Kraken Image Optimization Now at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: July 04, 2019

Hi Everyone,

Today I am really excited to blog about a technical update we have been working on for quiter some time. As many of you that have built websites at WA in the past know, image optimization is incredibly important to the success of your business. Slow loading images on your website are in many cases the sole culprit of a poor user experience, and worse yet, Google will punish your website in terms of rankings and exposure if you have a slow website.

So how do you optimize images on your website?

There are a few ways to optimize your images. The easiest way to optimize images and a feature that is available to all Premium members, is the image optimization platform that is built directly into SiteContent. If you upload or use any of the 1,000,000+ images that you have available to you within the SiteContent writing platform, you will automatically get industry leading "image optimization" performed as publish your content to your websites.

This is sophisticated technology that we have developed and has been available to you for some time.

So, what about Wordpress plugins for image optimization? Are they a good option?

Yes, many of them work well. Up to this point we have installed the EWWW image optimization plugin with every website install. This is a solid plugin and I have no problems recommending it moving forward, but we are moving on from this plugin. We are now offering a brand new image optimization platform for all NEW websites built moving forward.

I want to spend some time explaining what this platform is, why we have made the decision to adopt this platform for image optimization, and the continued and vast benefits that you are going to get building your websites here at WA moving forward.

Introducing Kraken Image Optimization...

Kraken is image optimization company and they are by far the industry leader in terms of image optimization. We have actually been using them for several years now for optimization done on our end and within internal platforms here at Wealthy Affiliate.

If you have ever used the SiteContent Images platform where you can leverage over 1 MILLION high definition images for your websites, we have leveraged Kraken technology for the image compression there. A service that we pay for, but we include in your Premium membership because we understand the importance of compression and want the best for all the members here at WA.

This is also one of the many reasons why WA websites outrank websites within all of the other hosting/content management platforms in the industry. We have a vested interest in offering you the fastest loading websites and hosting, because we want your websites to be as successful as possible. The server side technology and the overall optimization done from OUR end is becoming more and more important to search engines, thus we continue to keep it at the forefront of our focus.

We will continue to lead the website/hosting process from a technology and UX standpoint. We have some more announcements in respect to this as we move through the weeks and months ahead, some truly breakthrough stuff that we have been working on for over two years now!

Anyways, back to Kraken. Why have we decided to adopt Kraken for image optimization, not just for our website/hosting side of things, but as a company we have decided they are the best of the best when it comes to this. To offer you some clarity and help you understand the competitive difference between Kraken and some "other" plugin or tool used for image optimization, I have broken this down into 4 key reasons we have made the switch.

  1. We have used it for years, it work's brilliantly well. Before we ever make a decision to adopt any sort of technology, in particular something that we implement on a hosting basis, we put it through rigorous testing. If it is not a sophisticated enough solution for us, then it isn't going to ever make the cut for a service that we provide for others. After testing many solutions and even using the same code that Google uses to process images, we have determined that Kraken is the clear winner. We want you to have the "best of the best" and this is it. They run their company much like we do, always looking for new solutions and never being content with their technology. This leads to innovation and is what creates industry leaders.

  2. Off Site Processing. Most Wordpress plugins process and optimize images "on server", meaning that the server has to do the resource intense job of crunching images, creating load and efficiency issues on servers as well as hits to website performance. Kraken processes images on their own servers which leads to more efficient optimization.

  3. Adopted by other Major Corporations. Used by the likes of Nvidia, Microsoft, Dell, Tesla, Nasdaq among many others. They have optimized over 3 BILLION images and this number is growing by millions daily. When a company has a focus on images like this and has a "funded" platform from real paid companies, you can rest assured they are going to be the leaders in the space.

