How To Optimize Image Size To Improve Your Rankings

 SEO



Optimizing image in your blog/site is very important. This may some times effect your blog SEO. If your blog is taking long time to load then it may affect your rankings and increase your bounce rate.

When I was writing the post free wordpress themes I worked with some tools which used to decrease image size with out losing quality.

So here I will be sharing only two tools which I used to decrease image size.

1. Smush.it

Yahoo Sumsh.it

Smush.it optimizes images by removing unnecessary bytes. It is acquired by Yahoo and it is served under YSLow. You can upload bulk images at a time and all the images size will be optimized by this wonderful tool.

2. Caesium

Caesium is also a free tool to optimize image size. Like Sumsh.it Caesium also supports bulk image size optimization. But when I compared two tools by optimizing same images and I found that this tool is better than Smush.it in terms of speed and reducing size. So normally use Caesium to optimize image size. Both are good and both are free you can select any one. Download Caesium.

If you know any better image size optimization tool then please share here in comments.

    [...] So to tell users that you have email subscription option? The old and most used way is to add a custom box in side bar of your blog another most practiced way is to add the email subscription box at the end of each box. It is very simple to add at the side bar as you can do it just by adding code to widgets but adding to every post that too at the end before comments! is what only PHP programmers can do. But that`s not right it is very easy and here I will make you learn to design your own email subscription box rather than copying or downloading plugin which can make your blog slowly. [...]

    Hi Khaja,

    I use RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) to reduce PNG image size without losing quality; its PNG image compression is better than Smush.it. I’ll give Caesium a try, it sounds good :D
