Everyone loves a fast site. Not only is having a fast site a huge plus for user experience but Google rewards fast sites with a higher ranking.
For example, one thing that some people don’t realize is that free stock photos are not optimized for a regular website. These images are too large. They need to be optimized for the web and resized before uploading them on your site. Using Adobe Photoshop, or other photo editing software, to resize should be worked into your process before updating your site.
There are a wide variety of tools you could use but I’ve found that GTmetrix and PageSpeed Insights are the most useful and helpful in identifying opportunities for optimizations. If I had to choose, I prefer GTmetrix because it provides clear recommendations on what should be done to fix the issues.
Okay, so you run the report and found all the images that need to be fixed, now what? That’s where we can help. Fixing the errors takes a bit of time, and this may be something you aren’t familiar with or simply don’t have the time to do. Contact us today and we can help with any image clean up that’s needed to help improve your website page speed.
