seo-image-sizeYou should all know by now that page load times matter in terms of how it impacts on the website SEO.
To ensure that your images do not impact your page load times, make the image file size as small as possible (without sacrificing the image quality by blurring it).
There are a number of free tools avialble that will allow you to re size your images easily
But, most importantly, DO NOT let your browser resize a large image to look smaller. ie take a 1800px wide image that is 3mb in size and use the tags available to resize the image down to 220px wide, you will see that the image looks blurred and the file size will still be 3mb!
Yes, that will impact your page load speed, resize the images to the correct size required from scratch, take time to prepare the images before you start on your article.
