Why is my page “Slow-ding”?

How many of you click on or furiously click on a link when a website doesn’t load? Patience is a virtue, but let’s be real — “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” We like turbo loading pages and gorgeous hero images. Hero images can cause glacial load times IF they aren’t optimized and compressed properly.

The face I make when your website isn't optimized

Let's fix this

Enter, compressor.io — our BFF and soon to be yours too. After you resize your images to their appropriate size — because who needs a 2400px x 800px 300dpi image for a teeny tiny thumbnail — load your image into compressor.io and voila! Your image is probably 70% to 80% smaller in file size with no visible loss to the beauty of your photo. Fast load times will make your site visitors happy. When site visitors are happy, Google is happy. Hence, Search Engine Optimization (SEO).


A plus, the super cute iguana that welcomes you to their site. Go ahead, load your image and watch it compress. Download it and load it up to your site. Keep calm and decompress — rather, compress on.
