Boost Your Site Speed with Lazy Loading!
I've seen a lot of people asking how to increase their website speed. And they're right to worry about this.
Site Speed is a Critical Factor for Search Engines
And do you know what can decrease your website speed A LOT?
First, you should worry about resizing. Now, between SiteContent and Kraken, we have this covered, so the next step is lazy loading. Lazy loading is exactly what the name implies. It loads the images, but lazily...
The plugin loads only the images that are visible above the fold, in the beginning. While the user scrolls down, it loads the rest of the images.
That has a HUGE benefit!
The user doesn't have to wait for 10, 20 or more images to load. They wait only for 1 or 2 and they get the site way faster.
Lazy Load by WP Rocket (https://el.wordpress.org/plugins/rocket-lazy-load/) is a great plugin for lazy loading so test it out.
Oh, and so that I prove what I'm saying, I'll just deactivate the plugin from my site so I can show you what I'm talking about.
