Lazy Loading Images – Page Speed Optimization

What happens if we access a page, but the progress icon keeps on rotating for too long? Well, we all wish if this waiting time can be reduced. So now, our new Lazy Loading Images – Page Speed Optimization will help you to reduce loading time of your website pages. Lazy Loading refers to load on demand. Lazy Loading Images works on the principle “loading of images should be delayed until required / demanded.” It is used to load images on the websites after the page load completes and not with the initial page load which helps in enhancing speed of the website pages.

A very simple concept for lazy loading is: Don’t load something until you really need it.


What is Lazy Loading?

Normally when a user opens a webpage, the entire page’s contents are loaded and rendered in a single go. While this allows the browser to cache web pages, there’s no guarantee that user will actually view all of the loaded content. Instead of bulk loading of all the content when the page is accessed, content can be loaded when user accesses a part of the page that requires it. With lazy loading, pages are created with placeholder images which is replaced with actual images when user needs / demands it.



    Page Speed Optimization

    The plugin loads images after the page load completes and speed up your loading time through lazy loading. Images outside of the visible area will get loaded only when user reaches them. This will not only optimize the page loading speed, it will even increase your traffic.

  • Improves Ranking

    Normally images are loaded initially which reduces the page load speed, and speed is an important ranking factor. This plugin improves page load speed and helps in improving ranking as it loads images when required / demanded by user.

  • Load on Demand

    With lazy loading, pages are created with placeholder images which is replaced with actual image when user demands it. Unnecessary loading of images is avoided which helps in enhancing the website performance.

  • Good User Experience

    Adding Lazy Loading Images in the website increases its loading speed, saves bandwidth, and provides an uninterrupted browsing session which results into good user experience.

Key Features


Page Load Optimization

  • Website speed is a crucial aspect for a website, Lazy Loading Images Plugin helps in improving page load speed.
  • When lazy loading is disabled, page load time is 10.9ms.
  • When lazy loading is enabled, page load time is 4.87ms.
  • When lazy loading is enabled, the page load time is less as compared to the case when lazy loading is disabled. It reduces page load time and helps in increasing the website speed and improves its performance.
    • Load On Demand

      The plugin delays the loading of the images until the point where user demands / needs it.

      When someone adds a resource to a web page (image) , the resource references a small placeholder. As a user browses the web page, the actual resource is cached by the browser and replaces the placeholder when the resource becomes visible on the user’s screen.

      It helps in avoiding unnecessary loading of images which helps in enhancing the website performance.

    • Load Of Content Before Images

      Normally when a user opens a webpage, content and images are loaded at same time, but with the help of the plugin, content is loaded before the images when the page loads initially.

      The images are not loaded initially with the page load but when the user demands it. It helps in improving website performance and helps in optimizing page speed.




Lazy Loading Images – Page Speed Optimization is definitely a sure shot way to add value to performance & user experience for your web presence.


    Improves Performance

    With lazy loading, you are improving the page load time as the resources requests is less. Lesser resource requests mean lesser bytes to download and lesser competition for the limited network bandwidth available to the user. This helps in processing the remaining resources much faster.

    On Demand Loading

    Lazy loading defers the loading of resources on the page as long as they are not needed. Instead of loading these resources as soon as the page loads, which is what normally happens, the plugin defer the load of these resources to a later time when they are actually needed or demanded to load.

    Saves Bandwidth

    A website which loads the content at one go consumes more bandwidth & memory and it becomes a complete waste when user leaves the page in between. This plugin helps the application consumes less memory because of on-demand loading.

    Higher Customer Retention

    Businesses see higher customer retention as content is continuously fed to the user, reducing the chances of user leaving the website. It results in user engagement and provides good user experience.

    Loading Of Content Before Images

    Webpages are loaded faster as images are loaded after initial loading of rest of the content. So, users don't have to wait for longer to view a page. It provides good user experience resulting into increased user engagement.

    Cost Reduction

    Cloud hosting services, like CDNs, web servers or storages deliver images at a cost based on the number of bytes transferred. A lazy loaded image may never get loaded if user never reaches it. Thus, you may reduce the total bytes delivered on a page and ultimately save yourself a few pennies.