  4. Optimal Page Loding Speeds. Many times the reason for a slow loading website is due to one issue, imagery. Using Google Pagespeed Insights as a tool to help you with your website, you can determine speed issues - in many cases a big "issue" is having images that are not optmized for the web. For all websites installed here at WA going forward, any images that are uploaded directly through WordPress are going ot be "Kraked" (Optimized). Any images added through SiteContent are also Kraked!

Managing Your Kraken Plugin

There is nothing that you have to do on your end to set-up Kraken with a new website. Upon creating any NEW website, you are going to see the Kraken plugin within the Plugins tab.


This is where you can go to manage this plugin, you can deactivate/activate. In saying this, this plugin should always be activated on your website.

Retroactively, old websites will be unchanged. I recommend that if you are using EWWW, that you continue to use EWW as the Kraken website has been formulated to work with new website installs (with our custom solution) on our brand new class of servers. This is a class that our technical team has spent more than two years developing, and something that ALL websites are going to be moved to in the coming months ahead (the transition has already started with that) . We'll be blogging in detail about this very soon.

The Kraken plugin settings will offer you options that we do not suggest you change. You'll notice that there are "Keys" - do not change these because these are the keys that you need to use in order for Kraken to work. And as a side note - these keys only work with websites hosted here at WA on the new server class. They will not work on any other web host, or older websites here at WA.


There are a number of settings that you "can" change, but we've done a lot of testing here at WA to make sure that the setting the plugin is installed with are optimal. When you upload an image to WordPress, the theme will create a number of sizes of images, typically a thumnail, and small, medium, large etc. We've got things set so that all of these images will be optimized.

How to take advantage of Kraken?

There is absoltuely nothign that you need to do differently to take advantage of this new cutting edge image optimization platform. Either use SiteContent to create and publish your content (our recommendation), or use WordPress directly as you normally would. All images will be Kraked and optimized!

On our many test websites that we've used during developement of our new server class that includes Kraken, you'll be happy to know that we're achieving perfect, if not near perfect scores in Google PageSpeed Insights. That's scores of 100/100 Mobile and 100/100 Desktop - Kraken certainly plays a role in these incredible and industry leading scores.

Masterful, Seamless Image Optimization

We are giving you the key to image optimization, not just metaphorically but we are giving you access to the premium and industry leading optimization of your websites without any additional costs.

If you have a website installed currently at WA and are using EWWW image optimizer, keep using that because Kraken will not work on those websites using our Premium Keys (Yet). With that said, we will be announcing our Next Generation server class very soon which is gonig to allow all Premium members the ability to upgrade and make use of these insanely fast and optimized servers and thus enabling Kraken in place of EWWW image optimizer.


Thanks for reading this post, we look forward to any feedback or questions that you may have!

Have a wonderful day and week ahead!

Site support has been working on switching members over for some time now from what I understand. I've seen a few I know get moved to the new servers in the last few days. I've also heard if you contact support and request the change, many times they will do it.

Carson, your article answered many questions I had. It was reassuring to learn that WA uses Kraken in Site Content. I always use that to create new content. Rarely do I add new images in WordPress after publishing a Blog Post.

Good to know we don't have to change anything on our existing websites. My speed results have been quite good for both Desktop and Mobile, so I am a happy camper.

Thanks for doing what it takes to keep us at the cutting edge of website and other technologies, like the Affiliate Programs Tool.

May Wealthy Affiliate continue to evolve and help create new successful online entrepreneurs!

Cheers!

I was going to start with a new theme on an existing website. Would I use this over EWWW or am I stuck with the other as it is an up and running website? Either way, I was going to switch but wondered if this is something I could work into it. I have actually had size issues with my pictures using the EWW so I wanted to switch anyways. Thanks

Hi Jason,

If you're installing a new theme on an existing site, you'll still have EWWW image optimizer installed. In order to take advantage of Kraken, you'll need a brand new domain/website installed. Existing sties will be "Upgradable" very soon though and at that time Kraken will be installed to replace EWWW.

