Image OptimisationBecause Fast Equals Better Rankings
In order for your website to rank well it needs to download quickly, especially over mobile connections. Many things can affect the speed of a website including image size, server speed and the amount and type of code on a page.
Images are usually the largest element of any webpage and identifying and optimising large images that are bloating your web page sizes is your first step to ensuring that your website downloads fast and you rank where you deserve.
That means we can quickly identify and solve all your website image issues.
We can help you with everything from recommending the right file type for each image to optimising your images so that your website loads quickly for users while minimising your server's band width.
And if you're stuck for images, we can help you with those too.
So, how does the process work?
We audit all of your images and identify those that are affecting your page download times and search rankings.
We’ll download the images identified in the auditing process in preparation for optimisation. Or you can provide them for us.
We’ll optimise the dimensions and quality of your images for the web to reduce your image size so your pages download faster.
We'd love to work with you too!
”As our search engine optimisation partner, Digitator worked closely with our content team to identify the images on our website that had sneaked through our internal optimisation process and were leading to slow loading webpages. Optimising these images led to a significant decrease in page size, an improvement in download speeds, and an increase in Google rankings across key pages.”Leon Andrews, Dixons Carphone
