Resize images that are too large

Resize your images to fit your page dimensions.

There’s a simple rule of thumb – use dimensions appropriate for your page width (or just slightly bigger). 

Resize the image before uploading it. Storing a 3 MB photo on your website makes no sense even if you resize it afterward (unless you want it to be downloadable in full size). You will prevent them from eating up your web hosts’ disk space too fast.

If 57% of the time spent on a page is above-the-fold, lazy loading becomes a useful tool in conserving your server’s energy.

They are useful for helping visitors understand what the visual content on a page looks like without being able to see it & serve as important information Google pays attention to when trying to gather what a page is about.

Commonly used image file types

Structured data allow you to mark up the information about the web page.

Image optimization is a critical part of SEO.

You need to show that you really have something that’s unique and compelling and of high quality.

Compression is a process that strips away inessential data and file bytes while (mostly) preserving the quality of your image. 

Moving your images to a content delivery network (CDN) might also be helpful.

Your server makes a copy of your web page and all its content — including images — so that it doesn’t have to recreate the page every time someone requests to see it.

Considering about a quarter of all web searches take place on Google Image Search, it would be beneficial to generate an image sitemap apart from your regular XML sitemap.