When the time arrives for Me to use Kraken I will be excited. My current sites I am working on are from last year so They may not be ready for Kraken yet. Ewww is in place. I have a few I created this year but don't know the time frame of Kraken eligibility ? Also, when we incorporate Kraken to handle the older sites will the older pictures be optimized ?..............Scotty B ♫

Looks like Krakus will not work with the older websites at this point until we hear more updates about the program going forward. Only New Websites is where you will see Kraken, however the Tech team will provide more updates! Keep your eyes open, sounds great right?

I'm wondering about how / when sites built before Kraken was included will be switched over too.

My sitespeed tests are near 100 on desktop but not so great for mobile - yet this is not consistent so I'm not sure what I am doing wrong (or right lol).

In a way it makes me want to start from scratch with a new website since my site isn't very far along yet and it appears the Eww plugin on the site I have is not up to snuff hah.

This is awesome news for us.

This is absolutely wonderful news! I’d been thinking about image optimisation for a site I’ve just started building here, knowing that the majority of images on the site will be my own images rather than via site content so this news is very timely for me.

Thanks so much for this. You and the team work so hard to give your members leading technology as well as an awesome experience, and I thank you.

Hey Carson, I hope you and yours are doing well! Sounds very promising and I am happy to hear it will become available to existing WA members already with websites. My main problem is with mobile loading slower than desktops. It sounds like Kraken will improve my loading scores. Thanks for all that you do.

Hi Robert,

High mobile scores with Google PageSpeed Analysis are harder to achieve than desktop, but optimized images will certainly help. That said, if you simply cannot get into the high 80's or 90's out of 100 on mobile, then you can try different themes. We've found some themes can give you 100/100 consistently, where others can only achieve in the 80/100 even with all of the optimizations we do for you here with our WA hosting.

Always an option to try other themes to see how they perform.
Reply
kmer6 Premium
Wow, another reason that WA is still the best platform to belong to! I am getting high 90's in the desktop speeds of my website. However, I'm getting low 40's in the Mobile speed test. I wonder why? I thank you for sharing this bold move, Carson, and best of luck to you and your team in the revision of all websites imagery.

Hi Ken,

With Google Pagespeed Analysis you'll be able too see what is causing load for Mobile. If it's imagery then it'll tell you. If it's something like "Render blocking above the fold", then you may be able to achieve higher scores with a different theme as all themes have their own code that loads with the page.

Also, it's a good idea to always test the same URL twice with Google Pagespeed analysis to ensure that the SiteSpeed Cached page is being served. Once a page is Cached, you'll see a huge jump in speed and score but it take an initial page view to get it cached and there is separate cache for Mobile VS Desktop.

Thank you, Carson. I'm really glad to hear that we'll be able to upgrade our current sites soon. My site for the SAC is having speed issues. I'm only now discovering and researching that, and there may be other reasons, but I am looking forward to using the Kraken!

What a year for updates and improvements! Thank you guys!

Hey Cris, glad that you're taking the SAC course, it's awesome and we'll be coming out with the next lesson after the weekend. We had planned to release it today but due to the 4th of July Holiday we'll release it early next week. If your site is not performing well in Google Pagespeed Analysis then Kraken may help with that if the issue is image size. Else maybe reach out in the SAC training to ask for some help/suggestions on how to improve.

Dear Carson,
I have joined WA in March 2019, hence using EWWW image optimizer. Recently I have their notification of 'Upgrade Available' & I have upgraded it for my website. So for us, we are doing nothing about Kraken at this point. Waiting until your 'Coming Soon' proposal. Thanks for your intimation!
Chandrashekhar.

P.S.: After going through your above post, I realized that I should have used the images given in site content at WA instead of going to Pixabay for free images. I totally forgot this feature at site content. Henceforth I am going to make it a point to use images available there.
Reply
Carson Premium
Hi Chandrashekhar,

Using EWWW's optimization upgrade makes it work similarly to how Kraken does by sending off your images to EWWW servers to have the images optimized there. With Kraken, it does the same thing, but you won't have to pay for it as it's now included. You can switch over to Kraken when the WA Server upgrade is available. Wont be long :)

Yes, using SiteContent images gets the images from Pixabay, Pexels, and Unsplash, then optimizes them with Kraken when you publish!

