

Google rewards websites with high page rank and position on first page for websites who load fast and have low requests coming from images.

That is why doing image optimize and increasing your website’s speed can reduce those requests in order to help your website load faster and have less page size and get your image optimize up and running.

In order to do image optimize for website you can:

  • Reduce Image size by resizing
  • Enable Gzip compression
  • Use the right file format such as JPG or WebP
  • Install a plugin such as ShortPixel, Smush or TinyPNG
  • Enable lazy loading
  • Compress Images
  • Use a CDN such as CloudFlare or Bunny CDN
