Optimise Images for your Website
Most people are unaware unless their website developer tells them that after the site is finished and handed over to the client that they should always optimise images before they upload them to their website. However in in my own experience, I have found that most still upload images directly from their camera, phone or scanned image. The problem with this is that the the image is going to be uploaded as 2mb or 6mb instead of 50kg. This error is going to make your site load much slower thereby encouraging the user to click out of the site. It is fantastic to get them there in the first place, don’t lose them because you haven’t taken the time to learn how to do this.
- Move your images from your camera or phone to your PC.
- Change the name of your image from IMG 23554545 (which is usually what they are named) to something more SEO Friendly.
- Optimise the images with a program such as Free Image Converter.
- Upload the optimised image to the page of your site.
- Give you images an alt tag.
If you don’t have one, try Internet Download Manager.