Glad you'll be using it going forward.

Hi Carson,

I think it is great that you and Kyle are always striving to improve the platform here at WA and seeking new ways to improve its efficiency by adding new features influenced by the latest technology. Which helps its members improve their websites and there SERPs, the two of you make it easy for members of WA to be proud of being part of this organization.

Although it does still have its faults, I see that between the members and your staff it is improving and staying ahead of the competition. This makes it easier for your members that are websites owners to also stay ahead of their competition. For that, I give you both a huge pat on the back, kudos, and a firm hand shack of appreciation for what you have done to the platform in the past year since I have been a member.

I know that the two of you and everyone involved in the platform plan to and gladly will keep up this pace of putting its members in the forefront of technology breakthroughs that excel our websites far in front of most of our competition.

Being a member that struggled with page speeds in the past I am now wondering if the Kraken plugin addresses the issue that many other members here face and are still facing with page speeds and that is image formats.

JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, and WebP image formats often provide better compression than PNG or JPEG, is this an issue that Kraken deals with. Or do we need to go back and change out our images to these new formats prior to using Kraken and the new servers?

Looking forward to what is next for the platform – Keep up the Great work, it may not be said enough but what you do is greatly appreciated!!

Hi Calvin,

This was partially addressed by Kyle a bit further down this thread, and at least WebP is supported by Kraken.

I think you're gonna have to do some research to find out whether the other two formats are supported :)

Hi Calvin,

As new formats like WebP become more widely adopted we will most definitely be integrating options to serve these from your sites as well. Actually, we've been working on this already and coming up with technology that can serve WebP images without any involvement by the owner of the site. That said, this is going to take some more time because it's quite involved, but you can rest assured it'll be an option at some point with our managed Wordpress hosting offered at WA!

Hi Carson,

Thanks for the speedy reply, I think this will most definitely be greatly appreciated by the members here.

I have personally had plenty of members ask me questions about increasing page speeds and to date, this seems to be one of the largest widespread issues (image optimization) for all website owners not just WA members.

So it will be great to see how things progress, because I think you will diligently have this problem worked on till it is solved.

Thanks again for your hard and dedicated work!

Thats great news, I have just started noticing recently that my image-rich review posts are affecting my overall site speed.

I use images in my blogs of course but the fore front of my website is a store. I sell Antique books. So how in my dashboard (I use a storefront WooCommerce theme) if I'm uploading product, I go under 'new product post" instead of a regular post. Images do not go within a blog the upload to a gallery area. (I post at least 15 images of any single book I sell) I have EWWW already do I do anything differently for my product posts? I cannot use site content with these particular image gallery Product posts?

I cannot thank you and Kyle enough for the fantastic work you are doing for us all. I must confess that the more I learn about what's on offer at WA the more I keep asking myself how on earth it took me so many years to find you.
To cut a long story short, I have been all over the place and spent thousands of pounds on stuff that cost next to nothing at WA and is covered in all I need to start my online marketing. Thank you so much, and I highly recommend WA to any newcomer. ALL YOU NEED IS RIGHT HEAR AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE! Best wishes to everyone.

Hi, Carson and thanks for continually updating and making WA better for us. Just a couple of questions. When you say it will not work with older websites, how old are you talking about?

Also, Does the image optimization work with images that are manually downloaded to site comments get the same optimization as the 1,000,000+ images that are available? Sometimes one can't find what they need (hard to believe with over 1,000,000 images available) so they have to use a screenshot. Are these optimized as well?

Thanks again and you guys rock.

Your family looks AWWWSOME.

