Default Site load speed.

Hey team

I have been test the load speed of my web site and these issues are always the top three issues that show up every time.

Serve scaled images



Specify image dimensions



Optimize images
Now I have done everything you recommend including caching and have had at server side everything compressed but these issues relate to optimising and serving scaled images.

Any other suggestions for me here.

Hi

The 2nd issue is easily solvable but could mess up your layout. You would have to set the images width and height and that could distort the image.

For example: <img src="[product.thumbnail tag='0']" width="150" height="150" />

But this could cause your images to look bad.

The 1st and 3rd thing are a lot trickier. You would need to run all of the merchant images through a PHP image resizer. You might look for a plugin that does this... It could be a bit complicated.

Hey Eric

I had a SEO company look at this issue and they said the image issues are really hurting my organic listings in Mr Google.

If it is affecting me it will affecting all datafeedr users whether they realise it not. Could not something be coded into the factory to resolve this for your users?

As I suggested, surely something could be built into the factory to try and resolve this issue?