True. Technically this plugin is very sophisticated and I've been using this for almost 1 month now with the technical support here in our Site Support area. But I was wondering after reading that we can still use the EWWW because I was advised to disable or delete the same.

Thanks, Carson for sharing.

This is certainly great news, I've been using Kraken this entire time. I also found it to be the best image optimizer.

Good day Carson

Awesome! When I rebuilt my website on WP, after moving the hosting over to WA, I realized that AWWW was replaced by Kraken and I did have the flash thought, wondering whether I caught you guys in spoiling us with another upgrade? ;-) Now I've got the answer. ;-)

> any images that are uploaded directly through WordPress
> are going ot be "Kraked" (Optimized). Any images added
> through SiteContent are also Kraked!
Another example of a thorough blogpost which answers all possible questions - as I immediately wondered whether images directly uploaded through WP would also be optimized - glad to know for sure that they are.

Carson, you and Kyle never fail to surprise us - Thank You! WA is absolutely an amazing platform and the value that we receive here, leaves us speachless. You lead, by setting the example for us, Thank You!
And of course, SiteSupport, they are our hero's - one would be hard pressed to get faster support - please tell them that we say a B-I-G Thank You!

Wishing you an awesome day and may what's left of 2019, surpass all your expectations!

I was having some issues with site speed a while back, due in part, to the theme I had chosen. Site Support asked if I would like to participate in the BETA server test and I agreed to try it out.

Wow! What a huge difference in performance. When these upgrades get rolled out it will nothing short of game-changing spectacular. My site's speed went from All Ahead Slow to Got Up and Gone!

Great! One of my websites is on the Beta new server, does that mean that I could upload the Kraken plugin? Or does site support have to do that?
Since they have moved my website I get the warning:

EWWW Image Optimizer requires exec() to perform local compression. Your system administrator has disabled the exec() function, ask them to enable it.
An API key or ExactDN subscription will allow you to offload the compression to our dedicated servers instead.

But they didn't add Kraken

So I am a little confused

I'm on BETA server, that's exactly what I messaged SiteSupport today (the original question was about something else), they did disable EWWW and add Kraken.

So, do contact them, it's best they add it themselves so we don't mess it up anyhow ;)

The new images will be compressed automatically using Kraken, the old ones already on site, you'll have to optimize them yourself.

Also thought I'd share their response re: optimization.

-------
Me:

Anyway, I see that you've already made the changes, awesome. Do I need to do anything (like bulk optimizing with EWWW), or Kraken will automatically take care of the images?

SiteSupport:

Once the plugin is active, and assuming you’ve left the “Automatically optimize uploads” setting checked, all new images you upload to the media library will be optimized as part of the upload process. It does slow things down a little.

If you want to optimize images that are already in the media library, you can either do it on an image-by-image basis or in bulk. Both are handled in the media library page–make sure you’re using the list view rather than the thumbnail grid (you toggle with the small icons at the top left of the media library).

Beside each image, you’ll see the Optimize this Image button.

After each image processes, the button will be replaced by a report that shows the new file size, the type of optimization performed, and how many thumbnail versions were processed.

To optimize a bunch of images at once, check the box next to each one or check the box at the top or bottom to select all, and then use the drop-down Bulk Actions to select “Krak ’em all.” Then hit Apply.

Hope this helps! :)

It is because of these types of upgrades to the overall Wealthy Affiliate platform, that makes WA the #1 recommendation for ANYONE looking to create their own website business.

There are other affiliate marketing training websites out there but WA is #1 for many reasons. The community help, the 24/7 super tech support, the easy training, and website building resources.

I love all of these but the one thing that I like the most is knowing that you Carson, along with Kyle and the rest of the WA team behind the scenes, will always offer new upgrades for our success.

I always look forward to your blogs because I know something great is being added to the Wealthy Affiliate experience. Best part? More added value yet the cost of membership remains the same.
